What to do when you don’t want to do the things that you must do?

Friends and fellow lurkers, ask me anything and I’ll try to answer it if I can. Isn’t this a good way to have daily prompts? ๐Ÿ˜€ Keep your questions coming. ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t know if it’s just the “holiday feeling” that got me going nuts. I love my work and my team mates (I’m soooo lucky to be working with an awesome bunch) but I feel like I am dragging myself to get up in the morning. I want to have some extra hours of sleep or just laze around all day. Can y’all relate?

So, I took some time to stretch and then lie down to rest after the mini workout. I don’t feel like getting up but I should and I did because of these reasons:

  1. I told myself that it’s much harder if I am not earning money (Freelancing is OK, so please don’t feel small if you are a freelancer. Any other legal job that puts food on the table is great, we are not terrorists!)
  2. I think about my sunshine who happens to be my baby. This is self-explanatory. ๐Ÿ˜€
  3. This is a contract job. This will end soon so I might as well work and enjoy the ride!

Whatever your reason is, it is valid! I wish you well and I hope you’ll try to do the things that you must do, even one step at a time! ๐Ÿ™‚

My answer to the question above is simply to get up and don’t get down, after you’ve done some rituals to get yourself moving. We all have different reasons why we don’t want to get up or do stuff and it’s harder if you are experiencing depression, a downturn or a situation that you don’t feel like it.

I salute you for getting up, for getting by and most of all, for trying to live through the day. Sometimes, the This too shall pass adage doesn’t work but it is a great reminder that not all things in life are permanent. Well, 2020 is almost a week from now! Cheers to a great year ahead! ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

 

Why You Should Keep Going

 

Nothing in life is permanent except change. Everything comes and goes. If that’s a fact, then it is enough consolation to keep going, no matter what stage of life we are in. We all know that nothing is certain, so I hope you can add this to your many reasons on why you should keep going.

You think you are not good and you think you will just fail. Who knows, tomorrow is your lucky day or you’ll make it to be your lucky day! Keep going.

You have no confidence. The great thing is, you can practice to be confident about yourself. Practice takes time but you can do it. Keep going.

You are not happy with your current life and relationships. You can make things better for you and for them. Take note, it just takes time. Keep going.

You’re back to square one. Well, you can always start again and again, even if it’s fucking hard. Starting from scratch will be your talent in no time. Keep going.

You failed and failed and failed. So what? You’re just human and you can always try. Keep going.

You want to give up for good. Please don’t do it because you have gone this far. Will you waste your precious time for the many years of your hard work? Keep going.

There are lots of other reasons and dilemmas you will face. But one thing is for sure, you should keep going. Life ends, when we stop doing what we should be doing and when we give up for no good reason at all. ๐Ÿ™‚

Whatโ€™s done is done. Whatโ€™s gone is gone. One of lifeโ€™s lessons is always moving on. Itโ€™s okay to look back to see how far youโ€™ve come but keep moving forward.
