When was the last time you did something you really didn’t want to do?
This past week I’ve found myself doing things I don’t want to do. I’ve been reacting to things outside of my control and found myself in moments of uncertainty and having the make decisions as best I can based on the knowledge I’ve had in that moment.
We can’t plan everything…
Life being the roller-coaster that it is, we have to navigate our way through the ups and downs it brings. There may be moments we are laughing our heads off and at other times reaching for the sick bag and wanting to get off the ride.
Change as we all know is part of life, a process of natural development, learning and letting go, evolving and moving towards self actualising. Sometimes it’s easy at other times coming out of the other side of fear, because it’s unknown seems like an impossible task.
I’ve decided to enable myself to get through doing the things I don’t want to do, but need to be done, I’m going to do those things with great love. I invite you to do the same.
So if today, because it’s Monday morning and back to work for many, if you really don’t feel like getting out of bed and going to a job that simply pays the bills, how would it be to seize the day, enjoy the journey to work, be loving and kind towards your co-workers, smile at a stranger, love what you do because it does pay the bills, provides food and shelter, safety and living a higher standard of life that many may not be blessed with.
If there is a person you do not normally enjoy interactions with who you will see this week, take love with you into the conversation and notice what changes.
If you’re fed up with doing your family’s laundry, washing the dishes, walking the dog and preparing meals, just take a moment and reflect on the love of having a family to care for and decide to do those tasks with great love, you will feel happier for it.
Today is not a day of my choosing. You will have or have already experienced those kinds of days too.
There are go places I don’t want to go and things I never imagined I will have to do which need doing. I know I will have some moments of surrealism and uncertainty though I know when I do the things I don’t want to do, with great love, I will get though and so will you.
Do the things you think you can’t, they will make you ever stronger on the roller coaster of life x
