Why You Should Do Things You Don't Want to Do

To be honest, I didn't want to blog this week. My heart wasn't invested in it, and my mind kept throwing the excuse that if I'm not passionate about it, why should I bother.


I could not have been more wrong.


We all have days where we just don't feel like doing. Whether it'd be procrastinating on homework, skipping a work out, cheating on a diet, taking the next step toward a goal. Showing up everyday isn't easy.



What's beautiful about these moments is overcoming those temptations. Our minds will always have an abundance of excuses why we shouldn't, because that's easier. But what's rewarding is mentally challenging yourself to just do it.


The best example I can think of is the prelude of going to the gym. Sometimes we don't have the energy to go, and our mind will throw every reason to convince us not to. But, in those moments when you still choose to go, there's never a time when you regret going. You may regret not going, but you won't regret going.



Productivity and accomplishment is healthier for the mind than laziness and inconsistency. The last thing you want to say when you're older is "I wish I did..." A pile of regrets is a heavy load to carry.



While I may not have been wanting to blog this week, I'm glad I did because it led to this post. Overcoming something mentally can often be harder than overcoming something physically. Take your deep breaths, count to three, and just do it. Make yourself proud and enjoy the journey of life.
