Not In The mood!

Ever feel like not doing something—you’re simply not in the mood? Yeah, me too.

I will be the first to admit, during the winter especially, my list of things I don’t feel like doing nor in the mood to do increases. Why? Well, to start with, I don’t enjoy extreme cold weather. But, since when has a mere cold weather stop a determined and focused mind? Never! Right, so that is just an excuse I cook up to convince myself that it’s okay to slack.

There is no perfect condition

I once saw a quote that says “You can either honor your mood or your commitment. You’ll always feel like NOT doing something.” If you wait for perfect conditions, you’ll never get anything done! This year (and beyond) don’t allow ‘not in the mood’ or ‘don’t feel like it’ deter you from making moves and achieving greater heights. Stop waiting for the perfect moment because there’s no such thing—it never comes. Get up and get started.

Don’t waste the opportunity God is sending your way because when God does His part He expects you to do your part. Doing your part means taking action—doing your part means believing in yourself—doing your part means parting ways with excuses that softens the negligence of your goals—doing your part means positioning yourself and aligning your mindset and attitude to receive and reap the fruits of your labour.

Check yourself often

Check yourself—are you really not in the mood or you just don’t want to do it? There are varying situations that calls for one to not be in the mood—example: death, lay-off, and accident to name a few—and are understandable. But if you’re like me, and you’re not in the mood or don’t feel like taking strides towards your goals because it’s cold outside?—check yourself. If you’re not in the mood to pursue your commitments because you missed out on a sale at your favourite store—check yourself. If you’re not in the mood because it rained on your favourite shoes or because you got the wrong topping on your pizza—check yourself. If you’re not in the mood because someone cut you off this morning while driving—check yourself. Check yourself when you find yourself allowing a certain human or minor events cause you to stop your day and put everything on hold. Twenty-four hours is a long time to waste.

Put in the required energy and effort mandatory for the level you aspire to be. Don’t waste grace.

  2. The long grey days of winter in the Midwest can definitely make me want to curl up in my recliner with a good book or favorite movie. I love that you said “Don’t waste grace” . I never thought to use the bleakness of winter for something better. Thank you.

  3. This is so true, we shouldn’t let our feelings deter us from getting things done. And we have to be aware of how we feel and be wise with it.

  4. Yikes, Ms. Sunshine! Don’t waste grace! That’s going in my journal straight away. All this week I’ve put off finishing something I’ve been working on for TWO years. Must get to it! Thank you for this nudge (grace kick) to keep going. Blessings!! 🌟🤗🌟

  5. “Don’t waste grace.” That’s good! I really loved this post. It’s incredibly true how we waste so much precious time and energy thinking about things that don’t matter or worrying about stuff that hasn’t even happened (and probably won’t!)

    Isn’t it amazing what can set off our moods sometimes? You’ve really given a powerful reminder here; there is no perfect time or condition. The more we put something off – the more likely we are to let it slip on by. You’re right – God does His part (the hardest part) and all we have to do is obey and act.

    Great post! Thanks so much for sharing! ♥
