I don’t feel like it. I’m not in the mood. I’m feeling off. Just three phases that involve feeling. What I’ve learned through the years is that you cant wait to “feel” good to do the right thing. Often times we fall short of our destiny because off of the way we react to our feelings. How do we overcome reacting to our feelings? Be intentional. Intentionally do the next right thing even when it’s boring, stressful, or overwhelming. In the words of Nike, Just Do It.
