Just Do It!

This post was supposed to come yesterday, but I was sipping on lime, ginger and honey teas, taking multiple naps and trying to nurse myself back to good health. So, I’m going to say ‘Happy Tuesday’. The working week starts today for me.

During the few hours that I was conscious, I took that time to force my unwilling flesh to apply for jobs. It usually takes me a lot of pep talk and motivation to even get me to focus on doing that rather than watching YouTube videos, but I did it.

After overcoming that hurdle – deciding – the next was finding something that I liked, then actually applying for it. And it took everything within me to do it, because there comes that ugly devil called ‘fear’. You don’t know what’s on the other side. You don’t know if you’ll be accepted. Can you even do the job? It’s something completely new, but new is what you want.

I battled with all of these thoughts, but in the midst of the unnecessary turmoil, there was a sudden stab of clarity. Just do it! Just apply. Just upload your CV. Just write that cover letter. Just do it!

We have moments like this in all aspects of life, and it can sometimes take all our willpower to do the right thing. But once we do, we can smile because we didn’t give in to our feelings. It may seem small but I’m proud of myself, because if there’s one thing I hate, it’s applying for jobs πŸ˜“.

Now, I have to keep up the momentum and not just let this be a one-time thing. If I slack, I won’t see the results I want and it will only be my fault. I couldn’t possibly blame anyone else.

So, if you’re reading this and that one thing keeps coming to your mind that you haven’t yet done, but you know you need to, just do it. You’ll be proud of yourself after and you can thank me later πŸ˜‰. Have a great day!

    Love the motivational post! Two things come to mind… exercising and doing my taxes LOL.
    Both things are at the opposite ends of the spectrum (haha) but they are definitely two things I need to get done. I’ll go ahead and make my appointment now for my taxes. I love how some motivational words from another blogger can really resonate lol. Thanks Mich!
