This is an excerpt from my blog last year about the things the academy of life has taught me over the years which you can check out https://ikomusana.wordpress.com/2015/04/04/the-things-i-have-learnt/?_
The blog challenge must go on and today I get to tell you about my favorite quote of all time.
Feelings are overrated.
There is always someone willing to throw something at me every time I mention this but we all know it’s true.
Its easier to focus on what you feel and forget what you deserve which is why more often than not you need to bundle those feelings of resentment,not wanting to read case books,not wanting to pray or talk to your friends into a tiny box and focus on the important things.
Feelings will get in your way of achieving the best.
Not that they are not important but they can be overlooked.
There are alot of things I never feel like doing including getting up every morning but well law school is not going to attend itself.
Joyce Meyer says , “make a quality decision not to live by feelings they are a fickle” & I that is a choice I have to deal with everyday.
For example I really didn’t want to go to work to day but am heading to a prison as I type this to convince some prisoners that they are better off accepting they committed the crime and getting a lighter sentence than waiting and going to a trial they may lose.
It’s not fun, I don’t feel like doing it, it’s actually pretty sad and depressing but feelings are overrated.
Otherwise how are you feeling today?
