On not feeling like it

Consider all the stuff we enjoy;
The warm security of a happy home
A book that takes you somewhere that you never want to leave
A clinic that adds value to thousands of lives
Music that cradles your heart through hardship
Sermons that lift your spirit to the skies-
These were probably made by people who at some point didn’t feel like they were fit to be there,
Or that people wouldn’t want what they had to offer
Or maybe simply didn’t feel like it.
And yet they gave what they had to give- and we are richer for it.
Doing the work when you don’t feel like it
Doesn’t necessarily cheapen your contributions.
Not feeling like it doesn’t have to be an ultimatum with yourself
Where you hold your contribution hostage to your feelings.
You can join the wonderful people who keep our communities running
Whether they felt like it or not.
