Oh my gosh you guys—you're kidding me! There are times when you DON'T WANT to do your test prep? You mean, you look at your calendar and see "SAT Prep" clearly inked in with your favorite pen and you're not like, "Heck yes, let's go!" ? I don't understand. I thought I could maybe address this topic, but I was wrong. I'm stumped. I cannot relate.

Seriously though. Not being "In the mood" happens to everyone and it isn't limited to activities that we flat out dislike. I generally consider myself to be someone who enjoys cooking, and, yet, there are times when I'm not particularly in the mood to cook. I love writing this blog and reaching out to you all. But there are times when I know that Wednesday is approaching and think to myself, "I will write something tomorrow."
So, what do we do when it isn't an optional once-a-week obligation to be fulfilled at any point but a practice, something we must show up for time and time again?
