What would happen to your life if you changed every “have to” to “get to“? What would happen to you —- physically, emotionally, and professionally?
I woke up with this question on my mind as I pulled myself out of bed at 6:00am for my obligatory morning run. I have to get up, I thought to myself, I have to run. I then pressed my snooze button for an hour, because nobody wants to do what they have to do.
After I started jogging at 7am, I smiled. I love running. I especially love running in the crisp morning air. Running is a blessing, it is a gift, it is an honor. I get to run. I get to run in a safe, beautiful neighborhood where everyone waves good morning to me.
Everyday, I get to exercise. I get to go to work. I get to learn through bad days, and I get to rejoice in good days. Because I am blessed, I get the opportunity to go to the doctor when needed, grocery store whenever I want, and I get to pay my bills on time.
Change every have to into a get to and your life will turn around in ways you never dreamed possible, for we are exceedingly blessed beyond our knowledge.
