Here goes blog quote #248...
"A great way to show gratitude for what I have in life is when I substitute the words 'I GET TO' for the words 'I HAVE TO' ."
-Rena Reese, founder, Soul Salon International-
Think about how many times we say I have to go pick up the kids or I have to visit Grandma or I have to order the pizza for the family tonight. What if your kids were sick and unable to go out of the house where you get to go pick them up. How about Grandma. Not everyone's Grandma is still with us and some people would love the opportunity to get to go see their Grandma again. The ability to get to order out a pizza and not have to eat leftovers for the 4th night in a row is pretty special as well.
If you think about it, any time you catch yourself saying I HAVE TO 'whatever' , you can almost always replace that comment with I GET TO. This allows you a chance to give thanks and gratitude for ALL that you are blessed with.
Just a thought, and a good one at that, by Ms. Reese. I don't have to tell her thank you but I want to and get to tell her thank you.
That's my view....... What Say You?
