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.
