Replacing “have to” with “get to”

Mornin’ everyone! Happy hump day 😉

I read a cool article last week about reducing your “have-to’s” in life. (full article here from Becoming Minimalist)

The bit that stuck with me the most was changing your mindset about “have to” into “get to”.

  • Instead of thinking “I have to work today”… think, “I get to make money today!”
  • Instead of “I have to go grocery shopping”… think, “I get to buy foods and snacks that I like!”
  • Instead of “I have to attend a boring work meeting later on”… you could think, “I get to try my new dad jokes and spice up a boring meeting!”

Einstein said: “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

How are you looking at your world today?

Make it a good one,
