Do you have to, or are you lucky enough to be able to?
It can be easy to get dragged down and feel overwhelmed by the mundane moments of our days.
Simple chores can start to become dreaded moments and we forget to focus on how privileged we are.
An easy way to give yourself a quick mindset fix is to change your “I have to” into “I get to.”
This actually changes your outlook from one of begrudging acceptance into one of gratefulness and possibility!
When you focus on the added value that the task at hand can bring to your life, you invite more joy and happiness into each moment. Think about how fortunate you are to be able to live the life that you do! Finding ways to be appreciative in life allows you to foster a positive outlook and transform your way of looking at the world.
This shift in vocabulary might seem small, but it produces big results! Words are powerful.
You don’t have to go to the grocery store; you get to go to the grocery store. What a privilege to be able to feed your family! You don’t have to go to work; you get to go to work. What a privilege to have gainful employment!
Becoming aware of the language you use and its impact on you can help you to make this positive shift.
Fostering a mindset of gratitude and thankfulness can help you to identify moments that you would miss if they were not there.
So the next time you catch yourself saying “I have to…”, take a pause and challenge yourself to put on those rose-colored glasses and enjoy the view!
