Gratitude

Had to share one of my friends thoughts… We should be grateful for everything that we have even if you think you are tired, sad or had a enough. Thanks Merlina for recreating my thoughts….

enoughToday I am grateful for the things I “get to do”…
A few weeks ago I found myself saying things like “I have to pay my mortgage” or on Sunday night i would say “I have to go to work tomorrow” or “I have to pay this bill”, “I have to wake up early in the morning” the list goes on and on. I said all of those things and then some with an attitude like that’s a problem….and then I said “Stop it Merlina, let’s change perspective here for a moment”…and let’s say “I get to pay my mortgage” , “I get to go to work on Monday”, “I get to pay my bills”, “I get to wake up early in the morning”.

I encourage everyone to replace “I have to” with “I get to”. It’s a privilege that others may not have, so enjoy the “I get to’s”, embrace the opportunity to do what others are not able to do and be grateful that you “get to do” it!!!
