Tip 18: “I have to” versus “I get to”

15 Dec 2015 7:06 AM | Heather Kaye (Administrator)

It this crazy time of year when your to do list is longer than the yellow brick road, it is hard to be upbeat about getting everything done in time!

And yet, there is a big difference between saying “I have to” do something versus “I get to” do something?
It’s all about your perspective. Oftentimes, the things we “have to do” are actually rewarding.
For example,  “I have to” buy gifts, attend parties, plan menus, wrap presents, etc. The rewards are numerous. “I get to” create a special event for my friends and family, thank those that have been good to me all year, and share festivities with colleagues. “I get to” enjoy the Holiday lights around the city. “I get to” connect with loved ones far and wide and share my family traditions.

During this time of the year, it is so easy to get overwhelmed and forget we “get to” do whatever we choose to enrich our lives, take care of ourselves, enjoy our loved ones and so much more.
