Do You Get To Do More Than You Have To Do?

Do you get to do more than you have to? If you don’t you’re in trouble. Hey, I travel extensively as an Orlando based professional speaker – love to travel, but dislike being gone. So I had to figure this out.

You must do the same. Well, you don’t have to do anything, really, except live your life. My life became better after I figured out how to count blessings that weren’t readily visible at first.

  1. I’m so blessed to be a stay at home mom. What I get to do far outweighs what I have to do — I’m like at 80/20 or something. 🙂

  2. The nice thing is that even if there are some of the “get to”s that are also “have to”s, there can always be more “have to”s that will grow into “get to”s.
    Case in point – My Dad was my track and cross country coach in jr high and high school. I didn’t have a choice but to participate. In jr high running was a “have to”, which I did not like at all. It eventually became a “get to”.
    In fact, it was therapeutic. I looked forward to every opportunity I got.
