Recently life is life-ing! If you are new to my blog – welcome, but you should know sometimes I make up my own words. Just roll with it. 😂 So many things in my life occurring simultaneously in addition to working full time. Y’all sometimes between work and after-work activities – I’m exhausted!
But, there’s a phrase we say at our church and something I’ve read in several books this year which says “I Get To Do This.”
This phrase has helped me on so many long days of working when my eyes are crossed and I’m beyond tired!
This phrase has become a motto for my life – I get to do this!
I’m often cautious when I respond to my friends by text. For example, I remember recently texting a friend saying I have to do a task! I quickly corrected myself and said “ I get to do this!
The words “have to” sounds like a chore – while the word “get to” for me sounds like I have an option and it feels more like an honor or privilege.
I get to go to work every day.
I get to go to the gym and work out.
I get to blog and share my life to encourage and inspire others.
I get to write books.
I get to coach others and so much more!
We all know words have power! Life and death are in the power of your tongue. I challenge you to go through the week with the attitude that I get to do this vs I have to do this and share if it helped change your perspective for the week!
I get to do this!!!!
“The tongue can bring death or life; those who love to talk will reap the consequences.” Proverbs 18:21 NLT
