We all do it. We all say, "Gosh, I can't meet you for lunch I have to go to the grocery store." Or, "I'm headed out right now, I have to go to my sons football game."
How silly of us...when we actually "get to" do these things.
OK...sure this can be a stretch. Like if you are guilty of something you just might "have to" go to court. But...even there we are fortunate to have a court system to "go to".
You can catch the drift...
So...just maybe this weekend we try to change our "have to" to "get to".
"Sorry, I can't go to the movie. I get to go to the grocery store."
"I get to take thirty minutes to pay the bills."
Think about it, we are so fortunate to have grocery stores to go to, a job that allows us to "pay bills", live in a country that has a court system, sons and daughters that we "get to" watch at football or basketball games.
What a great outlook changing two words can make...this weekend let's give it a try.
