You get a choice. Always.
Until I embraced this concept and looked for evidence in my life that it was true…I thought I didn’t. Like we all are programmed to think and believe.
Over and over I thought this. I thought I had to go to school, I have to go to work, I have to eat healthy and exercise and be a “good” girl.
It’s like there’s an unspoken “or else” in there, right?
Then it’s like the clouds parted and the sun shined down and illuminated this one thing: It’s all a lie.
You don’t HAVE TO do anything.
You take actions or don’t take them based on the results you want and don’t want.
I tend to not like the outcome of if I choose not to eat fruits and vegetables and instead dive head first into a bowl of ice cream.
I don’t feel good when I haven’t exercised in a few days.
After about 3 days maximum of not eating mostly whole foods and not moving my body and I feel tired, grouchy, and not like my normal happy self. So I choose to eat foods that nourish me, get along with my gut and also sometimes foods that entertain me.
You always have a choice.
You don’t have to get up in the morning. But you don’t like the alternative.
If you got rid of your “have to”s and replace them with “get to”s what changes for you?
Next time “have to” pops into your head, stop and evaluate how that statement feels.
Then replace it with “I get to….”. See what changes.
Change can be simple. And it starts with our choices.
