Last night I was complaining about how tired I was and how many things I didn’t get done yesterday. The hubby blurted out, “shut up! you get to go to work in sweat pants.” Before I could defend my lulus, I laughed and remembered yet another ah-ha moment I had at advanced vinyasa teacher training: I GET TO…
Consider how you show up for your day when your alarm goes off. What’s the first thought that runs thru your head? “Ugh.. I have to get up for work. I have to get the kids ready for school. I have to do this. I have to do that. I have to, have to, have to.” How does that leave you feeling for the rest of the day?
When I doubled my teaching schedule, I started to say “I have to teach another class” when my buzzard went off at 5am. Needless to say, I started to feel like teaching was a J-O-B… something that I never wanted to feel because I love this yoga stuff.
No doubt life throws us all sorts of challenges and there are things that we need to do, but how we show up for it makes a big difference. I’m not trying to be a cheesy cheerleader for positivity (it helps though) but try to change one word in your vocabulary from “HAVE to” to “GET to” and notice an immediate shift in your way of being.
What do you get to do today?
