day 314 – Semantics

I have been taught that instead of saying I have to do this or that, change it to I get to do this or that.  This brings in a sense of gratitude for doing anything and everything.  A victim has to do something as if tortured.  A healthy person gets to do something as if blessed.

I have learned that in place of I should…, I replace it with I choose to…This keeps the list of tasks down to a guiltless minimum not an overwhelming, heavy load of must do’s.

I have observed that when I say I cannot what I really mean is I will not.  When I pronounce I can’t this or I can’t that what I really mean is I won’t.  This shows my lack of willingness.
