Freaky Friday: Three Words That Bring Happiness & Power Into Your Life

Freaky Friday: Every Friday a new post dealing with love, relationships, dating...and anything else the human soul may need answered.  

 A few weeks ago, I came across a quick video where the owner of Life is Good, Bert Jacobs, was saying something in regard to three words that can change your day and your outlook on life.  The three words are "I get to".  For example; instead of saying "I have to go to work." You would replace "I have to" with "I get to go to work."  Reality is, you do get to go to work, you don't have to.  You always have a choice.  

We all know this deep down inside--that we have a choice.  Changing our outlook is a choice.  You don't have to love anyone, you get to love someone.  You don't have to go to yoga, you get to go to yoga.  There are some people in the world who are not able to live the life that you live or do the things you can do.  Honor that by changing your mindset and using these three simple words, "I get to".  

I for one, began to implement this change of phrase.  I found a beautiful transformation with these three little words.  Instead of saying, "I have to eat a salad."  I now say, "I get to eat salad."  These three words move the conversation from me being forced to be healthy, to energized about taking care of myself.

 We live in a world that is so fast, I sometimes don't know where I receive some of the information that enters my brain. I am not able to find the video where Bert mentions this change of phrase but I have found one of Bert's inspiring 10 minute videos that I think you'll enjoy.  

I would love to hear from you!  Think you could make this change?  Does it seem easy to do or difficult?  If you have made this change, have you seen a change in your world?  And if you can find the video, please share it or forward to me and I'll make an update to the post.

Peace, Love & Hugs!
