marcusQuote of the Day:

When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love. Marcus Aurelius

Instead of saying, “I have to.” say “I get to.”  I am choosing the language of privilege every chance I get.

  • I don’t have to workout this morning; I get to workout. What a privilege to be healthy and be able to care for my body.
  • I don’t have to stop by the grocery store on my way home; I get to stop by the grocery store. What a privilege to live in a place and at a time where we don’t have to forage for food.

I learned this from Michael Hyatt and I wanted to share it with you. I think when we are losing weight we need to use “I get to…” as often as we can. If we think of working out and eating healthy as a privilege, the task of getting healthy won’t seem so daunting.
