Get to vs have to

March 12, 2021 — Leave a comment

What a difference changing one word makes.

I get to hop on my bike and go for a ride. I get to put on my running shoes and go for a run. I get to swim lap after lap in the local pool. It is something I have the choice to do and I get to do these things and a lot more.

There are a lot of people just in the multiple sclerosis community, not to mention everyone else, who would love to have the choice to get to do all that I do. For many they can’t.

I sometimes don’t realize how fortunate I am to get to do what I do. When my mind starts slipping in to the “have to” mindset, I need to remember it is my choice. I don’t have to, I get to!
