Timely reminders

Today started off with a self beating, reprimand, dress down, criticism of the stupidity of getting involved in a dying association.

Nothing is more predictable than me, making a mistake and beating myself up for it.

Then, I turned on the radio and I heard a friendly voice:

“I don’t have to go to work, I GET to go to work.”

“I don’t have to take care of my kids, I GET to take care of my children”

“When you take “have to” and change it to a “get to” it’s a game changer.

Thanks pastor Joel Osteen for reminding me of how much I “get” to do.

It’s all about the attitude.

This moment meant a lot to me. So don’t write me something nasty about pastor Joel. I don’t care if you don’t like him. Be happy that I got a message in due season about my attitude, and it helped me.

  1. I agree with your Pastor, somethings need to get done in spite of our wishes. You shouldn’t beat yourself for your mistakes, they happen so we can learn from them. Remember the quote that you like in my post, and remember your WORTH is above anything else. Hugs to you my dear friend!
