What’s on your plate today? Job responsibilities. Carpools and cooking. Errands, housework, and laundry. Phone calls to return and bills to pay. A word count goal to reach. Maybe even an appointment with a dusty treadmill?
At first glance, my list looks daunting. It all needs to get done. Somehow. And it will involve a lot of effort.
Sound like fun? Not really.
The reality is that life is hard and full of responsibilities or obligations. But, if I’m thankful for the opportunities I have, I can face my list with a happy heart instead of grumbling. It’s my choice.
By shifting my focus to the importance of the opportunity, I can regain my excitement and turn the chore into a celebration.
What about you? Do you view life’s responsibilities as a celebration or a chore? Would it make a difference?
