Bills. A to-do list or “Honey-Do” list. A workout, a dentist appointment, or an extra serving of vegetables you don’t feel like eating. There are always things we’re not going to want to do. But what if you could change your mindset so that you look forward to these things and see them as blessings, instead of dreading them?
When we were kids, if we asked why we had to do something, you may have heard “Because I said so!” Let’s make another simple option – how about “because I can?” Check out this video I made several months ago:
It may be easier to feel blessed on a balcony on Manhattan Beach, but it doesn’t have to be! Mindset is key, and you don’t have to be in paradise physically to feel like you are mentally!
Not excited to pay a bill? Remember that you are blessed to have the funds to do so (not everyone can afford to pay their bills), a job that provides those funds, and whatever goods or services the bill is for!
Not excited to wash the dishes? How blessed are you to have access to clean water? Good food to eat? Loved ones to eat it with? Able hands to do the cleaning?
Dreading that workout this morning/evening? Aren’t you glad that you have a body that works that you can move? Aren’t you happy that you have taken charge of your life and your health?
These obligations we have are often things we take for granted! It’s all about mindset! I found this very fascinating as a little dose of perspective:
How blessed are you feeling right about now?
Remember: the next time you don’t feel like working out, getting an oil change for your car, washing your floors, or doing a project for work: Do it because you can!
What is the last time you were able to turn a burden into a blessing? What’s something you should be thankful for that you dread? How has changing your mindset changed your life? Comment below!
