How To Dissolve Resistance in an Instant

blog | 1 comment

A few years back, I was running around like a maniac trying to get myself out the door on time for work. My husband asked me a question and I reacted by saying, “Not now. I HAVE to go to work!”

He gently put his hands on my shoulders, looked me square in the eyes, and replied, “No, babe. You GET to go to work.”

As much as I hate to admit it…he was right (as he so often is).

I was referring to the job I LOVE in a way that was making my morning WAY harder than it needed to be.

I was looking at my job as a hardship rather than the privilege it is.

I see women do this ALL of the time along the path to improved health:

“I HAVE to workout.”
“I HAVE to cook dinner.”
“I HAVE to plan ahead.”
“I HAVE to go to the store.”

Sound familiar?
Yeah, I thought it might.

But the reality is…

Having the option to:

eat foods that nourish you
move your body often and much throughout the day
drink clean water

… these are privileges not afforded to many.

How would your ability to care for yourself change if you started looking at the work involved as a GET TO rather than a HAVE TO?

Try it on today.

What have you got to lose?

When that moment comes (and it surely will) to resist the very thing you want to be doing for yourself to uplevel your health, change your “have to” into a “get to” and watch your resistance dissolve in an instant.
