“Have to or To Have”


“Have to or To Have”

When you don’t want to do something, but there’s no way of getting around it, what’s left, but to plunge on through. If it’s a “have to” kind of thing, I can always change the word “have” to “choose.” It really does change the whole outlook on that something.

There’s a lot people I know right now, myself included, who are faced with some medical issue. I guess it has a lot to do with getting older. My Dad used to say, the older you get the more you have to go into the body shop for repairs, new parts and adjustments. Notice I use the words “have to.” I don’t like putting it that way because there’s always a choice to do, or not to do. No matter how unpleasant something is, it’s always up to us. No one is twisting our arm. When I hear myself say, I choose to have this done. Notice how the negative words “have to” becoming a positive reaction, “to have” actively changing the perception of the thought.

None of us desires to go through any kind of unpleasant repair, but when we make an informed decision, we are able to make a choice we can live with.

I've come to know myself as a unique individual expression of God. I love that there is only one me in all the world. I'm still learning, growing and experiencing all the wonders that this life has to teach me. I live, move, and breath in this shell of a body God has given me, and together we travel. He see's, hears, taste, smells and touches all that I experience through the individual personality that I am. I believe He exist in each one of us for the same purpose. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. I love to write and express the many thoughts that swim around in my head. I love to read. I'm a creative crafty kind of person. I love being in my garden. I've been working on my families genecology for 25 years. I think that about sums me up for now.
