Livin La Vida de Gratitude

Passing this on to you because that's what friends do when they stumble across something they love.

Instead of using the words "have to" I started using the words "get to".

Try it for a day and see just how much you'll appreciate the things you get to do every day.


I get to ______ (create this blog!)

I get to ______ (go to more education classes for myself and others)

I get to ______ (be a motivator)

I get to ______ (wake up in the morning)

I get to ______ (stumble out of bed and fumble to the kitchen)

I get to ______ (pour myself a cup of ambition)

Realize that not everyone GETS to do these things.

Someone in the world would love to do the things we get to do every single day. Things we do often take for granted. And sure, it seems silly to apply it to the things no one typically loves to do, like cleaning the same back salon counter 10 times a day, IYKYK, but I have an amazing job with an amazing work environment, and I would rather do that than clean the front counter at my old job. No. Thanks.

But even those things we get to do because we're lucky. Lucky to have the things in our life that create all that laundry; capes, towels and aprons, and all those messes to clean.

I'm telling ya...if you're ready to start living a life with a little more gratitude, start using the words "get to" instead of "have to," and I promise it will change the way you see life.

So I'll pose the question to you: What do you get to do today? We can't wait to hear what you GET to do at your next salon visit.

Talk soon!
