I came into see Brit one day and she immediately knew something was going on. She asked what was wrong and I gave her the answer we all give, “I just have a lot to do and no time to do it.”
She laughed and simply said, “Everybody has things to do, everybody is busy. Well, except me, I just have to lay here.”
It was then we started talking and she said your “have to” has to match your “want to”. I can’t say it as well as she did, but it is basically this:
There are things you want to do in life and things you don’t. Those things you don’t are usually the things that you have to get done. Take weeding for example. Everybody that has a garden or even just flowers in a bed has to weed them. You want to enjoy the vegetables or the pretty flowers, but you have to weed it for that to happen. Nobody lets the ugly take over the pretty because you know what it's going to look like in the end. Same with life. There is no point in dreading what has to be done, or you’ll never get to the part you wanted. Don’t dread Mondays, you need Mondays to help you to get to Fridays. It has to happen, it’s going to happen, so why dread it? If you want some pity party about having to pay all these bills, remember you wanted to have that cell phone so you need to pay that bill to use it. It’s all just part of the process, get your have to done so that your want to gets here quicker.
I think that was just her little story, or way of saying Stop Bitching about it and just do it, but it was a good way of doing it anyway. We all have our want to and our have to, I guess we just need to make our have to as important as our want to and it’ll all work out.
