must vs. can...

Must vs. Can... / via Oh Joy!

This year, I have been all in the mind set of being in control of my own destiny...worrying less what other people think, having a more positive attitude about all areas of life, and not letting fear get in the way. One simple way that I tell myself and others to do this is to change the way you work thoughts or sentences that usually include the word "MUST". For example...

I MUST be a good mom.

I MUST go to work to provide for my family.

I MUST accomplish all my goals.

Now change the MUST to CAN...

I CAN be a good mom.

I CAN go to work to provide for my family.

I CAN accomplish all my goals.

Not only does it sounds more positive (and not draining), but it sounds like something you have the power to decide how those things happen in the way that makes the most sense for you.

Have a great weekend guys! Not cause you MUST but because you CAN have one ;)
