"Get to..."

Think of every single thing that you "have to" do to get through a day as things you "get to" do... before your turn is over.  Notes from the Universe by Mike Dooley.
This quote jolted me for several reasons.  The first is "every single thing..."  Not just stuff we like, not just good stuff, but everything!  It's all good.  The second is the reminder of "get to" rather than "have to."  We always have a choice, so everything that we do is something we've selected to be part of our day, so yes, it's always a "get to," never a "have to." The third jolt is in the phrase "before your turn is over."  What a great way to look at life, eternal life, that is--it's all a very long game, and each lifetime here on earth is our turn at the "earth game."  Truly I think the reason so many folks love sports, i.e. games, is that we know on some level that all of creation, eternally, is a game, and we are created and born to earth to play.
Let's lighten up, and not take things so seriously!
Livin' joy!
