Feb 27, 2017 - Do you really have to? Are you feeling obligated to do certain things believing you have no choice? Do you find yourself saying, "I have to ...." as your reason for not doing other things you really want to be doing? Realize that for every "have to" today that you succumb to doing, there will be a "could have" tomorrow in what you wished you had done. Your life IS your life. How you choose to live each moment is your choice. When you embrace the power you have to choose, even though it may feel as though you cannot, you open the door to your ultimate possibilities becoming more real and reachable.
Take an MM&I Moment to make a list of all the different times you have recently said or believed you "have to." Now write your reasons why you believe you don't have a choice. Next, write what you believe might happen if you choose not to do what you believe you have to do. Finally, write what you would prefer to be doing instead of these different obligations that you don't even want to be doing. Decide now to release these have-to's once and for all. Let them go. Delegate them to someone else. Make someone else take responsibility. Decide it isn't necessary after all.

"Life is a sum of all your choices." - Albert Camus
Most important of all, choose to do something you want to do instead. Choose with conviction. Choose with confidence. Choose with gratitude that you really do have a choice.
