"You know what we get to do today Brooks? We get to play baseball!" This line was from the movie the rookie. Its a true story about a 40-year-old dad, Jim Morris, that once was a major league prospect but now has been able to hop back into the game as a relief pitcher for the minor leagues. He is good but is teetering on whether he should stay or whether he should give it up. He had to leave his wife and kids, he is older than everyone, he has to travel all over, etc, etc. After a night at the bar where he was continuing to think about hanging it up, he watched a little league game and was reinspired about the love he had for the game when he was a kid. He saw the love in the kids' eyes. They were just stoked to be there and playing! He came back to his games with a renewed inspiration and eventually was called up to the major league. It's a good movie. But what I liked most about it was that moment where he remembered the love he had for the game. He lost it thinking he HAD to play. He forgot that he GOT to play. We all get caught up in this. When we HAVE to do something, then its usually a chore, a pain in the ass, no matter what it is. When we GET to do something then its a privilege or something more like fun! Think of all the things you HAVE to do in your day. What if you switched it to all the things you GET to do? Does the perspective change at all? At the core its either a positive or a negative view but it very difficult to not be happy if you get to something you want to do. Your job? You GET to go and do the things you do at your job. I GET to go and help people become better physical versions of themselves. Your family? You get to see your kids play their games and support them or shout for them as they dance, or dream up some imaginary land where you get to play with them. I know these times are EXTREMELY important for me. Your bills? You GET to have these services to make your life better, easier or more comfortable. I know I'm pretty happy with the hot showers in the morning or being able to drive into town every day. Life can always find ways to bring you down but if you GET to all these things then at least it's a MUCH more enjoyable time. Just think how bad things would be if you didn't even have the option or the opportunity. I'll take those things I GET to do:)
