Having to or getting to
When you wake up in the morning, do you sigh at the thought of the things you 'have' to do that day or do you smile at the things you 'get' to do? How you approach something, how you feel about it and the energy you bring to it will ultimately impact whether you are gritting your teeth or enjoying the experience.

Saving things for best
Do you save things for best? Do you save clothes, candles, notebooks and more for best, and then never actually use them?
