We all have days when we are faced with chores, errands or responsibilities we don't want to do. At times like these, it's easy to get into a bad mood as we tackle these tasks. However, given the fact that our bad mood will not change the fact that we still have to do these things, and will most likely make things worse, we could also try to shift our attitude. It is not about what we do, but how we do it that makes the difference in our lives.
When facing something that's really hard, look for the positives that will arise out of completing the task, whether it's doing taxes, paying bills or cleaning the house. In truth, most of the chores we don't like doing are intimately intertwined with our blessings. Remember this and feel gratitude, which will make the whole experience much easier. Paying taxes means we are receiving an income. Paying bills can mean we have a warm home in which to live. Cleaning the house reminds us we have a home and a roof over our head.
We can transform any task from a burden to a necessary aspect of caring for something we love. Just shift perspective, and the attitude will follow.
