But, I Don’t Want To

How many times have you said this or heard this phrase:  “but I don’t want to…”

  • eat my vegetables
  • do my homework
  • get up in the morning
  • go to bed early
  • put on clothes (I’ll wear my pajamas instead)
  • do the work that I don’t like to do
  • follow the rules
  • work out
  • drive in traffic
  • be cold
  • be mature
  • be the responsible one
  • wear that dress/suit/stockings/hat/gloves/scarf
  • pay taxes
  • show up on time to something that will take a long time and be annoying
  • write thank you notes (I said thank you…and I was sincere)
  • clear the table
  • be stressed
  • wear uncomfortable shoes
  • stay home instead of go away
  • eat in instead of going out

It is sometimes beyond our control and even if you really want to say, but I don’t want to… You do it. You do it because you are responsible, you are trustworthy, you are dedicated and maybe, just because you are the parent and you have to get up in the middle of the night to help your sick child/parent/spouse feel better.
