Watch your language!

"Great day!" I said enthusiastically to a staff member coming back from a break as I was heading out to an appointment.

"Too good to be stuck inside" they grumbled.

"Don't then" I said. "I have to" was their reply.

I told them they actually didn't have to, they could choose to either go back, or stay outside. I explained they would have to deal with the consequences of not going back, but it was important that they knew they have a choice.

Whenever I hear myself say "I have to ..." I remind myself that I always have a choice.

Having choices creates empowerment over our lives!
