I heard this saying recently and I found myself mumbling throughout the day trying it out for size. It actually DOES put things in perspective.
For instance, we are making our downstairs into an apartment for my Mom.
Tomorrow I GET TO haul furniture up 2 flights of stairs in 100 degree heat. Then I GET TO pick up a moving truck, go to Home Depot to buy appliances, cabinets, etc., bring them home and haul them down 2 flights of stairs in 100 degree heat.
See doesn't that sound better?
It does make you think about things a little differently though.
You should try it out.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
