Interesting question. <br />
<br />
Really the entire day belongs to me.<br />
I have the choice to go to work, to walk the dog, to take out the trash.<br />
I'm not incarcerated so the entire 24 hours of the day are mine to do as I wish.<br />
<br />
Now, the free time that I haven't scheduled anything is about 2-4 hours a day.

Oh, I like that perspective. You don't say: "I have to walk the dog", you say: "I choose to walk my dog over having him take a dump on my carpet". What others see as no choice at all, because they consider the alternative option unbearable, you still see as a choice that is up to you. You could let him ruin the carpet, but you chose not to. That takes a little stress out of a possibly stressful situation. It reminds you of being in charge. I like it.

Attitude really matters for me. A few years ago I decided to rework my mental dialogue from "I have to..." to "I get to...".
I get to walk the dog and spend time with him and enjoy the outdoors.
I get to go to work and earn money, maybe do something enjoyable when others aren't able to.
I get to take a moment and relax while I wait for the trains to cross the road instead of worrying about being late.

i like the first answer on there. True and GREAT perspective. <br />
However. I have made the choice to many times NOT to walk the dog take out the trash and not clean my house. <br />
Now i'm considering lighting a match! lol <br />
because i feel i have no time for myself. <br />
Sadly i'm a lazy person. So me doing anything is frustrating. Because when I do something i must give 200% (why can't i just half ars it) <br />
<br />
But I wake up - go to work there goes 9 1/2 hours. (yes i could choice not to work but then i'd have no place to go) TRUST ME i would rather choice to have my own time. <br />
so I get home and cater to my husband. ( choice again i don't mind this more so when i have my own time) <br />
make dinner clean up then clean somemore. Listen to hubby talk. Maybe before bed i can get 20 minutes in for me. But i haven't had ME time in such a long time I woudln't know what to do with myself. More times then not i just sleep.

All my choice ( family, work, play, I'll relative care, loving, cleaning...) let's work to make them all a conscious choice! life is that way for most. I believe that everything; all areas of our lives( for most) are the results of what we actively committ to each moment, whether it's conscious or not, positive or negative... We are choosing; results of our commitments.
