The word ANYTHING is defined as: in any degree, to any extent, in any way, at all.
Have you ever wanted something so badly that you say you’d do ANYTHING for it? Maybe a promotion at work, a new pair of boots, or a Hawaiian vacation. As a mom,
some days every day I’d do pretty much anything for an extra hour of sleep or being able to drink an entire cup of coffee while it’s still hot.
But when you really consider the nitty, gritty of the word anything, what people actually mean is, “anything within reason,” or “anything I deem appropriate.” They don’t really mean ANYTHING.
