Life is not about shoulds.
“I should lose this weight.” “I should get a ‘grown-up’ job.” “I should follow the rules.”
Follow the rules!? Who’s rules are these, anyway? These
rules shoulds were instituted by the zillions of subcultures of our lives: family, work, school, media, society, and on and on and onnnnnnnnn. We buy in to these shoulds, and we treat them like gospel truth.
Guess what?? THEY. ARE. NOT.
Real, genuine, satisfying, connected living is NOT about shoulds. Real life and the authentic, joyful living of it is about what lives deep inside you. YOUR life is about those things that truly make your heart come alive and cause your soul to sing.
Focus on those things, my friends, and give yourself permission to LET GO of the rest.
