“Should” is a very heavy word.
We tell ourselves we should do this or we should do that.
When we hear that word, we often feel a twinge discomfort in our bodies. Something doesn’t sit quite right.
The reason? Our mind-driven “should” is trying to take control of our true desires.
Many of us are conditioned to be good girls and good boys; to play our part and do what we ought to do.
But when that conditioning comes into conflict with our real selves, it feels bad.
And, as we know, feeling bad is a sign that we are out of alignment.
So next time you hear yourself saying “should”, maybe question that thought: Is that really what you want to do?
Maybe instead do what makes you feel better.
And you know what’s funny about all this? Once you live in better-feeling place, you do what you should do anyway – from the heart.
Just don’t let “should” be the boss of you!
