One word that I have dropped from my life is ‘should’…there is nothing natural about this word….

The minute you say the word ‘should’ there is pressure; try it and see. I should do this, do that, say this, say that, be there, be that ….. the list is endless and there is pressure in every one of these instances. There is nothing natural about ‘should’.

I have changed ‘should’ to ‘will’; I will do this, do that, say this, say that, be there, be that.

Nothing happens by accident and life flows naturally. In flowing naturally with it the minute we say the word ‘should’ to ourselves or others then we are hampering the flow.

    So very well put! I had not thought of it, but your post so aptly points it out: the very concept of “should” is not natural. After I read your post, I thought for a moment about all other living beings.. I cannot think of another being that operates in terms of “should”. Guilt trips are the burden of “should”; and only we humanoids are plagued by such. Great post! I got a lot out of it!!


I love to hear from you and having different perspectives are what this is all feel free to let me know what you think.....
