Y’all, I’m in a “should” spiral. I’m “should-ing” all over myself these days. What’s up with that? Do you know what I mean by this? The “should” spiral is when we get overwhelmed and start piling on all the guilt and shame of the mountain of things we think we SHOULD be doing or SHOULD have done.
I should be further along in life.
I should be spending more quality time with my son.
I should be finding the time to get my hair done.
I should be making more connections.
I should be back on track with my health regimen.
I should weigh less by now!
I should call (insert any various family member or friend), it has been a while.
I should clean this damn house.
I should clean out my car.
I should go buy me a new outfit!
I should meditate more often.
I should have kept up with my yoga routine. I was doing so well!
SHOULD SHOULD SHOULD SHOULD SHOULD!
Through the spiraling storm of my “should” thoughts, I hear a powerful Disney princess voice inside of me belt out, “LET IT GO, LET IT GO!”
We have enough pressure outside of ourselves, sisters, why do we pile on these things that we think we SHOULD be doing right now, right here, TODAY?! Let's all take a collective breath, clear our minds, and calm the hell down.
Today, I am breathing.
Today, I am doing what I can.
Today, I am a light for others.
Today…(cue the dramatics)…
My power flurries through the air into the ground My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast I'm never going back, the past is in the past!!!
Today, I am letting go. Won’t you join me?
