We spend so much of our time and energy adhering to the “shoulds.” I should wake up earlier, I should read more to my kids, I should finish that house project, prepare better meals, be more organized and go to bed earlier. Is the word “should” ever followed by a task we actually want to do?
There are competing voices in my head. There are voices that say I can help people and voices that ask But what if I don’t? There are voices that say I have an important message to share and voices that say Why bother? Here’s the thing I’m pretty confident about when it comes to those voices—they will never stop competing for my attention.
