But how do you silence the shoulds and listen to the voice that’s crouched inside of you, singing in a tune all its own? Here are a few things that help me.
Old habits die hard, however, and…well, we did not create our lanterns in time for the festival. Still, this project did make for a really fun family activity nearly on Thanksgiving Day, as we waited for the turkey to cook! We then got to the beautiful glowing centerpieces as we enjoyed our dessert that night. (My lantern is the image above!)
How many shoulds have you felt today? Each should is like a manacle, chaining you to a reality that isn’t your own.
There are so many things I could be doing… but how often do I just choose to do nothing? To just sit quietly on sofa and switch off.
