Whose Should’s Run Your Life?

Take a moment. Examine whose should’s are running your life. Are the things you tell yourself you need to be doing true expressions of your legitimate goals, responsibilities, and commitments? ~ Beattie, Melody. More Language of Letting Go: 366 New Daily Meditations (Hazelden Meditation Series) (p. 353).

What should you be doing?
Who said you should?
Under what authority are you acting?
What are you doing?
What emotions are close to the surface?
Is what you’re doing necessary?
Will it take you where you want to be?
Is it hard to turn where you feel you should?
Are you walking the path of your heart?
