Do you ever find yourself ‘shoulding’ (not shitting?) 💩
I should be married by now.
I should be farther ahead in my career.
I should be living in a house by now.
These are three of the common ones that would be on replay each day running through my head.
Then I learned about expectations and realized everyday I was waking up with a hangover (and no it wasn’t from the 1 glass of wine🍷 I drank the night before 🤣.)
It was an expectation hangover as @christinehassler calls it.
I kept putting these unrealistic pressures on myself to be at certain places in my life because my friends were or other “successful” people I knew had already reached these points.
So what shifted?
I realized there is no timeline or agenda. My body is on a journey so what is the rush, I mean really?
It can be easy to compare yourself to where others are at in this thing we call life. Instead of comparing, I encourage you to get curious. Release the expectation and ask yourself what this rush or feeling of fitting into a mold is trying to teach you.
Comment below with filling in the blank.
I should ____________.
Now, go write that down on a piece of paper and recycle it into Mother Nature. 🌍
She’s got yo back babe ✨💕
