This is something I want to let go…
I want to be occuppied with more pleasant pastimes than analysing my past behaviour or the possible outcome of a future step of mine that may not conform with the societal “norms” or with what one “should” be doing. What one “should” be striving for, what one “should” accomplish, what one “should” possess. I want to make my own rules. I want to define my own shoulds. No, actually I want to define my own wishes!
There is no one size fits all, not in terms of hobbies and not in terms of a healthy lifestyle. I want to stop listening to the shoulds and the norms, stop listening to the voice scanning my every move. I have my own heart whispering its longings to me. I want to follow it.
It will require work. It will require courage and perseverance.
And all I know is that it will all be worth it.
