We live in a world where we're constantly "doing", rather than "be-ing". We're constantly struggling to get to where we want to be, and "hustling" to reach our goals.
We tend to run around doing things alllll day. As soon as we wake up, we ask "what should I do today"?
The world "should" can be a sneaky one. "Should" implies that it's something we MUST do.
Dictionary.com's definition of "should" is
"used to indicate obligation, duty, or correctness, typically when criticizing someone's actions."
If you closely look at the word should, it comes from a place of duty, or being dutiful. We often judge ourselves if we don't do what we feel like we "should".
But what if we started living life from a place of just Being?
What if we woke up and asked ourselves,
"what would love inspire me to do today?"
Inspired action feels a lot better than "I should".
In fact, the word "inspiration" comes from "in-spirit".
When we're inspired, it comes from our spirit; our soul. It is our divinely purposed soul's calling.
What are you trying to push, to force, to control, to struggle with?
And on the other hand, what's pulling you in?
Follow what draws you in, what pulls you in. And allow life to lead you into the direction of your inspiration, your passion; the ZEST of life!
So tell me, what would love inspire you to do today? I'd love to hear.
