Every day when you wake up ask yourself "what do you really, really, really want". You have to say really, really, really or you won't believe it. Elizabeth Gilbert

I love this quote by Elizabeth Gilbert.  It seems by asking yourself the repeated really really really it helps you to decipher between the "shoulds" of the ego and the wants of the spirit. It is tricky being able to distinguish between the two sometimes.  I don't know about you, but when I'm in "should land" my inner-childhood rebel makes an appearance. As a kid, my little rebel would  pretend she was too tired when Mom wanted me to clean my room or suddenly I had a tummy ache when it was time to do the dishes. Even as an adult,  that inner child becomes quite stubborn and finds the most creative ways to be in resistance and avoidance.   What do you do when you are in your "should land" ? It may be good to know so that you recognize when your in it and once your become aware of it you can choose to step out of it.  That's the good news!  I love happy endings. You?
