I Should



Seems to be the word of the day. And there are lots of "should do's " on my list
  • I should eat better
  • I should walk more
  • I should clean my house
  • I should call friends and family more
  • I should, I should, I should
But sometimes, all those "should do's" make me feel inadequate. And who needs to feel like that?

So I'm making a new list! I should...
  • listen to more music
  • dance in the dining room
  • eat a piece of chocolate every day
  • only read books that make me happy
  • play with Chloe in the yard
  • take a bubble bath
  • buy a new notebook
  • bake when I feel like it (and then give it away)
  • watch Hallmark movies without guilt
  • take a walk with no destination or motive
  • sit outside and watch the neighborhood
  • order takeout
  • eat ice cream 
  • buy flowers (or plants) for me
What's on your "should do" list? Maybe I can add it to mine!


  1. That's a fabulous list...sounds like a pretty great checklist for an awesome weekend!

  2. I like your new list of shoulds
    ... drink a cup of tea...
    ...take a nap...

  3. Love the new spin to your shoulds.
    My additions: more
    ... savor the sights of the season
    ... enjoy sunrises (if I am up) and sunsets

  4. You're so right about the punitive nature of "should" - except for when it allows us to grow and when it gives joy or strength. I think then it turns to "shall!" I shall make a little time each day to do a thing which brings me joy. I love bake "when I feel like it" on your list!

  5. I love your new list. The first one is too much like my own. Here are my additions to your list.
    I should:
    sleep in on the weekends
    buy flowers for myself

  6. Love the new additions to my list! I'm going to add them to my notebook!

  7. I love this list! I think I would add notice something in nature everyday , make a stranger smile
