That is such a dirty word… Can anyone tell me a positive use for the words “supposed to”? … Perhaps one of you will be able to come up with it but in my head – all it means is expectation.duty.must.obligation.law.
I am supposed to
All of those are great things! But I’m “supposed” to? … I get bogged down in what I’m supposed to do… a list of tasks and “to dos” that my heart fails to feel the whimsy in doing things because I love to do them.
and THEN…. [and where this post originated from] is when I tell myself all of the things I was suppose to have lined up by the time I turned 30 and that’s a lot to get done in 11 months. I am who I am because I was created this way – knit together in my mother’s womb – handmade with love – I’m not “supposed to” be anything… but me.
So can we eliminate that word from our vocab? Can we just get rid of it? I have been thinking about it for days and I honestly can’t think of how I would use it in a positive way.
I don’t want to “supposed to” do anything [that makes sense]. I want to do it out of love and whimsy.
I want to spend time with my husband & go to arcades & book stores & coffee shops & pizza parlors… cause I’m supposed to?
