Queen of Your Own Life

Lighten Your Load

Would've, Should've, Could've

She took a deep breath and let go of the would’ve, should’ve, could’ves that had been weighing her down. She smiled at how light she felt without them. ~ Queenisms™

We sometimes don’t realize just how heavy a load we are carrying around until we set it down. What would happen if you set down every thought about what you could have done, might have said, should have accomplished? Can you image how light and carefree you might feel? It’s possible, but it may take practice. Whenever these words or thoughts come up, stop what you’re doing and say, out loud:  “I’m rejecting these old ways of thinking. I did the best I could with what I knew at the time. I will not remain a prisoner of a past action, word or decision. I release these unhelpful thoughts and beliefs. They are no longer useful.”

Once you’ve rejected these outdated expectations of yourself, do not let them creep back into your life. Stand guard and shut them down the moment they pop up. Do not allow them to embed themselves into your life again.
