Sometimes I struggle between doing what I should be doing and what I need to be doing. Surprisingly there is a difference.
I should do the dishes.
I need to spend time with my husband.
I should fold the laundry.
I need to write my masters paper.
I should prep for school.
I need to go to be early.
Ultimately we decide what we should and need to do. Maybe yours are the opposite of mine. There is always something to do. Deciding it’s necessity in line with your happiness is what determines if it is a should or a need.
Pause. Breathe. Feel. Assess. Act.
