THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SHOULD AND COULD IS A CONSCIOUS CHOICE



I been rather busy and I seem to get tired easier lately. Well busy is usual for me but tired is rather unsettling... So much so that I sit at the computer to check blogs with the intention of posting on my blog but by the time I'm through posting comments on those blogs who faithfully leave comments  on mine, I'm too tired to even bother. I think that I should post and I should comment on everyone 's post and I feel guilty when I don't.  Should do this and should do that seems to be my mantra these days.
My plans also seems to get side tracked by others demands or needs.

I could feel more at peace with myself and the world if I didn't feel that I should do these things.... So I'm making a conscious decision to make a choice. Instead of thinking that I should, I'll be thinking that I could. This gives me a choice of what I can do freely. I'm sure that I would feel a whole lot less guilty.
So no more should and more could. I'm starting to feel like that little engine that said, I think I can, I think I can, or in my case, I think I could, I think I could. But what about feeding the calves? I have to... Where's the could in that? lol...

How about you, do you often feel that you should do something and then feel guilty because you are just either too busy or tired to do what you had intended to do?

Today is a Civic Holiday and for us it's New Brunswick Day. So Happy New Brunswick Day to my New Brunswick friend.
