How things should be

This clock should have IV for the 4, not IIII, or should it?

This clock should have IV for the 4, not IIII, or should it?

I often battle with thoughts such as ‘this is how things should be’ and more so battle with thoughts such as ‘this is not how things should be’.

So, how should things be? What a horrible question when it comes down to it. Nothing should be any way or another, things are, simply, how they are. It is our preferences, our ideals that make us want things a certain way. This isn’t a bad thing, in and of itself. In fact, it is downright necessary to live. Food should be not poisonous, or we will die. Eat the wrong mushroom, berry or fish, for example, and you will die.

But a constant background of thoughts creating an ideal personal world of what it should be can very entrapping… We naturally become attached to these thoughts and they can consume us.  Sometimes these thoughts can make us strive for, and accomplish fantastic things. Sometimes they can do the opposite. But either way, they both ultimately restrict us.

  1. So very true, When we say this should be this way or that, we restrict it.. confining it to our own very limited ideals.. When in fact ALL things are possible… And once we alter our thoughts and understand there is no right way or wrong way, and allow ourselves to ‘Flow’ more with possibles, then we open up the way for miracles to happen…
    A famous quote I like is this
    “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”
    ― Albert Einstein…
    Things Do Happen… its not how things should be, but rather How we react to them and respond to them that counts…

    A thought provoking post Many thanks and I hope you are well
