X90: Are “Shoulds” Ruining Your Life? with Tricia Huffman

By July 15, 2022February 2nd, 2023No Comments

Do you keep shoulding all over yourself?

The more I reflect on the word “should”, the more I realize that I don’t need it at all.

The word is inherently negative. It’s an active form of self-criticism. Plus it immediately takes you out of the present moment. It either sheds light on something you feel obligated to do but feel bad that you’re not, or something you feel bad about not doing in the past.

The energy of words is a powerful force. And sometimes the way we speak about a problem, about ourselves, about other people is what holds the energy that either keeps us where we are or helps us move in another direction.

And sometimes, even something as simple as a change of words can be the catalyst for opening up to things we didn’t even realize was possible.

That’s what we’re talking about today. Our guest is Tricia Huffman, aka Your Joyologist. She is a mental health and mindset expert known for sharing real talk with heart, calling you to uncover and honor who YOU are.
