“When I let go of what I am,
I become what I might be.”
You are stuck in the past… whether that past belief brought you success or feeling of comfort… the fact remains that LIFE CHANGES FAST… and WE ALL HAVE TO ADAPT quickly with the right reason. If not, we become obsolete in thinking and feel odd… or we lose the idea, product, business or the person who is really perfect for the company, the market… or the person for you.
Sometimes, it’s just too much pride to take back a stand that’s proven wrong that stops us to shift to what is better and after all — MORE RIGHT… and move forward to progress.
Life is tough, we all know that. By wise examples around us, the best way to deal with it is to BE PRESENT in the NOW.. and LET LIFE FLOW as it unfolds and deal around it. But let’s not throw caution to the wind. Take calculating steps. Study the risks versus the returns. BE OPEN.
Like water, try handling the obstacle or new with blissful surrender, flow around it gently and not resist or fight it. We don’t have to resent the new or obstacle — or take it personally with anger. We can simply work with the new or the obstacle; and adapt its path that is leading us somewhere — to GROW.
The operative words here are….. ADAPT… FLEX… BEND… ADJUST…
If you remain solid on something and there is a problem, a deviation or an obstacle, you can hit head-on collision. With yourself. And LIFE. Why not try… change that solid stand into open thoughts.. gentle words…and fluid actions. The wisdom of the WATER allows us to take life with greater joy.
Close your eyes now….. let your thoughts just flow… drift away… empty out… Be still… and feel the NOW within you.
Just GO WITH THE FLOW… and life will naturally flow on its own to your path with the least effort. You will find genuine joy and peace.
I wish you happy fluid thoughts today that make you smile with endless DELIGHT!
