Go With The Flow
"The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance." - Alan Watts.
What you can control, you will. But the things you can't, you have to let go. Surrendering to the flow is the only option sometimes. If you struggle with letting go, here are some things you can do:
- Remember that everything is for the greater good: We can only connect the dots looking backward. We end up seeing that life is beating us up and not working in our favor. But it is working for us. Everything that's happening is for you to learn some lessons. Things will fall in place with time.
- Don't take life too seriously: Everything isn't going to last forever. Most things around us are impermanent. So, it's better to take it with a light heart!
- Avoid getting too locked in: Whatever plans you make, it won't always go your way. Be ready to improvise and make room for changes.
- Let go of the results: When your focus is on the destination, you may lose sight of the beautiful journey. Set your destination, and then shift your focus on the journey to get there. Learn to enjoy this process. You'll learn from the journey as you keep moving forward.
Learning to go with the flow is an essential lesson in the book of life. It helps you be one with life. Working with the flow gives you a sense of inner peace. But, there are certain points when we need to go against the flow to get what we want.
