Life is often compared to a meandering river, with its myriad of tempermants and obstacles. Sometimes the river is calm and peaceful, and sometimes it is turbulent and full of obstacles. Flow is the way the water dances around and overcomes obstacles in its way, while always moving forward, and we are a floating leaf along for the ride.
“Go with the flow.”
We’ve heard it so many times that we don’t even think twice to contemplate its meaning. Picture a river in your mind’s eye. Is it still? Is it rushing? Each river has its own unique and innate flow and if we pay close attention, we can feel its flow.
To go with the flow means to follow your heart, to dance through life, and to roll with the punches life throws at you.
