This week I had to stop, pause and notice how in life, flow is all around us.
Just like in our yoga practice where we work to find balance between effort and ease,
in life we work to find the BALANCE in the flow.
Sometimes the flow requires us to speed up a bit (more work load, the holidays, taking care of a loved one)
Sometimes, the flow requires us to slow down (fatigue, illness, stress)
My question for you is, do you go with the balance of flow or do you fight it?
Fighting the natural ebb and flow of life creates upset and discourse; you feel misaligned.
Think of that go, go, go hustle, and how pushing yourself too much leaves you drained and overwhelmed.
Conversely, can you be too lax, letting life pass you by? Think of the ever-present Netflix and chill syndrome. It too is a misalignment of the flow. Too much Netflix and chillin’ leaves you lethargic and unfocused.
So, I want you to think of the natural flow right now in your life. Know that next week through the end of the year it will shift a bit. Make the adjustment. Make sure you are finding the balance for yourself, however that looks.
GO WITH YOUR FLOW.
I saw a Facebook post the other day that stated, "Chapter 11 begins".
It’s true. We are about to close out 2018 in exactly 8 weeks.
My question for you is…do you need to let go of some things as this year comes to an end?
There may be some physical things that you are holding onto (just this weekend I did a serious clothing purge).
Maybe it’s a long held story you have about yourself...
Perhaps, it’s a role you use to have, but this year things have changed (hello to my empty nesters).
Maybe it’s a relationship...
Whatever it is, it is on us and up to us to let go of the things that are no longer working FOR US in our life.
How do we do that you might ask?
YOU. LET. IT. GO.
Is it really that easy?
It is if we allow it to be.
I will leave you with one of my favorite Zen proverbs…
Let go or be dragged.
