Don’t Force It

It’s all too tempting to think that we are in control of our own destiny. And while our lives are partially the result of choices we’ve made, we must accept that not everything will go according to plan.

If you’re anything like me, then this is difficult! Especially when society seems to reinforce the motto of “making things happen!” But in all honesty, forcing your life to be a certain way is draining and confusing. There’s a difference between forcing things to happen and preparing for opportunities so that when they come, you perform at your best. Just by pressing on towards your goals, you’ll find that things happen for you naturally — which is a relief.

It sounds cliché to go with the flow — but it’s better to do that than to tire yourself out while fighting against the current. You might as well enjoy the ride!

True. Things happen when they happen (when they're supposed to) and not a minute sooner. Thanks Erika.

We all realise that every day is different, some are good days , some are bad days. I think the statement going with the flow, means to cope with it. thanks

Seeing the end result, but not being frustrated or bent out of shape when we arrive in another manner than expected...
