How the river flows

Sometimes the universe SO obviously wants me to go a specific direction...

But I resist, or I ignore all the cues being sent my direction.

Can you relate to this?

Lately, I’ve thought of my life as a flowing river. The body of the river is my heart-felt intention and what I desire to share with the world. The tributaries flowing into my river (or away from my river) are all the different aspects of my life: how I spend my time, my relationships, where I focus my energy...

I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the things that “drain” me. These things are the people, places and habits that take me away from my core intention and the natural flow of my life.

I’ve also spent a lot of time thinking about the things that help me gain momentum and voracity, that help me get stronger and flow faster... and sometimes, it’s the aspects of my life that I least expect, or I give very little attention.

Sometimes, I gotta just drop what I’ve been working-my-ass-off to accomplish in order to surrender to the inevitable, quite obvious flow of my life...

Swimming with the current is the key.

What do you think? What in your life flows with ease?

What’s surprisingly gaining momentum?

Is anything draining you that you can let go?
