Going with the Flow of Life

Life ebbs and flows, just like the ocean. We have high tides and low tides. It is marvelous and gorgeous how life goes. Life gives you what you need when you need it too. I have learned this many times over. I am constantly reminded of going with the flow of life. 

Going with the flow and being observant

The tides flow and we should go with them, but we need to be observant of what’s going on around you. Since I am at the beach all the time, I need to be observant of the flows of the ocean. The ocean is a powerful force that can cause rip currents to take you out to sea, where you don’t want to be. Being aware of the ocean’s flow is important. It is the same thing with life.

We can easily get swept away into a situation that isn’t a good one. When the ebbs and flows of life bring you good or bad it is easy to overindulge or become too attached to the situation. This can take our judgment and good sight from us.

Experience life and Question

We want to experience life and live our best lives. It is key to a great and loving life. We do need to be aware of our inner voices and signs. You all know me by now, I have a questioner. I question everything all the time. It is what I do to understand the life around me. When I hear a voice in my soul telling me to be aware that there is a potential rip current ahead, I question and observe. 

Recently, I was talking with a guy. My soul told be watch out. So, as I talked to this guy for the last month, I questioned him to get to know how he thinks. I started to get more and more concerned about the guy, so I started asking questions about why he is a certain way. It gave me the answer, not just his responses. Responses can be deceiving, but if you combine actions, words, and responses, you can really see what the person is about.

Trust yourself

In the end, I stopped talking to him. Nothing happened, but between the responses, the words, and the actions, I decided he wasn’t worth my time. I didn’t want to see what was hiding beneath the words.

Trusting yourself is the most important part of going with the flow of life. When you feel danger may be near, use caution. When you feel danger closely approaching, turn the other way. When you feel safe, go for it. 

We can learn to read and listen to our warning signs. Sometimes they can be ignored like when I got robbed in Chile a few years ago. They aren’t foolproof. However, those experiences can be exactly what we need to find ourselves. 

Ebbs and Flows are good

We can learn so much from the ebbs and flows of life. It gives us the chance to see something different we might not have seen otherwise. Go with the flow, but be aware of the inner self.

Life is beautiful and amazing.
