Go With The Flow

Are you going with the flow?  Or are you meticulously trying to control who, what, where, when and how of your life?  I’m an admitted control freak.  I make multiple lists and contingency plans, checking and double checking, thinking and rethinking…dare I say over-thinking even the simplest of decisions.  They say the first step in recovery is to acknowledge you have a problem. Well, I’ve been working on letting go and going with the flow for a few years now, and I’m happy to report there is a certain ease to my life now.  

Going with the natural flow of my life, listening to my gut versus resisting my intuition has unearthed remarkable opportunities that I would not have imagined a few years ago.  Of course, there are times where control is needed, but I’m convinced it’s not half as much as we think. And at first, it wasn’t easy letting go.  The first few times I recall the hair standing up on the back of my neck, and the voice in my head saying “See? I told you!” when things didn’t go the way I thought they should go.  But no one died.  No one got hurt. Everything turned out just fine.

Look for those opportunities where you can stop controlling things and let the wind guide you toward living life with more ease, propelling you toward your dreams.

  1. This hits home with me. For the past few weeks I have been talking to myself about controlling situations that are literally out of my control. If I tried to sway the outcome to one I desired, it only made things worse. A true test of mettle is one of letting go. Being able to accept a situation, a circumstance for what it is and nothing more has been a challenge for me. But I’m working on not controlling it by undertaking the process of analysis, digging deep as to the reasons for my actions, either completed or thinking about doing. Surprisingly enough, that step has lessened overwhelm and a few limiting beliefs!
    Great post, Toi!
    Dream On!
