  1. Easy to suggest harder to follow, very wise words, I guess it’s a matter of learning to put the words into practice and to go against our natural instinct to resist the flow, rather than to just go with it, as it pulls us in the direction of it’s currents.

    • Angel, you are very right. It certainly is not a natural course for us to just go with. I have spent my life resisting. LOL. I like to do these type of posts for others to benefit from but also as a reminder to me… to cheer myself on when things pop up unexpectedly. I share my searching for knowledge. ♥
      I need to swing by your blog and catch up over there… I hope all is well for you and I love hearing from you. :)

    • Very true. This certainly does not pertain to all things. My sons abuse is a good example. It has never been acceptable to me that that happened and it never will be. I have had to learn how to move forward with what happened and I have learned to stop blaming myself for it. Accept “it”, no.
      The good somethings are certainly a nice change and I welcome them with open arms. LOL.

    • It certainly can… especially if those plans fall through. Sometimes it is hard for us though to release that control, but if we do, we will find life more enjoyable.

  2. that’s really a great quote and could even be like a motto as well. change can be one of the hardest especially if we see it and don’t want to accept it. eventually that “change” can be a great teacher for life.

  3. Exactly, Muse! I’ve learned: If I like the change, all is good and I can go with that. If I don’t like it and can’t ignore it, change it … if I can’t change it …put my big-girl panties on and just go through it, go with the flow. My stewing isn’t going to help anything, and I’d rather act, even if all that means is that I make a decision to just ‘go with it’ … lol. (I hope that made some sense, because I had to take another pain pill and I have fuzzy tongue and brain, hehehe.) xox

    • That made complete sense to me and I do very similar to what you do with change.
      It is better on us to go with the flow that resist if we can’t change it… otherwise we cause ourselves more unneeded suffering. ♥
