Change is the Only Constant…”Go With the Flow!”

Change-Is-the-Only-ConstantThere is so much change and unpredictability in life, change is the only constant!  If we get upset and frazzled at every little thing that doesn’t go as planned, we will become a tense ball of stress.  We need to breathe, let go, and “go with the flow”.  When we hold on tight and try to control all circumstances and outcomes, we are not living life.  Part of living life is taking what comes our way and finding the good in it, making an adventure out of it, moving to the groove, learning from it all!

Planning is good, don’t get me wrong…but as we  all know,  not everything goes as planned.  So, in light of this, we need to go easy on ourselves, on others, and on circumstances.  If something goes wrong and we get angry and stressed about it, we affect so many people (including ourselves) and things around us.  No good comes from it.  We will repel others and make matters worse.  It’s like trying to row upstream…it is exhausting and it doesn’t work very well.

On the other hand, if we have a happy-go-lucky attitude, people (including ourselves) will feel a relief of sorts and move on with a positive attitude and outlook.  It also makes it easier to have a good attitude the next time something goes awry. Practice makes perfect!

Remember also, when things go a different way than you expect, to ask yourself, “Will this matter a year from now?”  more times than not the answer is a happy “NO!”.
