Be like water, flow through life with little resistance.
I’ve resisted so much in my life. When I felt unsettled in my career, I talked myself out of it. When I knew my time in NYC was up, I hung on for dear life for another couple years. I’ve resisted everything from having difficult conversations, both with myself and others, to the little things like getting up early enough to get my ass to the gym (snooze buttons should be renamed resistance buttons).
Resistance creates a lot of unnecessary stress in our lives. When you resist reality, your emotions, and acting on what feels right, you create a type of internal pain and suffering. Instead of holding onto what you think should happen, or what you think you should feel, release the white knuckle grip and go with the flow.
Water adapts to the circumstances it’s given. But it’s still water. It remains true to its form without putting up a fight. 🌊
Life by Design was born out of a need for my own self-healing after decades of unresolved illness. It wasn’t until finding the courage to look within that I discovered it was my own belief system holding me back from experiencing a truly thriving life. We all have access to that thriving life. We just need to rediscover our power and ignite the healing-self. Only then can we unapologetically live a life by our own design.
