Life doesn't always go our way. No matter how badly we may want something, sometimes it's just not the right thing for us or maybe the timing is off. When things get hard, we need to lean into the discomfort and explore our emotions, which are there to inform us.
Through our discomfort and struggles, we learn more about who we are, what we want and don't want, and what truly matters most in our life. As we get clear on these, we make adjustments and align our choices accordingly.
When we face challenges and obstacles, we need to know when to push through and fight for what we want, and when to let go and trust that things are happening exactly as they are meant to. Extending this kind of trust and stepping into the flow can be challenging. It takes discernment, practice, and patience.
We invite more ease and fulfillment into our life when we trust the flow ... knowing that our experiences are moving us along our path to where we are meant to be. Moving in flow with life doesn't mean we don't take action, though.
On the contrary.... we do take action. But before we act, we tune into our own voice, our inner guidance, our own heart. That, my friends, is where the magic happens.
Through it all, we must extend ourselves kindness, compassion, and grace.
And that is one of the ultimate acts of self-love.
