Ease On Down the Road with Flow
Sometimes flow seems elusive. Especially when media is bombarded with images of people enraged by their current situations. And even when we temper the need for social media, the soundtrack in our own minds can be “what’s the use?” In our angst, the lyrics to Kansas’ “Dust in the Wind” can begin to sound all too familiar. There are, of course, choices. We can see change simply as something as a natural progression of our lives.
We change, because change is the only constant. Instead of resisting change, why not travel the golden path to flow? It sure beats the virtual superhighways charged with images that can shut down our own internal resources.
Surviving the Storm
When we approach a new path in our lives, we can feel trepidation. What is on the other side of the door? We might have a cyclone of emotions leaving us reeling with unchecked emotions. Change can cause a feeling of disorientation. There in our internal journey we have the ability to self-correct. And, it is free and available to each and every one of us 7/24. And that powerful resource is our attitude.
Recognizing the Resource of Gratitude
Once decide to look for the silver lining in a challenging day, or week, or year, we swing open the door of gratitude very wide and enter a technicolor world of Ozian proportions. We see possibilities. We note options. In short order, we decide to take a step on our very own yellow brick road. So what does this road look like? How we can access it? Does it require some special skill?
Don’t Carry Nothing That Might Be a Load
If we use journal writing to spill our fears onto a page, we gain courage to move forward with greater ease. One step at a time. One word at a time. And we have a place to count our blessings. In doing so, we begin to travel the path with a lighter spirit. A shift in mindset places our feet firmly on the road to flow.
Decide to step through your black and white (all or nothing) thinking. Open the door to flow. How? Consciously begin to curate what you are grateful for in a journal, notebook, or legal pad. Continue to add to it daily. See if it helps you to be more creative even with a few short steps on the road.
