It’s Better To Go With The Flow (#98)

Making a plan is important but when our expectations and ideas of he future are so rigid, it will only lead to disappointment. Sometimes, going with the flow and enjoying the present situation is the best thing we can do for ourselves. Use gratitude to ground yourself in the present and find what works best for you.


Today I’m grateful for…

  3. Campfire stories
  4. Halloween decorations with my dad
  5. A good hike and a well marked trail
  6. Learning new things
  7. Friendly puppies and animals
  8. The evergreen trees on the west coast
  9. Patience and a few deep breaths
