It’s funny how that works though. At the start of the month I wrote down intentions to let go of force and embrace more flow.
Going in to this weekend, I had high hopes and big plans. Well, not really big plans, but things I was looking forward to like my hair appointment and date night.
And then, neither one of them happened.
It had been snowing all weekend and not worth the half hour drive to my stylist. She works in a small town south of the city. I love the extra “me time,” and mountain views, the commute provides me. Either way, stormy highways were not worth the risk this week. And I decided my roots (and spending account) could wait a couple weeks...
As for date night, on top of the weather, Matthew’s back wasn’t well and we have a weekend getaway planned for mid-month. As much as I was craving dinner at Anju, our night out could wait too.
It made this weekend a little more dull but it was the perfect example of swapping force for flow.
We flowed with what came our way.
This meant slowing down and simply being together as a family. (Another intention I set for this month.)
Plus I finally got to work on some office and tax organization which is oh-so-easy to put off but feels oh-so-good to make progress with.
I wanted to share this post because at times, flow might not feel good. If we are longing for something, it can be hard to flow, yet it robs us of being present. When we can be okay in the flow, and okay in the present, we can be truly happy.
Then, things often come full circle flowing more of what we are wanting or needing in our life.
When I was feeling stuck this weekend, for example on missing out on one-on-one time with Matthew, I had to let it go and trust our time would come. When I allowed that to happen, today, some alone time flowed in to my naptime break and we finally got to chat about some things that had been put off. It gave me such relief to get the connection and time I had been craving! And more importantly because it flowed and was not forced.
I know not everyone likes reading these posts as much as say family updates... but I think it’s so important to share. Creating space for moments like these is what makes our life great! We can all welcome more flow in our lives and trust that good things will come :)
Hope you are all having a lovely week.
