Go With The Flow

We are where we need to be! Give yourself permission to breathe and go with the flow. Every step we make toward our goals is equally valuable.

The steps do not need to be big. The steps do not have to be made quickly. The steps do not even have to be made in succession. We can hopscotch…go up 2 then go back one. The steps simply need to be made.

Every movement we make gets to be at a pace that we get to choose. We have the power of choice and we get to decide how and what we wish to do every single moment.

Furthermore, the more we enjoy and savor the process, the greater the accomplishment will feel when we reach our ultimate goal. When we allow ourselves to move towards our goals and intentions at a pace we are most joyful, then we are more likely to see it completely through. It will be a commitment we can stick to and promise we can keep to ourselves.

When we do things in bliss, then we are more likely to continue to do them because they are fun, they bring us delight and they bring us a sense of accomplishment. A little goes a long way. Simply go with the flow. Follow the beat of your own heart, the rhythm and tempo is yours to choose.

Faith

 

Faith, what is it really? According to the dictionary faith is confidence or trust in a person, entity or thing, for example, faith in another’s ability. Faith is belief that is not based on proof.

C.S. Lewis expressed that faith is merely the virtue by which we hold to our reasoned ideas, despite our moods to the contrary.

In some scopes of thinking, faith is a conviction that something is; a determination to accomplish one’s goals; and/or a sense of joy deriving from both.

So, what is faith to me?

I perceive, comprehend and grasp the nature of faith to be a deep trust, a profound confidence and a relentless belief without the benefit of any proof.

I have faith in myself to carry out everything I plan to do to fulfill my new year goals, resolutions and intentions. I have faith in my family and friends, who will support my goals, resolutions and intentions. Faith is needed and desired to develop and nurture any relationship including and most importantly the relationship with our own selves. Faith is such a positive word and positive feeling.  As such, I humbly perceive faith to be closely related to love. Love and faith go together like milk and cookies.

Perhaps you could have one without the other but it would be a shallow experience; like having cookies without milk. Milk adds so much more to the cookie experience. Yes, I seem to have food on the brain, but that is because it makes a good illustration of love and faith; and, how the two go together.

I profoundly believe and trust my spouse. I have faith in him. I love him. Could I love my spouse without trusting him? It would only be a shallow form of love. Profound, unconditional love requires faith. Anyone who has been in more than one significant relationship knows when you do NOT have faith in your partner, your relationship is doomed.

So, along this line of thinking: if we do NOT have faith in ourselves, then our relationship with ourselves is in trouble. How can we repair that profound belief in ourselves? I propose that one great way is to KEEP those promises we make to ourselves, especially those promises that involve self-love and self-care like our new year resolutions, intentions and goals. Keep the faith and Happy New Year!
