Surrender To The Flow?....

Hello my positive thinking friends!

Today I'd like to explain what my blog title is all about. I've been getting a few comments asking me what "surrender to the flow" actually means and how it can be applied to daily life. Well, there's no real secret here. The term "surrender to the flow" simply means going WITH the grain of life, not against it. It doesn't imply you should accept negativity nor should you let people walk all over you. It means that, although things don't always work out the way we'd like(ie. promotion or the loan approval)accept the reality of what has happened. Instead of struggling in the wake, understand that what is happening IS happening and theres not much you can do stuck and arguing about it. So..... Instead of getting hurt, feet-stomping angry, and over-thinking the matter, surrender to it. Understand that it happened, and move on to the next step. Trust that things will get better. A positive outlook gets positive outcomes every time!

Life is hard.... for all of us! It's not what happens to us in life, but how we deal with it :) Always remember that.

There are times when you need to understand that unless you're willing to put your foot down and make an attempt to change something, nothing will change at all.

Its all about "dealing with it". Stress causes 99% of the problems. So avoid stress and you'll avoid 99% of the problems :D

gman said...

glad you cleared that up :D

animestan said...

Ya, always remember there are multiple ways of dealing with anything.

I think that's very true. The way you look at life, reflects the way life turns out.

The Dawg said...

...Or was it the other way around? :P

Try to surrender to the flow all the time, doesn't always work.

Yeah whatever bad happens there is almost always something good that is happening. you just gotta ignore the bad, and let in the good.

Ken said...

awesome picture man

Catherine said...

Ohh..That makes sense. I figured it meant that, but I also saw it in terms of my personal philosophy: trying to find the silver lining in every situation, but especially the bad ones.
Great post, bud!

I have to admit, a lot of times when life throws up a road block, my first reaction is to be pissed. That's part of my 'getting over it' process.

ed said...

surrender has a negative connotation though

In my life, in regards to the times and moments passed and incoming I have two views
Everything behind be was meant to happen and for that I am here. Past flows out of the present moment and that is why I say I am sponsored by Destiny.
As for the future, the best way to predict it is to create it.

life is hard only because of people

Empty said...

hehe, true what dalexus said.

btw, here's a anti- yours: 'only dead fish go with the flow'. :D But it speaks for different matters methinks.

Really nice picture to accompany this post. It's fine to roll with the punches, and live life as it happens, but it's always nice to give it a little push in the direction you want life to go.

I like that attitude, it is similar to mine! This also reminds me that I might have to make an explanatory post about my own blog's title at some point... (;;^_^)7

Chris Hashemi said...

Cool... although I think I've been "going with the flow" a little too much. I need to force myself into some uncomfortable situation & challenges because I'm getting lazy.
