A couple of months ago I was out walking and stopped to watch this stream. I love the sound it makes as the water bubbles along. The flowing water makes me feel peaceful.
When we try to achieve something new, we are a lot like the water in this stream. We are running along, but probably not in a straight line. Rather, we will most likely follow a twisted path. A new opportunity may draw us in one direction, while a difficulty may cause us to rethink and go around another way. What I love about the stream is that the water always moves forward. All the bumping and splashing may lengthen the journey, but it also keeps the water fresh and clear of debris.
Is your resolution shaking you up a bit? Are you wondering if you are even on track? Remember that the twists and turns show that you are moving. Stagnant water doesn’t encounter diversions, but it doesn’t get anywhere either. So row downstream and be open to where it might take you.
