Just Go With It

This week's present moment reminder.

I agree, it’s hard to accept some moments when they are downright horrible, but fighting against those times gets you nowhere. I think it’s better to just go with it. “This too will pass,” is a saying that’s been around for a long time and one my grandmother used to say. It’s a good saying and one maybe we should keep in mind when life gets tough.

In accepting the moment as it is you are surrendering–not giving up, there is a difference. Surrendering is letting go of having to control every little thing in your life. You are learning to flow through your life so you can enjoy all of it fully.

Every day I am reminded how precious life is and how short it can be. So I take the good with the bad–the cold rainy days with the glorious sunny warm days and treat them equally. After all, they are both part of my life and I own them.

Bad things come, but they also go, and then good things take their place. Don’t use up all your energy fighting those bad moments. Just go with it and the good moments will come.

This is your life so be completely present.

  1. I’ll always remember going through one of the most horrendous times of my life Michele…and now when I look back…it is the greatest blessing. It unraveled what had been blocking my light…but to find that light, I needed to ‘see’ why. That understanding is the game changer and showed me what ‘going with the flow’ truly was.
    Great post my friend, and I am currently just watching the rain fall…and now ‘seeing’ the blessing in such a simple thing 😀 ❤

  2. Thank you, my friend 🙂 It’s so true, Mark that sometimes we have to go through those horrible times–flowing through them the best we can in order to find the light in our lives once again. I am currently watching the sun finally come out, but I accepted the rain too.

    So very true. There is nothing new under the sun. Many people went through the same tests and trials, not only us. Just keep going and know – everything will work out in the end.

  4. I agree with you, Inese. You just have to keep going and things will get better.

  5. So difficult to ‘live in the moment’…be present and yet, I agree that is what is needed…especially when we can avoid worries, anger, etc.
    hugs

  6. It really is hard to live in the difficult moments for sure. But I know from experience that’s when you need to do just that. When I look back at the times I fought so hard against whatever bad things were happening in my life the fighting just made it worse. Letting go would have been so much better. Many hugs to you, Elizabeth 🙂

    What a wonderful reminder to be present to whatever shows up. By accepting it, we allow it to pass. I like to think of emotions as energy… always moving and transforming. Thanks Michele 💛

    • I really love what you said, Val about being present to whatever shows up. It is so true that when you accept whatever shows up you allow it to pass. That sure is something to always remember. Thank you so much!

  8. I love reading your posts, Michele. They are always so uplifting and inspiring…a good moment that I am happy to go with.

    • What a wonderful compliment, Elysha! I appreciate your kind words of encouragement 🙂 In this world of so much negativity, I try very hard to spread positive feelings, and it’s good to know that I am doing that .

    My mother had the same saying:). I still use it, even though she is no longer around to say it. Surrender is the first step toward change, toward the better. Took me a long time to learn that.

    • Hi, Kristine 🙂 It took me a very long time to learn that too. I agree with you that surrender is the first step toward change. It has made a big difference in my life and how I approach everything.
