Life, it flows like a river…


We are not anymore than one soul, we are only what we can be in any one moment, at which life presents in real time… No amount of regret or sorrow will change the past.. No amount of apologies will change what’s happened… And reality tells us that even if you are genuinely a good person who’s made some big mistakes… You will not be granted restitution by those who want to hold a grudge or make you pay…

Time… Only in time and your own ability to navigate your path will you find the peace, love and happiness you search for… You are in the place you are supposed to be.. And even if that place is grief, trauma and pain, it is real and it should be understood.

As my friend Tim Lawrence says, having someone stand quietly along side of you, holding your hand, whispering I understand is the kindest form of love and support… And as I’ve written recently, everyone carries some kind of special sorrow or pain…

In the moment we can only hope our future is less traumatic and more bright, yes we have some kind of control, mainly over our own moments, but as I’ve highlighted in other posts, our moments are often impacted by those we walk with or chose to protect… People will use you as a stepping stone on their path. Often stepping on your soul to prevent themselves from sinking in their own moment… That is life… And it is an important lesson… One that will over time replay if you are someone who sees the needs of others as important… Not everyone is prepared to forgive and not everyone is able to see past your trauma… That is their choice not yours… Remember that…

Today is an opportunity to take a stand.. courage to face others who wrong people whilst digging deep into your own soul to find the light and strength needed to keep going… “We are what we create, and what we are prepared to fight for”

Time passes like water flowing along a river, what I remember now as I let life flow is this; every river has its turbulent times, during flood, where rocks have been washed into the flow… Life is the same. And people will throw rocks at you.. They will unsettle your flow… What I realised is by holding their rocks I’ve allowed life to become turbulent… Creating a set of Rapids and not a calm flow that just meanders along peacefully creating life…

I am past this place of turmoil and flux… And feel the waters of life calming down.. Yes today is another moment, more unsettled flow, but it’s as if only one side of the river of life is unsettled, that there is an opportunity to slowly move to calm waters and navigate this moment with less impact or fear of being smashed by the rocks others have thrown in to the flow of life….

In time other souls flow into your life, it’s in this moment you can consider if their willingness to float alongside of you is love, or a lesson ~ The Motive🙏🏼
