You Either ‘Get It’… or You Don’t.

Life is a never ending river flow. Sometimes the course can become dangerously erratic; Sometimes it’s filled with obstacles like rocks and fallen trees; Sometimes it reaches an ‘end’ with a really large drop, where it continues again.

Every time I watch this video, I get a new message out of it. Well more like the same message, but a different emphasis here and there… life doesn’t stop with your sorrows and it doesn’t care about your feelings, or what you think is “fair”. Obstacles are meant to be bypassed or broken, and you are meant to grow stronger through it all, and keep going.

I’ve had critics call me ‘phony’, based on my online persona. I see me more as ‘fluid’, and will change, adapt, and flow as the situation suits me. Maybe I feel differently about something as I did six months ago, maybe my perspective on a topic or a person has changed. It is the key to growth, survival, and longevity. I’m still who I am at the core, and those close enough to me can see that.

You may get a different message though. This was my interpretation.

    Lee’s philosophy along with the philosophy of many song writers in the 70’s helped me to survive.

    I see that in you, Miles. A lot of deep stuff underneath you “still waters”. You are stronger and wiser than most people credit you with too.

    It’s called ” bending with the wind”. If you can’t do that, you will break in half.

    Yes… I like that, Lee!

  • Something all water-babies can agree with 🙂 I know this moment… and I’m glad you keep reminding me of it.

    I think we both needed it, Beth. I was down for a whole bunch of reasons this week, and you helped lift me back up and reminded me of this.

    Beth Reply:

    I had my downers too 🙂 Glad I could help!

  • Yes—I like this…being able to adapt is key to survival–at least in my book!! Cheers, Jenn
