Lessons from Nature: Putting One Foot in Front of the Other

In nature, when we aren’t where our feet our we risk getting missing so much of it’s beauty and its dangers. That is just as true in life. Some paths require us to focus on the step right in front of us. Sometimes we can see why. Other times we find out later that by not paying attention, we ended up in survival mode, just like being lost in the woods. The only way out of survival mode is centering ourselves and our thoughts on thriving in the moment. Questioning the thoughts causing us stress. Are the thoughts useful in the current moment? Are the thoughts helping me create a better life for myself and others? We start putting one foot in front of the other and remain open to see the blessings. This leads to the beauty, which is revealed only in the present moment. When we move into that space, we move out of the drama and darkness that hold us back and into the light where the best solutions become available to us.
What moments are you missing by not focusing on being where your feet are?

Lessons from Nature: Going with the Flow

Life will sometimes bring us to places where we feel out of control. The question is in these moments are we resisting the flow? Sometimes I use nature to show me healthier ways to look at my challenges . The water below just keeps flowing. It hits rocks and finds its way around or creates new pathways to flow. The one thing the water doesn’t do is try to stop in mid flow resisting where the current is taking it. What’s the point? Life is happening whether we like the moment we are in or we don’t. Understanding this to shall pass is accepting the flow of life. Nothing stays the same. We change and grow with the flow of life, resisting just makes the pressure build up and the force that takes us becomes more complicated to navigate. If we can practice going with the flow we see that going through the challenges and letting ourselves fully be present will give us the tools to see our options and have the knowledge to understand that this too will pass. Be the flowing water and trust the process. There are great lessons that come from the drama in our lives.
