Real Time: Sunday, 23 June 2019.

There’s a point in life when ”going with the flow” will not work anymore and let me tell you, it has never worked. And besides, tf is this flow that you’re going with and where is this flow taking or leading you?

Learn to create this flow for yourself and by yourself. Visualize, plan, schedule, coordinate, and execute this flow. Take control of what flows in your life. This is the people around you, this flow is the energy around you, this flow is the environment you’re in, this flow is your thoughts, this flow is your habits, this flow is your attitude. All of these (and more) mentioned, are the things you have control over. At any given time, you can always discard some of the people in your life, meet and make new friends, you can always reconstruct your habits, you can always lean towards positive energy and this will definitely have a positive impact in redeveloping a more desirable attitude for your and in your life.

Going with the flow has hurt a lot of people, going with the flow does not build character, it moulds you into nothing. Going with the flow does not give you an option to choose and/or decide, remember you’re going with the flow right? so basically you have no say whatsoever. You have allowed the flow to make choices and decisions for you. You have given away your power to this flow that you’re so comfortable in, this flow provides comfort for some reason.

I have gathered that we find comfort in going with the flow because we are scared of taking control of being firm and confident in making choices and decisions for our lives. So going with the flow does that for us, as previously mentioned, it takes control and we give it the power to choose and decide for us, we’re scared to make choices and decisions that may, later on, turn into disappointment, failure and/or rejection. So this flow even gives you the comfort to lean on it and later blame it when we fall, it is very nice and feels so good to put the blame on somebody or something, we all know this. Taking responsibility is not our favourite thing to do, accountability is a bitch.

Going with the flow is really folly and if you take long to snap out of it, your life might be in an irrevocable state but with that said, you can always recreate and replenish your life and this is entirely on you, it will take grit to gather and put yourself together before your world can fall into place. The people, the universe and everything else can only be able to meet you halfway.

The survivors, the achievers, the successors, the winners, are those with an agile mind, those who set time to be alone, think and seek for awareness time and again.

It is of paramount importance to be fully aware of the laws of nature and the laws of the universe. It might look like everything in the world is just flowing but NAH B, it is not. Going with the flow is not it and will never be it.
