Don't Force, Just Allow

My Zodiac sign is Taurus. And like all of the signs there are strengths and weaknesses associated with being a “bull.” One of my weaknesses that I’ve worked on over the last few years, is calming down my tendency to “charge” at things in my life try to force things to happen. Instead of going with the beautiful flow of life and trusting that everything will work out perfectly, I felt like I was responsible for everything and had to make things to happen. Talk about wearing myself thin and I doubt this crazy way of living is just a “Taurus thing.”

Could you relate to the idea of trying to push and force things in your life to happen? While you were doing it did it feel unnatural, uncomfortable or exhausting? The reason going against the flow of life feels so bad is because we aren’t meant to do it, plain and simple. We force and push because we’re taught we need to “make things happen” in our lives and I get that we cant’ just sit around and wait for things to fall in our laps. But there’s only so much you can do in any given situation before you need to relax your grip and let it go.

It’s in the “letting go” and allowing of the awesome flow of life that we can receive rest, rejuvenation, inspiration and a bit of down time that we all deserve and need.
