Life's a river

I am trying to think of life as a river. A dynamic path of varying speeds, obstacles, views, and turns. A river flows stronger and weaker in different spots. Has obstacles that want to block its flow. It sees many things as is flows. And it makes several turns over the course of its journey.

It is deep and filled with things trying to grow and thrive inside of it.

As I move forward with my life I realize I can't always control which way the river wants to turn. I have to trust and know that it will flow along a dynamic path that will sometimes be good and sometimes be difficult. You can't control a river. Sometimes you have to just let it flow.

Thank you Pocahontas for teaching us that something can always be waiting just around the river bend.
