Life is a River

August 19, 2008

When it comes down to it, few events in life are worthy of the discomfort we put ourselves through by worrying about them in advance. The river of life flows on, following a course only partially of our making. We may be able to steer the boat, but the river has its own shape, and all our worrying won’t change its contours.

Life is a river. Go with the flow.

  10. “…all our worrying won’t change its contours.”

    True, that. What we can do, however, is shape our ride according to these contours and make best of what we have and what we get. Flow on. πŸ˜‰

    *encores Kenny’s words “Flow on.”* πŸ˜‰

  11. I think I have a rebellious nature. I don’t always go with the flow. Wanna find out and know stuff that are not mainstream. Get left behind sometimes but its all good. πŸ˜‰

    To each his/her own, PinknPurpleLizard. πŸ˜‰
