The Flow of Life: Standing Before You Walk (or Run!)

Written by Megan Bayles Bartley, MAMFT, LMFT

Crawling, Standing, Walking, Running…

Oh, the process of life. Here it is, plain and simple.  For those of us who want something NOW, it’s important to remember that before we were able to run, first we walked, stood, and crawled. 

If you are feeling impatient about something ask yourself if you are in the perfect place to receive that thing RIGHT NOW or if there are things you need to complete to make the space more inviting for what it is you want – the perfect relationship, job, living situation. When we create the most inviting space for what we want (and I don’t mean just doing a bunch of busy work) and combine it with some trust (trust in the Universe, God, ourselves) we begin to experience flow.

Babies don’t do a lot of thinking about when they’re going to crawl or walk or run.  They try and try again with the same goal in mind, they are focused but they don’t over think it.  They are trusting and determined, and when they accomplish the task at hand it just happens. 

It’s worth noting that there are usually some people around encouraging them and supporting them. They notice and appreciate the praise and attention and keep trying.

The Flow of Life

This flow of life, of gratitude, of joy, of peace can help you accomplish anything you put your mind to.

Are you experiencing this ever-powerful feeling of “Being in the Flow?” Are you aware of and listening to the people around you who are encouraging and supportive?  Or are you sabotaging yourself and have a mindset of “it will never happen” or “I can’t…” We love helping people find their flow! And they love it even more! Reach out to us and we’ll help you get there!​
