Let Things Flow Naturally Forward

Valerie Rickel

“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow.
Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
—Lao Tzu

Happy Monday! I’m excited to share a Visual Inspiration with you today, featuring one of my favorite quotes by ancient Chinese philosopher and founder of Taoism, Lao Tzu.

These words resonate with me so much. I’ve always found peace and joy when I allow things to flow naturally in my life. Do you find this to be true, too?

This photo was taken in the Adirondacks of New York by a good friend of mine and seems to convey the message of this quote quite perfectly.

I hope today’s Visual Inspiration brings you inner peace! Enjoy ♥

    Thank you! I needed to hear that today. Sometimes we try to control what we can’t control, and cause ourselves much unhappiness. I always have to remind myself to let life flow and all will be ok.

    • You are so right, Ivy! I’m happy to hear that the message was what you needed to hear. Thanks so much for commenting! Blessings, Valerie ♥
