Today, I took my brother and his wife, who are visiting from BC, to Niagara Falls. It was an absolutely perfect day to spend walking up and down the falls. Since it is winter, the normal crowds of tourists were not to be found. As I starred at the beautiful wonder that is Niagara Falls, I couldn’t help but to think about how it relates to my own life.
Our lives move at such a rapid pace and we all try to control the flow, but life is a powerful force. We need to stop fighting it and go with it. Magical forces happen when we let it.
Sometimes I spend so much time trying to achieve perfection that I miss the experience. The power of the water as it heads over the falls is amazing. There is no stopping it. Even in the dead of winter, the water is unstoppable. Yes, places of ice can form around it, but the flow is so powerful the falls continue.
This is like life. We can stress. We can control, but things will happen. Isn’t it better to go with the flow and enjoy the experience.
Thanks Niagara for the reminder!
