Life is a river, they say.
An apt image.
Life is in motion, changes are our daily bread.
Sometimes we swim in the river, sometimes we are on a safe boat or on a raft that may seem shaky.
Life is cannot be planned.
That is why we often do well to let go and be open to new things.
Instead of sticking to the status quo.
To flow like a river.
A river cannot be stopped.
Keep your head above the water as much as possible.
This openness and flexibility to bravely face changes are actually our resilience.
In other words, the ability to survive crises without lasting impairment.
