It’s been a few months since I’ve blogged here. Not because I haven’t wanted to — but mostly life flows on in some new directions these days and I have not had enough time to sit quietly and gather my thoughts!

This is a good place for me, being in the flow, because so much of my life I have fought that sense of movement. Things “moved on” before I was finished with them, or people flowed out of my life and I didn’t want them to.

Resisting the flow of life didn’t get me much more than a good dose of Panic and Anxiety. Recovering from these has included a process of envisioning my life as a flowing river or stream. That I’m both the water and I am *in* the water. There is a time for things to happen and un-happen, and there is also a sort of timelessness about my life.

Maybe I’m just getting old. 🙂

But I find that I am no longer feeling the pinch of time, as if I don’t have enough of it. I feel like some of my days are longer than they’ve ever been!! I am enjoying the weather – even when it is weather that I usually don’t like. I’ve been pretty Panic-free now for a good long time.

I’m still busy – but not filled with busy-ness.

So I guess this is what I mean by being “in the flow.”
