Ebb and Flow Friday

ebb and flow

to decrease and then increase, as with tides; a decrease followed by an increase, as with tides.

Is this anyone else lately? The ebb and flow of life? Maybe it’s a flow that’s overflowing and then forced into an ebb. Like a Dam?

No really, think about it. Ebb and flow. Decreasing in order to increase, repetitively.

I’m trying to decrease my thoughts in order to increase my trust.

I’m trying to decrease my “busyness” in order to increase my priorities.

I’m trying to decrease my quick fixes in order to increase my long lasting solutions.

I’m trying to decrease my complexity in order to increase my simplicity.

Too profound for a Friday? Stay with me.

Ebb and Flow.. it’s a constant motion. A wave of pulling and pushing. How do we find balance? Maybe we just… go with the flow?


I think in order to “go with the flow” we must believe in ourselves, we must surround ourselves with GOOD people who know how to stay afloat, and must trust our foundation (faith, God, etc.).

Look… we’re ebbing.. and flowing… right? Winking smile


This week I went through a few “ebbs” but luckily I feel as if the end of week has more of a “flow.”

A solid run week for my so called ZOOMA “training” program, a few more minutes of quiet time reading my devotional, words of encouragement from friends and the hubs……

wild kiwi

And a little extra nourishment to ride in the tide.

I’d say this ebb and flow post sets the tone for Laura’s Strange But Good link up in a WHOLE new WAY. Haha. Winking smile


What’s your ebb and flow of life right now? Any other Strange but Good recipes?
