Life Is Like a Rip Current.

Go with the flow.

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres. We publish pieces written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team, and though they are reviewed for adherence to our guidelines, they are submitted in their final form to our open platform. Learn more or join us as a community member!

We spend so much of life resisting, a natural response when deviated from our intended direction. Those who keep fighting life changes as if in a rip current often find themselves exhausted, unmoving, and drowning.

Sometimes it is best to go with the flow just like when stuck in a rip current. Sure, you may be diverted from your original direction but you will survive, and maybe even find a new or better path, or learn something along the way.

Thrive Global
People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
