You Can’t Push The River

“You can’t push the river.” – Unknown


This quote says it all.  If there’s ever a time for this quote, it has been this past year when timelines were totally out of our control.  What we could do, though, was flow and trust the process!


That’s why I love this quote.  I believe I saw it in a Peter Levine book, Waking the Tiger , and it just stood out to me.  True that, Peter Levine, I can’t push the river.  


So, if I can’t push the river, then what are my choices?  You may not like these choices, but they can be some of the most empowering things we can do in life:


Let go

Trust the process

Let go





What happens to you when you accept what’s happening?  How does this affect your mood, your nervous system, your behaviour in relationships, your attitude?


Really think about that and comment below.


I want to know how this lands with you!
