Don't push, just take your time and let some things ride...

It's true sometimes we keep pushing and pushing to find a solution to our problem and it seems that nothing works. We kept thinking of a solution to the point that our sleep is already affected and still of no avail. So, I guess some things just takes time to be resolved. I think I will let some things ride for a while and see what happens. Does this happen to you as well?

Sometimes we have to pause for a while and relax a bit and let things flow naturally. There are problems that cannot be solve outright and there are those that can be. The important thing to do is to keep on going and if ever everything fails, perhaps telling something like this to yourself would help.." it if is not to be, then perhaps something better is coming for me" in simple terms, "positive thinking" would certainly help you along the way.

Yes, sometimes, when things are not going your way, it is better to let things be as it is and relax a bit. Relaxing will lessen any stress associated and will help you re-energies and lets you focus on your problem with renewed vigor and fresh mind. With a fresh focus, you tend to solve your problem much better.

That's just my problem sometimes. When I get busy ranting, complaining about my job, and all, I keep forgetting that the best way to deal with some things is to just go with the flow. It's just that sometimes here, it seems like nobody knows what to do with a particular situation in our company and the boss keeps demanding ways that only seem to miss the point. And then I forget again that he's the boss and I am just a staff. Thats why I always seem to poke my nose into a mess because I forget to just ride with things, you know! Nice topic! Though I found it hard to answer somehow!lol

You definitely aren't alone in this happening to you. I've been the person in our family that is continually stressing about money. I have to know where absolutely every dime in or household goes and it is actually something that drives my husband insane at times. So, because I was stressing myself about financial issues so much for such a long time, I decided that I needed to stop worrying about it so much and it seems that everything is actually working out much better now.

Hi, I agreed with what you said in your statement. However ,there is a time whereby no pushing,it won't work and no solution can be find out. It is basically depend on the problem and the person that faced the problem. Some person takes thing easy and don't bother much when problem occured,that type of person need to push a bit,then they will move on and their brain will start to think and think. Or else, they will just sit down there and relax, and no solution can be find. For me, I prefer to get the things done ,no further delay. What I can say is that I am kinda a pushing person.

Yes, I really know what you're saying here. There are so many problems that don't seem to have a solution, and then I would give up trying and a solution would just spontaneously present itself. Life can be so strange sometimes, but I think that may be a good job! _Derek

Hi dear, It happens at several times with several issues. Especially, if it si some thing serious always better to have a second opinion and have it get discussed with differnet people. In relation to the urgency of the matter we need to push up to get an immediate result as well. We may have several ideas and some time we will get better option from others also and may be helpful. In fact, 3 months back I have decided to sell my flat and was looking for some customer and I din't disclosed to few of my immediate friends and relatives. But when they come to know and informed various other consequences I find it is not so good to sell the flat at this point of time. As I got more options and other source of new ideas, I droped the idea of selling the flat and I got resolved without selling the same. So, some time it may be an added advantage and help in times. Regards, Thank-s

Being just ME I tend to push things a lot. Like you said, perhaps I need to to take a back stand and let things ride for awhile.

Everything happened for a reason and according to His way. Nothing just happen because it has to be. There should be something in it that matters for it to happen. Sometimes we tried to do it our way and hurriedly without thinking much on what to do. We are just too focused on it that we cant' see the whole story. Sometimes we just have to get out of the woods to see the whole forest. Relax and laid back so you'll have time to think of solutions and not force the situation.
