A real interesting reality in life is the principle of "ebb and flow". It means a decline and increase, constant fluctuations, it alludes to the inward and outward motions of the oceans tides.
Have you ever said "when it rains it pours"? Have you ever noticed that life seems to be going along just fine then a series of circumstances develop that cause/bring you grief or angst?
How about running along a road and it's peaceful but suddenly it becomes "grand central station!" then it goes back to quiet? You get the picture! Ebb and Flow, a reality that when understood we find we can be prepared for troubles, trials, or difficulties, and we can enjoy to the fullest the times of peace.
Think about it and start observing how this happens in your life...you will be surprised! Often all I want is the easy, peaceful, no problem times.....not gonna happen! Expect the hectic! Be prepared!
This principle is applicable to running. There is a time for increase and decrease....the body needs ebb and flow. Times of stress and times of rest. I must learn to pay attention to my body. Where am I in this principle?
