Why Being A Go With The Flow Kind Of Person Is The Best

Why Being A Go With The Flow Kind Of Person Is The Best

What is this plan you speak of?

If you are a go with the flow kind of person, your life is usually a hot mess. Only the most random and unfortunate things happen to you, but you don’t let it bother you. Some call us “disorganized,” but that is such a harsh word. We try to set a plan, but it usually does not go the way we expected. Usually, that would bother most people, but not us. Our cute planner we bought is basically unused or is full of things that never got done exactly according to plan, but being this kind of person is actually a gift without us realizing it.

1. Nothing bothers us.

What’s stress? Since we never know what is actually going on half the time, when something happens that really throws a wrench in our day, we never let it bother us because it is just another funny story we can tell and an opportunity for a new adventure. Oh, my car broke down? That’s okay. I became friends with the tow truck driver, Instagrammed a picture of us, heard his life story, and now I have a date with his son.

2. We’re almost always in a good mood.

If something is happening in our lives that is bothering us or we are supposed to go to something we really don’t want to, we do something spontaneous and toss our plan completely out the window. I don’t care if it was a “scheduled” (what does that word even mean?) part of my day, the one part of my life that I have in control is my mood, and I’m not going to let something stupid ruin that. Doing something out of nowhere can really get you out of a rut, I’ll deal with the consequences tomorrow.

3. "Comfort zone" isn’t in our vocabulary.

We’re always ready to try something new and aren’t worried about something tearing us down. If I’m good at it, great. If I’m not, oh well. Since we are never really worried about something going wrong, because we just go along with the flow, adversity doesn’t really bother us. If anything it just makes us work harder. We are always trying to break barriers in fun, creative, and spontaneous ways.

4. We are the most fun people you will ever meet.

We don’t need every day for the next two weeks to be planned out for us. To be honest, we really don’t want that anyways. We are the queens of spontaneity. Some people will plan that day trip to the beach a week in advance, but for us, we think of it the night before and it ends up being the most fun day of our lives. Usually, there would be set time we leave, arrive, and head back home, but not in the lives of a go with the flow person. We leave whenever we feel like it, stopping for food, ice cream, and that random amusement park. Oops - we never actually made it to the beach? Still was the best day ever. You know why? Because life is just so much more fun when you don’t know what the hell is going to happen.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

10 Ways To Start Your Days Off Right By Bringing A Little Joy And Positivity Into Your Morning

"Listen to the birds sign a sweet morning song."


I'll be the first to admit, I'm not exactly what you would call a "morning person." That being said, I think it's high time I bring some joy into my mornings. I mean, life is beautiful, and by not enjoying mornings, I think I'm missing out on a potentially enjoyable part of life.

So if you want to start enjoying your mornings like me, here are ten things you might want to try doing to start your days off right.

1. Make a happy and healthy breakfast.


Make some toast, eggs, fruit, granola, or yogurt. OR, break out the bacon and have a good time. Any of those options sound like a good morning to me.

2. Drink a fresh cup of coffee (or tea).


For me, I don’t think anything could beat the smell of a coffee being made in the morning. So whether you’re into coffee or tea, use a nice warm drink as a way to bring a little joy into your mornings.

3. Smile when you wake up.


Start your morning with a good old-fashioned smile. Look in the mirror, look at how wonderfully made you are, and take a moment to smile and take that in.

4. Try to stay off of social media when you first wake up.


I know, it’s all too easy to become glued to your phone these days, BUT I think that’s a few moments of time away from it, and away from social media, can be a good way to stay positive in the mornings.

5. Journal your thoughts going into the day.


Take a pen, pencil, and a piece of paper, and take a moment to write down your thoughts, feelings, emotions, or anything else on your mind going into a new day.

6. Put on clothes that make you feel happy.


Put on whatever outfit makes you happy, whether that’s a cute sweater or a t-shirt. Wear something that makes you feel good.

7. Watch the sunrise.


OK, so I know you might not be able to do this every morning, but I think that watching the sunrise is the perfect way to start any day. What could be better than taking in all of these wonderful creations?

8. If you can, sit outside and enjoy our planet.


On that note, take some time to sit outside and enjoy the early morning and the world around you. Start your morning off with some time to really just sit back and take it all in.

9. Spend some time reading something you enjoy.


Grab a good book, a magazine, or whatever it is you might like to read. Take some time to clear your mind, and then fill it with lots of good writing.

10. Listen to the birds sign a sweet morning song.


Arguably my favorite thing on the list, I truly can see no downside to listening to the birds chirping away in the morning. If you can, take some time to listen to nature’s sweet morning song.

Hopefully you can try one of these tactics to brighten up your morning, and in turn, maybe even brighten up your whole day. We live in a wonderful world, and I think that it's time we start to recognize that.
