“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way round or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.” -Bruce Lee
This has been my Word of the Year for 2021. Sometimes it’s hard to be water. I feel so tense and stuck. Sometimes I wonder if the water even flows. Or if I’m just an empty cup. I’ve given everything to others and now I have nothing left but vapors.
I don’t feel excitement anymore. I don’t have anything I look forward to. Just going through the motions of life. I’m too tired. Too busy. Too dehydrated.
How do I rediscover my thirst for life?
