Checking in for Week 17‘s task, which was to GO WITH THE COWLICK…the thing you can not change or is resisting change.

The thing that JUST IS!

To let yourself off the hook of straightening it out or of fighting for it to be some other way…especially if it something you can not change…like having a COWLICK!


I was told many years ago

the minute I stop fighting what is, things will change!

That was so true in many areas of my life!

  • what weight I was
  • what level I was in my business
  • wishing I was not divorced
  • not wanting to live where I was
  • certain aspects of my body that just are
  • relationships I was in
  • the cowlicks that I have!

When I ACCEPTED HOW THINGS WERE, things began to change.

Things like…

  • my weight
  • living situation
  • relationships…with others and myself.

The biggest change was in my MIND and HAPPINESS LEVEL!

There was so much more peace, kindness, and gentleness.


Anytime I catch myself fighting or even wishing something was different, I remember my COWLICKS!   I see them everyday!

The COWLICKS are there. 

That is just how it is.

Go with them.

Love them!

What are your COWLICKS?

Cheering You On to a Whole PEACEFUL COWLICK Heart,

The 17th task of 50 Weeks to a Lighter More Loving You is to GO WITH THE COWLICK!!!

cow·lick:   a lock of hair that grows in a direction different from the rest and that resists being combed flat.


I have a cowlick!  To be accurate, I have three!

I’m sure if I had grown out my bangs, which I never have, I wouldn’t have spent as much time and energy trying to get them to lie flat or make my bangs stay together! On rare occasions, with much hairspray, I can get my bangs to look like straight, full bangs for about 30 minutes!

The thing is…I will ALWAYS have the cowlicks!

Eventually, after many a year, I gave up and just WENT WITH THE COWLICKS!!

What in your life goes in a different direction than what you’d like?

What will you ALWAYS have, but are trying to FIX?

Is it something with your…

  • Body?
  • Work or Career?
  • Child?
  • Spouse?
  • Home?
  • Life?

Where are you spending a lot of time with very little or no change?

This week GO WITH THE COWLICK…the thing you can not change or is resisting change. The thing that JUST IS!

Let yourself off the hook of straightening it out, of battling it, of fighting for it to be exactly the way you want.

Does that mean you totally give up?  Maybe!!!

  • Maybe it’s time to regroup and gain some knowledge.
  • Maybe it’s time to try something else or go in a different direction.
  • Maybe it’s time to seek some help.
  • Maybe it’s time to give something the heavy-ho.
  • Maybe it’s time to quit!

MAYBE IT’S TIME TO ACCEPT IT THE WAY IT IS!

Cheering Yon On to a Whole GO WITH THE COWLICK Heart, 

Barbara
