On days when things just don't seem to be going your way... flow like water.
Water has this amazing ability to adjust its course based on the surroundings. It can easily flow around, over, under - and sometimes through, roadblocks.
Now, I'm not suggesting conforming at the first hint of resistance but rather loosening your grip and being open to changing your course. Trying something different. Another way.
You could also consider that the universe might actually be trying to tell you something on that day.
