Today’s topic relates to everyday life. Yes, I’m asking you to be flexible. Not in the bendable gymnast sort of way, but in the ‘don’t get so set in your ways that you can’t adapt to change’ way. Be open and flexible to whatever may come, and go with the flow!
Really, I’m asking myself to do this. My personality has me constantly planning the future. I like to be prepared for whatever might come my way, so I think, and I picture, and I plan, and I plan some more. Sometimes this serves me well, especially when whatever I’m planning for takes preparation, but usually this causes more harm than good.
When I plan to the max, I don’t leave my thinking open to the possibility of other paths and outcomes. I leave myself open for disappointment when things don’t turn out as I thought. Bad move, me! I am trying to embrace the unknown and welcome the reality that things hardly ever go as planned. Instead of picturing my ‘perfect’ scenario, I just want to be open to whatever may come, and go with it!
Can’t we all benefit from being more flexible with ourselves? I think it really makes life easier!
