Have you ever pulled a muscle so badly that you struggled just to move? When something like this happens, you quickly realize how much you actually depend on the flexibility of that part of your body.
Unexpected circumstances can have the same effect, making you feel frozen in place; like you can’t move forward. Sometimes we feel this way because our mindset is rigid about how a thing should have happened… and it didn’t go quite that way.
You might be headed down a path in life or business or school when suddenly out of nowhere an illness, financial setback, or a rift in a relationship takes you by surprise and flings you into an unknown direction. The more flexible you are in these types of situations, the more quickly you’ll find solutions and “bounce back”.
Not every life experience is easily navigated – but many are easier if we can learn to “pivot” when they come.
Today’s Peace of Wisdom can be found by remembering: Blessed are the flexible…for they shall not be bent out of shape.
