Flexibility means able to bend or be bent repeatedly without damage or injury, able to adapt to new situations, subject to influence. The picture that comes to my mind is of the palm tree in the midst of a hurricane. With the rains falling and the winds blowing at unprecedented speeds, most other things are destroyed because of their lack of flexibility while the tall palm tree simply bends, even at times touching the ground.
When the storm is over, the mayhem is evident all around except when you examine the palm tree. Sure, a few of its leaves may be stripped away and its coconut fruit may be missing, but the essence of the palm tree is still visible and viable.
We need to learn to be flexible when life comes blowing hard at us and learn to adapt! No matter what you’re going through today, I encourage you to be flexible in your approach, response or thoughts.
