I am flexible when I need to be.
When I am flexible, I can adjust to changing situations. Whether I am at work, at home or with friends, I try to do everything I can to keep pace with what is happening.
One thing I can count on is this: change is constant. And for this reason, I have learned to embrace change. Because I accept change, I can stay balanced whenever there is something new in my life.
Trying to control everything about my life can get pretty frustrating. Therefore, it is wiser for me to go with the flow. I recognize the difference between things I can change and things that are beyond my control.
For those things beyond my control, I am flexible. For example, when people I know go through changes in their lives, I can compromise as they change and grow.
At work, I roll with the punches when projects and plans change. I accept that my manager may sometimes change her mind and that my work could vary as a result. I simply re-adjust and move on with my work.
At home, my family occasionally makes suggestions about how we can do something differently, such as eat dinner later or take a walk in the evening instead of the morning. When these conversations begin, I remind myself to be flexible.
Today, I plan to re-commit to remaining as flexible as possible. I am pleased about my ability to be flexible. Life is much easier whenever I am willing to go with the flow.
