When I have flexibility, 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 always 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 a diversion in 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 metamorphoses 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 supervisor may sometimes change his mind and that my work could vary as a result. I simply re-adjust and move on with my work.
At home, my partner 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.
