It’s a rare thing that life ever actually turns out like we’ve planned. (Ask me how I know?) Although you probably know that from everything that was canceled in the last couple of years: flights, weddings, concerts, Christmas parties– the list could go on and on!
Fortunately, we humans are gifted with the ability to change course. We took to the internet to connect with others. We created “parades” to celebrate birthdays and graduations. We wrote letters. We ordered takeout. We collectively began to spend more time outdoors. We learned to knit, bake, woodwork, and speak different languages. We were and still are flexible in the face of disappointment. Despite all the hardship, we put our human flexibility into play and continued to thrive.
Today I am grateful for the blessing of mental and emotional flexibility. What are you thankful for today?
Have a wonderful day, everyone!
