When I was a kid, adolescent really, I lifted weights. I was an athlete, among other things, and understood I needed to be stronger to better compete. And so in that adolescent athlete world, we’d talk about “flexing” your muscles.
But that’s not what this post is about. It’s about being flexible; and I don’t just mean physically. In particular, I mean situationally.
It’s SO important in life to be able to flex, adjust, accommodate, compromise.
A therapist I worked with might say this approach isn’t necessarily, the best one; but I disagree. We humans need to know how to flex to find happiness, CHOOSE happiness, and create progress.
In politics, in parenting, in marriage, in conflict, at work, in life, bending, being able to flex is key.
FLEX. You’ll be glad you did.
