Be Flexible

It’s a great way to create a good and happy life.

If we insist on sticking to a plan to achieve whatever our goals are we will either miss out on opportunities or because of stubbornness stick with a way of living or a belief and become miserable.

How can we be more flexible? Take small steps. This quote from E. L. Doctorow gives the perfect visual on how to move ahead and adapt as we go; “Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can only drive as far as the headlights but you can make the whole trip that way”.

This way of thinking (and seeing) would apply to relationships, careers, business and even faith.

I wonder if as we get older we become too rigid or set in our ways of doing things? We can’t fight aging but we sure can use small steps to learn to adapt. Go grab a flashlight and be happy!
