Transformation Tips Tuesday – The Word of the Day is Flexibility with Reiki Master, Donna McDine
Welcome to Transformation Tips Tuesday at Energy of Serenity. Today I’m focusing on the word flexibility and how it transformed my approach to life with ease.
“Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.”
~ Tony Robbins
I don’t know why, but for some reason when I think of the word FLEXIBILITY, it amuses me. Before I had children, 25 and 22 years ago, I have to readily admit I was not a flexible individual. You would think by getting married 30 years ago, flexibility would have been easy for me. Nope, not for me. Even at the young age of 22, when I married, I was very set in my ways. Specifically, every item had its place and should stay that way. My husband often would move an object slightly just to watch me put in back in place. He certainly did this out of amusement. Bath and bedtime for my daughters as babies and toddlers was always at 7 pm with lights out by 8 pm. And I always arrived 15 minutes early for social gatherings and meetings. Thankfully, my husband has always been a go-with-the-flow person. Over the years though, I’ve learned to relax more and more… hence creating flexibility in my life without even realizing it. I still like specific items in certain places, but I am not as stringent about moving them back. I now arrive either on time or fashionably 15 minutes late for social gatherings, but I always arrive to appointments and meetings 15 minutes early. My epiphany to this newfound flexibility? I’ve learned there is more than one-way to do things and thinking outside the box is much more exciting than staying the narrow-minded course of my way or the highway.
What do you do to stay flexible and to create a more enjoyable life for yourself?
Wishing you a day of blessings,
