Chapter 3, Page 14, Book 13
And the wind said: May you be as strong as the oak, yet flexible as the birch; may you stand tall as the Redwood, live gracefully as the willow; and may you always bear fruit all your days on this earth.
Native American Prayer
Capable of being bent or flexed; pliable.
Responsive to change; adaptable
As March is known as the windy month, I thought the little prayer above fit in here with this word quite well.
To be flexible is a gift. Sometimes it is easier by far to stick to your principals about something and never change. I've found myself in some very difficult situations when it was better to bend a little.
The Fable About Changing Course-A tale about Flexibility
The captain of a ship received a message one night, Change your direction 15 degrees North to avoid collision. A little indignant, the captain replied, I am the captain of a large ship and recommend you divert 15 degrees South.
The captain received the reply, We are a lighthouse.
No matter who you are, life will require flexibility. Be ready to make an adjustment.
Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.
