Now I am sure most of your asking yourself…What does he mean by that? And no I do not mean can you do the downward facing dog pose and not fall on your face.
What I am speaking about is the ability to change when life decides that the path you are on is not the one you need to be on anymore. Let me share an example with you:
As a puppy I had an owner who seemed to love me and let me go to work with him, he was a musician and would play in the bars in town and I got to go and sit outside and visit with people. I could not think of anything better, being the young people puppy I was and all.
Then one day out of nowhere, he left the house we lived in without me and did not come back to get me. To make it worse, the one who lived with us did not like me, so she kicked me out of the only home I had ever known.
I had no idea what I was going to do. I had no home, no food and nobody who loved me anymore. After a bit of time, I found myself pretty sick that is when I remembered the nice ladies across the street who would give me treats under the door. I somehow made it to their house and they took me in.
Now fast forward to today and I still live with them, only now they are my human parents and I could not imagine my life any other way.
So now I hope you see what I am talking about. Life is strange and you may think you are living the right life for you, and on the right road, then wham in a second it all changes. The question is do you fall apart or pick up the pieces and find a better life? Your life is what you make of it. You can either be miserable of what you have lost, or stand up, dust the dirt of your bottom, and be happy to start a new chapter in your life.
If I had stayed unhappy and miserable I would not have the AWESOME life I have now and we would not be talking today.
Learn to be flexible you never know where it might take you.
Till next week. Emmy
