What if a rubber band refused to stretch? It might not expand to reach its potential. It may lose elasticity and fail to get back in shape. It might not be willing to hold things in place. A rubber band’s ability to stretch gives it value. Flexibility enables it to expand, and this leads to growth. While adaptability is essential, resilience allows it to bounce back to realize its full potential.

You’ll also be refreshed and ready to spend time doing what you really want to do.

At times, life feels like a roller coaster. So many twists and turns make it seem the world has been turned upside down. In letting go and releasing control, there’s freedom. By confronting fear and conquering obstacles one by one, you'll find the courage to handle the ride. Embracing this concept altered my perspective. Going with the flow, everything changed. Surrendering to natural movement, tension decreased. Consciously giving in and resisting the need to know led to a newfound sense of control.
Busyness is used as a measure of success. If able to do more, have more and be more, we somehow feel in control of our lives. If you feel this way, you’ve come to the right place. That very same drive that pushes you to do more, have more and be more is calling you into a courageous, purposeful life. Finding balance beyond the busyness is possible. The answer is inside of you. But you have to slow down long enough to hear your own thoughts. Make time for yourself daily. Rediscover what you love to do, and do it. And if you have a goal, take action every day. The size of the step is unimportant. Just be consistent. Do it for you.
What do you do when circumstances are against you? Do you fold under pressure or get back up and stand tall. Life throws curveballs. Learn to handle them with grace. If able to adapt and adjust, you’ll always stay in the game. It can be a challenge to go against the grain. But when life pushes you down, take a stand. Never lower your standards to fit in. Always raise the bar, and you’ll stand out.
