KJ Landis, author of Happy Healthy You, has written a new blog post about what it truly means to be flexible.
As my yoga studio closed again for the second time, I was thinking to myself how okay I felt with that. Why wasn’t I more freaked out at the loss of community and regular classes for me? I take classes and teach classes there so I love being in the space. After a long moment of reflection and mindfulness, I realized why: with yoga I become more flexible in my body and mind. I am more flexible and more flexible. It is keeping me peaceful with whatever outcome occurs due to the pandemic changing business models and my employment status.
I am okay with being laid off for now. I spend more time being creative and reaching out to friends and family than I have for years! It feels so good to really connect and that is food for the soul, for sure. I had three jobs and my writing, as well as being a mama and wife. Then I got laid off from everything except being creative, and being family, friend, lover, and private wellness coach.
Okay, so this is what life is handing me. I accept. I gotta be flexible to survive. And in every movie with dramatic changes worldwide, only those able to be flexible and adapt survive and thrive. We can grow and get to know ourselves deeper during this time. Usually we are too busy to do so. I implore you to develop flexibility and love yourself into a better existence.
Please write to me and tell me what you are doing to thrive in the inner world of your life right now. I want to hear from you.
