I do love yoga and dancing both of these require a certain amount of flexibility to do well, and flexibility is important for me as my body once almost failed me, so I work at staying reasonably flexible.
Flexibility also means staying open to outcomes and opportunities that may or may not have been on your radar, perhaps they have come in a form that isn’t what you expected at all and you haven’t even recognised them as opportunities or outcomes. Perhaps you have been ready to commit to something and suddenly it seems to have changed direction or perhaps you expected to be going somewhere different from where you have ended up?
