Spring is coming to the UK but this morning there are gale-force winds howling and gusting. Overnight the garden furniture has been thrown all over the place by the strength of the wind. By contrast, he daffodils are still in exactly the same place – resolutely just blowing in the wind, their stems allowing them to flex and remain unbroken.
We can learn a lot from nature.
If we are rigid and unbending in our outlook and beliefs, then we may be easily damaged. In fact, if contradicted or challenged, we might well snap!
If we are willing to bend a little, accept compromise in our lives and be open to change, then our life – like the daffodils – may bend a little but ultimately will spring back anew.
