Adjusting Your Sail To Reach Your Destination

Hello Everyone,
How important is it to be flexible in our daily undertakings?   So many times throughout our day we try and fight off circumstances, people and events. We do everything within our power to try and resist the changes that confront us, and yet we continue to struggle fighting against a powerful force that will simply not letup.  Do we ever stop to think about the actual process of change?  Here is a quote I'm using today in which I will advise you to give it some thought:  “I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”...Jimmy Dean
  Every goal, every dream, every  purpose that we can think of  within the recesses of our minds is not so much a destination but rather a journey of experiences filled with lessons, hardships, and challenges that must be confronted and overcome in order to experience the pleasures of the destinations that we have within our minds.  Life will always throw you curve balls, and  unless we adjust, adapt and alter our course to match the changes that we are experiencing, we will suffer the consequences of ill-fated decisions that may leave us guilt ridden for the remainder of our lives. Remember, you can't control the wind , but you can always adjust your sails.
