How flexible are you?

How flexible are you?  How defended are you?  Do you greet change, new situations, and new ideas with a yes, or a no? Do you bend gracefully with the wind and the seasons but somehow manage to stay rooted and grounded?  When are you stiff and unbending -- and how many times has that led to a fall? Do you know where you tend to draw the line between flexible and inflexible? And have you considered stretching that point?

We need our egos, our minds, our brains, our opinions, our boundaries: we spend the first half of our lives forming them for very important reasons.  But to stay hopelessly wedded to what you grew up believing was true can sometimes keep you isolated, locked out of the joy life has to offer...
