This Mother's Day weekend, I visited one my favorite places with my family - the Madison Zoo.
We're rounding the corner to visit the giraffes (whom I love deeply, maybe because they're so tall and I'm so not:)
I'm standing there in a small crowd, and right in front of me this giraffe backs up, catches its stance, and dives down and through the fence into a Forward Fold.
Why? To eat a dandelion.
This sweet sight got me thinking about flexibility. Not just having a flexible spine, but the importance of a flexible mind. I wondered how flexible I could be, and where my perception on a daily basis gets stuck. Am I really willing to try new things? Interact with new people? Discover new places?
Take a moment and think about a situation in your own life that could use a new perspective and some flexibility. Maybe your schedule? A relationship with someone close? A long held belief?
Whatever it is, simply tuck your tailbone, engage core strength (your gut instinct), reach out –
And eat the dandelion.
