Part 1 – Release
Part 2 – Flexible
Sorry this is late! I had ballet and school yesterday, and on Wednesday I was super busy with schoolwork and more dance!
Hey guys! Before we begin, I would like to thank everyone for your support for the giveaway! We’ve gotten a lot of entries and I’m super excited! I’m so impatient to find out who wins, I don’t think I can wait until February 3! We also are also at 60 followers now, so thank you so much!!
I mentioned in my post Release that my personal word of the year is Flexible, and I’m going to share with you today what that means to me!
-capable of bending easily without breakingGoogle Dictionary
-able to be easily modified to respond to altered circumstances or conditions.
-(of a person) ready and able to change so as to adapt to different circumstances.
I’m a dancer, so being flexible is important. If you can do the splits on the ground, you’ll be able to leap into the air beautifully onstage. You can bend your body to perform better, and strengthen your muscles to help you hold flexible positions longer.
But the word flexible doesn’t only apply to dancers, contortionists, gymnasts, and more, it also applies to personality!
12 I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me.Philippians 4:12-13 English Standard Version (ESV)
I like things to be nice, even, clear. I set a lot of deadlines for myself, and get really stressed out if I don’t finish them. (I thought I was going to be able to film my Christmas AGSM by December 21, but I only finished it on New Years’ Day!)
So, this year, I’m trying to be more flexible with my schedule, “deadlines”, and accept changes in my life as part of God’s plan.
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.Romans 12:2 ESV
Last year I faced a lot of changes and a lot of new things, and this year might not bring such drastic alterations to my life. But it surely will bring changes.
In a way, being flexible kind of means being strong, too: “capable of bending easily without breaking.” Even though this definition is probably more for material things, I think it can also apply to life! If you are flexible, you’ll be able to stand more firm in your faith.
To keep this series going, I need your help! What’s YOUR word of the year? If you share it in the comments, it might be featured in the next part of the series! Thank you so much for your help, guys! God bless!
