I can be changed by what happens to me.
I refuse to be reduced by it.

It is not
the strongest of the species
nor the most intelligent.
It is the one
most adaptable to change.

Something has happened recently that may be stressing you out.
You just received a big assignment, some unexpected news, or you found out that plans (for work, school or life) will need to shift because of an unanticipated event. You may be trying to figure out whether this is going to be GOOD or BAD, and that may not be the most useful thing to ponder right now!
Instead, you may want to accept that this change is here (or approaching) and jump into ADAPTATION mode and ask yourself “How can I arrive on the other side of this transition a more effective person?
P.S. Remember that I am on retreat and will reply to messages in a few weeks!
