Rigidly flexible

From many years of a life well lived have been many fruits of my labor from both work and play with fitness, health and wellness being among the mix.  

Like other middle-aged men, I’ve harvested my bounty with labor applied to the tasks needing to be done and doing so has required discipline, organization, structure and passion applied in different proportions on different days commensurate with the tasks at hand.

While it’s possible to accomplish many things with a haphazard approach and even with chaos in the background, it seems that more can get done when these elements are not present.  

Yet life doesn’t always get lived with a predictable cadence coexisting with these forces that must be reckoned with as obstacles to getting things done.

There’s something to be said for being flexible and operating in a catch-as-catch-can mode when circumstances require it.

So while I know that discipline, organization, structure and passion will continue to fuel the best in me, I’ll always nonetheless have a private appreciation for operating in a mode that can best be described as rigidly flexible.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
