Bend, don’t break

As my thirties progress I’ve developed a mental resilience that goes far beyond any previously held traits of rebellion or stubborness.  I choose my battles a lot more carefully and distribute my energies in a more appropriate fashion than in earlier years. 

These days I am patient and flexible enough to bend yet resilient and deep rooted enough to completely stand my ground.  When the timing is right I then set about doing things my way or, as I prefer to call it, ‘the right way’.  Some days people don’t know what’s hit them and I very much enjoy that.
