There will be times when we must be rigid in our stance toward life’s circumstances.
Other times, we must be yielding.
Both of these attributes must be available to us if we are to be successful.
They must exist inside of us to be called upon as necessary, to be used when needed.
We have to move between these two sides of ourselves while simultaneously maintaining our integrity.
We need not be rigid at the cost of kindness.
Nor should we be yielding at the cost of our principles.
We must balance our strength with softness and our softness with strength so that, no matter what stance we take, we are always true to ourselves, our calling, and our path.
