Five Minute Friday: Adapt

It’s Friday!  Lots of good stress in my life right now.  And some of the regular kind as well.

I turned 51 this week.  Birthdays are a good time to reflect on blessings.  I am truly blessed.

Linking up with Kate Motaung and the Five Minute Friday community to write for five minutes on the word prompt adapt.

********************

When you adapt, you make adjustments to your environment.

I’ve read recently that the frog in the boiling pot of water is all wrong. That doesn’t really happen.

I don’t know.

I do know it’s easy to make adaptions to culture and eventually blend in when you should stand out.

“Don’t be conformed to the world.”

It has to be a conscious choice, because the path of least resistance is conformity.

It’s a continual choice. Which path are we taking? Whose voice are we listening to?

*******************

After I finished writing for five minutes and was looking for an image, I remembered the modern translation of that verse, “Don’t let the world squeeze you into it’s mold,” and contrasted that with the potter’s hands skillfully creating beauty.

What a difference.

P.S. I had somewhat of an epiphany this week thinking about the image of pulling up stakes at a campsite.  It so parallels the transitions I’ve experienced personally.
