Inner Growth Word of the Day: Adaptable
Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (adj.) capable of being or becoming adapted (able to change or be changed in order to fit or work better in some situation or for some purpose).
Adaptable in a sentence: When you are adaptable, you always find a way to work with what life brings your way.
Adaptable in action: Being able to change what you do to better meet a specific circumstance and/or need of a situation, is being adaptable.
Adaptable and inner growth: Being adaptable means you take time to pause and reflect, to accept what is different or unexpected and work with it. This also means you do the same thing with yourself (inner self), which is how inner growth is brought about. Thanks to your adaptable tendencies and your inner exploration, you pursue potential changes or at the very least gain awareness of your inner self to a more in-depth level.
Adaptable and inner growth action steps:
- In-depth self-exploration questions: How do I feel about being adaptable? What does being adaptable mean to me? How has being adaptable changed my life? How has being adaptable affected my relationships? What are some of the key takeaways that I’ve gotten from my adaptable experiences? When did I first take a look at how adaptable or not I was?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with adaptable at the center and then list or put around it all the other words that come to mind associated with it. Pick three words from your list and think about a situation where you were adaptable that comes to mind for each word you chose. Next write about one of those situations using the words from your first list.
- Bring your awareness to your feelings about adaptable and allow those emotions to flow from head to toe. Don’t think much, just follow your feelings with your mind and feel the sensations they’re sending your way. Once you are fully enveloped in those feelings, allow thoughts to come to mind. Focus on the first thought that you think of and let it show you through the feelings it brings about, why it came to mind this moment.
