I identify with this object very much. My life is very full these days. I work full time, am the supervisor there. I am a wife, mother of 2, grandmother of 3 1/2 , daughter, sister, niece, cousin, neighbor and friend. All these roles take up my time and energy. I try to hold it altogether.
Qualities of the rubber band that I admire are:
Strength – the ability to withstand pressure
We all have to be strong to withstand the storms of life
Stretch – Stretch our minds, hearts and abilities; adapt to new circumstances
Resilience – The ability to get back to normal once we have been through a time of change.
Sometimes it’s the little things, the most commonplace things that can teach us life lessons.
So when life gets to you and you feel overwhelmed – think ” I am a Rubber Band” – soon enough you will have it all together!
Have a great Rubber Band Day!
