A Flexible Soul

I am very bendy. 

I always have been, I remember in elementary school being abnormally flexible in my hips, and for some reason being very proud of this fact. Even at my biggest, I could still put both feet behind my head. (I know right, how am I still single?!)

But, emotionally, I would say...not so flexible. I'm laid back, definitely, I would say that's a quality I possess. I'm happy to sit around doing nothing, I'll pretty much go with the flow, once I'm in said flow. And I'm fine with change, usually, if a friend needs to switch our plans. For the most, I am mellow.

But...I like to have a plan. I like knowing what my schedule is. I am not a big fan of flying by the seat of my pants in advance, not knowing what's going on, where I'm supposed to be, what I'm doing. I hate sitting and waiting by the phone for my friend to let me know when the hell she's picking me up or, even days in advance, I detest having to pin someone down to give me a straight answer on what the damn schedule is. Just let me know, so I can plan my life around it, please. 

I get flustered and stressed very easily. 

I guess I'm not so flexible. 

I am going to try to work on this. Finding my inner zen master (mistress?), let myself relax more, allow for flexibility in my life and other people's lives. I can't expect everyone to cater to my crazy.
