One thing travel is good for is forcing us out of our comfort zones, interrupting our routines and monotony. We make plans, but they often don’t turn out as we expect. It is important to be adaptable, especially in challenging moments.
I was reminded of this at the “end of the world” (at least the southernmost part of South America), where the wind will literally knock you over. Most of the flora in Ushuaia is short and sturdy to withstand the harsh climate, but the “flag trees” adapt by growing in the direction of the wind.
There’s no need to snap under pressure, just bend in a different direction.
