Our character trait of the month for May is FLEXIBILITY, with a focus on mental, rather than physical flexibility. (Although props to everyone who can touch their toes without bending their knees or do the splits!)

A person who is FLEXIBLE is able to change plans with a good attitude. Like a tree in a storm, a flexible person is able to bend with the wind, rather than break under pressure. Also like a tree, a flexible person has strong roots and holds on to what is true and right (rather than blindly going on with everything and everybody).

Lincoln Park Lions who are FLEXIBLE can:

  • Anticipate change
  • Adjust when needed
  • Look for the benefits
  • Finish the job
  • Do what is right
