Knowing How to Yield is Strength

For all of April, I’m going wordless for the A to Z Challenge.

The title of each post is a phrase/ sentence that inspires me as a
writer, and below is a picture I think best embodies it. In the
comments, I invite you to discuss what the phrase means to you, as a person, a
reader, or whatever other role you might choose for yourself in life.

    I love the photo… the tree yielding to the wind. That's a perfect example. If it did not yield, it would lose all its leaves.

    Sometimes I have trouble with this. I really want to do something my way, but it sometimes takes some tough thinking and realization that my way may not be the best way.

    I believe there are times when sacrifices are to be made and making these sacrifices on ones own requires immense strength. Therefore when you yield and when you don not is an act of discretion and a display of sheer raw mental strength.

    This image reminds me of how the tree stands tall and strong even when the wind blows hard….. Yielding is subjective, to some it could mean being adamant to others it might mean courage….

    I agree yielding can be a source of strength but to me the picture conveys "not giving up" even when the wind blows hard…. Standing tall and standing up is more powerful, in my opinion, than giving away and that is what this picture signifies to me…

    I think Yield is going to be my y word, there are many trees that get burned in bush fires in Australia, but it's what is needed for their seeds to germinate.

    Isn't that ever so true. The trees bend with the wind not resist it. We can learn so much from nature. Loved this one.

    That image is beautiful. It makes me feel very introspective for some reason. Very lovely.

    And Damyanti, I just wanted to take a moment and thank you. If you had never stopped by my brand new blog to say hey, I never would have visited your wonderful blog and learned about the A to Z Challenge. I know we're barely halfway through but, it has been a great experience … both challenging and fun. And I've met so many new blogger friends and found some really amazing blogs. It's been incredible! Thanks again!
