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.
|Soft and Yielding is a Disciple of Life Image via Inarizoo|
When I was a kid, my grandmother usually told me that after a storm, the small grass which is soft and yielding survives, but the proud palm tree falls down.
A very long time since I saw a new post from you?
Great one.. keep going… Keep posting… loved the theme
Soft and yielding I try to be
Fuzzy and cute is all you see
But annoy me a little
and you will get a startle..
Being soft and yielding takes courage and strength…and some feline cunning 😉
I like the post and the picture , too good
Really thought provoking pic
loved your kitty cat picture… soft and provoking? mmmm that certainly has me thinking thats for sure. The picture is beautifully captured with cat doing what comes naturally to them. When I look at the picture I see the cat in a playful pose, perhaps its a kitten who has yet to grow up or perhaps its a cat that has been around a long time enjoying a moment of passion while caught on camera and in the warmth in the sun? Whatever it is, I like it and I love the way this post has grabbed many others attention. It gives us something to think about thats for sure! 🙂

I love cats, they are soft and yielding for sure 😀
Being adaptable and flexible is required to journey through ever changing circumstances in life.
Well, a disciple is a follower or student. In that respect, soft and yielding can mean teachable. If I look at the picture, though, I just think cuddly. LOL Upon closer reflection though, soft and yielding is the cat—the opposite of rigid and immovable. Rigid and immovable wouldn't make for a very good disciple of life. 🙂
Cats are soft and yielding… at least it looks so in this picture.
Soft and yielding says to me that a person is approachable, loveable, and will give in to other people's wishes, but is not afraid to stand up to people. They just like to let other people have their choice. And that cat says wickedness to me. He looks so cute, but you can't trust a cat!
If this kitty is anything like my sister's it looks soft and adorable, and like you're allowed to rub its belly, but as soon as you try, it attacks!
None the less, I love the idea for our A to Z Challenge. And I love the kitty picture.
What a great idea for posts! Thanks for stopping by my R is for Reading post. If I didn't love reading, I definitely wouldn't be doing my English Master's that's for sure.
So what does your phrase make me think of – I guess I would have to say that it makes me think that one has to choose one's battles. Sometimes yielding to the other person is worth more than the fight.

awww! Cute kitty!! You cannot really live if you stay within your rigid boundaries; you just exist!
soft and yielding simultaneously impossible i suppose
Readiness to adapt to life's many challenges is being soft and yielding. Accommodating to others' beliefs is soft and yielding.
Soft and yielding but watch those claws!
One cant always be soft and yielding in the vicissitudes of life.
For me it says the world has become so ulta (topsy turvy) it appears straight this way 😀
Well said… The hard and stiff will be broken while the soft and supple will prevail.
The soft and yielding cat is a trap. She only wants you to touch her so she can eat your hand!
People mistake soft and yielding for scared and cowardly.
For some reason I instantly thought of my 2 yr old granddaughter.

I see power in submission.
That says to me: "See I can be vulnerable. And I'm soft." I can't help thinking of some of the characters in my WIP and also relationships in my life. 🙂
Awwww…I so love cats.
Our circumstances make us who we are as we allow ourselves to be molded as clay.

Super cute picture. Soft and yielding in life- I envision that to be the part where you be kind to others and show support as well as compromise.
Sometimes it's harder to be soft and yielding than to be firm and steadfast.
