Being grounded

I am a fairly adaptable person. Have always needed to be. I’ve lived abroad. I’ve lived at boarding school. I’ve lived in cities that were hard to get around considering that I can’t drive. I’ve worked in toxic environments. I’ve worked in very mission-minded positions. All this to say that I have had to be flexible if I wanted to maintain my sanity.

Now being flexible is not necessarily the same as being grounded. However, for me they have gone hand-in-hand. And, for many it has been quite noticeable. I often receive accolades for being so grounded considering my roles as a “boss” or speaker.

I don’t quite understand what people mean when they note I’m grounded. I do know I try to be humble and remember my journey.

Sometimes, though, when I’m up high I look down and wonder about groundedness and how it is important. Whatever it is, I do hope I maintain that quality forever more.
