Fridays Promise: Resilience
Resilience is the process of adapting graciously in the face of adversity, threats, trauma, tragedy, or stress.
Life can be hard and knock us down in the blink of an eye, no matter how strong we are, no matter how successful we are, or how many friends we have. The truth is we have little to no control over the world around us, but we do have control over how we handle what life throws at us. We must learn to become resilient, this means picking yourself up and making the best of the day, no matter how discouraged you may feel. Resilience is about not letting how you feel stop you from living life to the fullest.
Resilience is about continually striving to be your best self, no matter what life may throw your way. It is remembering who you want to be and who you can be, even when people judge or don’t support you, when you feel as if you are failing, or chaos invites itself into your life. Taking action even when everything may seem hard, but remember that finding the right next thing to do and taking action is very powerful. It may not be the thing that solves a problem, but by creating positive energy through taking action can dissipate feelings of adversity and despair.
We are stronger than we know, and we are able to withstand more than we think we can. A wise person once told me, “life is tough, but so my darling, are you”.
