Resilience: Showing Your Toughness

Re·sil·ience /rəˈzilyəns/ [noun]: the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.


How are you showing resilience these days?!


If you’re living in the same world I am, then you must be showing it every single day.


2020 has not been easy. 2020 has not been kind.


We’re all experiencing a collective shitstorm of global occurrences.


Living through environmental catastrophes, viral outbreaks & civil unrest. Literally.

Resilience is seen in small moments & in big actions. Even though I don’t get to see you day in & day out, I know you are resilient. I know you have the capacity to rise above challenges. I know you are capable of recovering from perceived setbacks & use them as a catalyst to keep driving forward.


You are tough.


If you don’t think so, it could all be a matter of perspective.


What Life Hands You:

  • Excuses

  • Distractions

  • Hardships

  • Despair

  • Unpleasantness

  • Discomfort


Yes - sometimes what life hands you outright sucks. It can feel like the world is conspiring against you. It can seem like everyone else has lost their minds.


It can feel overwhelming, discouraging & like a total loss.


But we can also actively show some resilience through all of that difficultly.


What You Can Choose to See:

  • Reasons

  • Opportunity

  • Growth

  • Hope

  • Transformation

  • Humility


Life is a matter of perspective. Yes, there are truths involved, but your perception of experience will determine your resiliency as you continue to encounter challenging obstacles.


We experience them independently.

We experience them collectively.


However, each of our perceptions will continue to be markedly distinct & unique.


Enjoy & celebrate that uniqueness. I know you’re capable of showing so much resiliency as we all navigate through these uncharted waters.


Don’t give up now, because there’s so much growth to be had.
