Rise and be Resilient
“Sometimes the tide is with us, and sometimes against. But we keep swimming either way.”
- Charlie Munger
Life. It happens.
It can be messy. Challenging. Complex. Difficult. Grief-inducing.
That is juxtaposed with its Beauty. Surprises. Love. Unexpected kindness. Unconditional support. And joy!
I am blessed that I have a front row seat to all this complexity in the work that I do. I sometimes even see it happening all simultaneously!
Hardships and challenges help us to clarify what is working and what is not. Hardships help us to move away from the status quo towards our self-actualized, greatest potential. Hardships (and all the emotions that go with it) help us to focus on, walk towards, and achieve what we truly deserve.
This is why resilience is a journey and why joy is unteathered to circumstances. The journey is message, the learning path, the growth potential. Each emotion is a signal gently nudging us in the direction we should go until we find our purpose and what is truly meaningful.
This is why perseverance is a power that leads to resilience and growth.
Indeed, a person determined to rise, will. Even if it starts only in their mind. In an idea. In a thought. That is where your choice lies. Where you power lies. A choice and power that cannot be taken away or destroyed by challenge.
So be determined to rise. Know your potential. Grow and transform towards resilience and joy! And savor every experience and emotion that leads you there….
“Resilience is not the absence of difficulty. Resilience is not denying or ignoring difficulty. Resilience is the ability to transform from difficulty. It is the ability to meet challenges head on and transcend difficulty and flourish beyond it.” ~CEA
