Being resilient is not just about being “tough”. There is so much more to it.
There is a duality embedded within this noble trait – that’s what makes building resiliency such a fascinating journey.
One must learn the art of being firm yet flexible – to find order within chaos – to value evolution over control.
No matter one’s age, life will always contain some element of suffering.
What life can’t guarantee is your willingness to look suffering in the eye and do something positive about it – to build resiliency in the face of suffering and challenge.
Every day life gives us another chance at this. What are you going to do with it, friend?
