Resilience could be defined as the ability to not be broken by circumstances. But it could also be understood as the ability to make something beautiful from the pieces after we break.

From the Ancestors

“When fear rushed in, I learned how to hear my heart racing but refused to allow my feelings to sway me. That resilience came from my family. It flowed through our bloodline.”
―Coretta Scott King

Venice

The waterways of Venice lend it a unique glamor. The waterways are there, of course, because there’s just so much water, and people found a way to work with the fact.

Float

“Dory said, ‘Just keep swimming.’ But I’ve learned that if you find yourself overboard, you should just bring your knees into your chest and float to conserve energy. So my resilience tip is that floating works for me. There is wisdom in knowing when to rest and to cease from striving…that is if you want to survive.”
―Hayley Solich
