Resilience

It’s got you
It won’t let go
It’s glued on
It’s a tenacious hold
It’s laughing at you
It’s mocking you
It thinks it has won

It’s wrong 

Take mini steps to fight
Take it seriously
Take support that’s offered
Take it graciously
Take advice on board
Take it right within
Take a deep breath

You will win 

Take time to rest
Take time to heal
Take time to relax
Take time for meals
Take time to laugh
Take time to cry
Take time for yourself

You will survive

Remember to fight
Remember the gain
Remember the insight
Remember yourself
Remember others
Remember laughter
Remember joy

Give praise

Enjoy the sunrise
Enjoy the new day
Enjoy rain and the rainbow
Enjoy clouds and their shapes
Enjoy the wide, open landscapes
Enjoy the unexpected
Enjoy those who love you

Give thanks

No one escapes pain, fear and suffering. Yet from pain can come wisdom, from fear can come courage, from suffering can come strength – if we have the virtue of resilience. ~ Eric Greitens (Resilience)

  2. Great to see you here again!

    Sometimes when I get stuck on trying to feel grateful, thinking about what I enjoy gets me into the place where I want my mind to be. You got it!
