Resilience

The secret to resilience

Is not being closed off

It’s not avoiding negative events altogether

It’s not “playing it safe”

Instead

It’s being open

Open to all experiences

Letting sad emotions come and go

Like the tides in the sea

And holding on

To the happy memories

In fact creating

Small happy moments every day

With your loved ones

Afterall they are the ones

Who can pick you up and hold you close

And nourish you with love

When your heart was broken

No matter how small these happy moments may be

They are enough

To remind your soul

That you are okay

We are together in this

And everything will be fine

  1. Your thoughts on being open to the things that happen in our lives and facing negative events spoke to me. It reminded me of some of the challenges I had this week that required me to focus on finding the solutions versus focusing on the problem. Well done job on expressing how we can put resilience into practice.
