“Resilience is to always be true to yourself”
Definition of resilience: the ability of a person to adjust to or recover readily from illness, adversity or major life changes.
This is what you read when you look at this word up on the dictionary: a straightforward, simple and impersonal explanation.
However, abstract words carry a deeper meaning, an emotional meaning which varies from person to person.
Resilience is hard to be defined with words. It can only be explained based on how you feel when you think resilience. Feelings are hard to be put into words. They cannot be labelled or put into categories.
Only you know the true meaning of this word.
So here is what it means to me:
Resilience is to stay the course when you know that you make decisions and choices based on the circumstances and information that you have in any now moment.
Resilience is to know what is best for you and therefore having the courage to say no or yes to others.
Resilience is to resist the noises that come from the outside world, especially the noises that create fear.
Resilience is to listen to others with your heart and your intuition so you know what to accept and what to ignore.
Resilience is to trust yourself, to believe in yourself regardless of what is going on around you. Your circumstances should lead the way in any now moment.
Resilience is to surround yourself with people who have your best interest at heart.
Surround yourself with people who encourage you, motivate you, support you to achieve your goals whatever they may be.
Resilience is to know that when life happens in a way that you didn’t expect it or even when you didn’t want it to happen in a certain way, you know that there is always the next now moment whereby you can do things differently to get the results you want.
Above all, it is to always be true to yourself.
I’m aware that this is how I feel when I think about it. I’m also aware that all I’ve written here may or may not resonate with you.
It doesn’t really matter.
What matters is how you feel when you think resilience.
So let’s take action right now.
Be aware of how you feel when you think about it and remind yourself how you feel about it as often as you need.
If you are wondering how you do this, I can tell that you do it by feeling it.
