With all of the adversity that our friends and neighbors are facing in this latest disaster from Mother Nature or whatever RL is throwing your way - I am offering up some encouragement in the form of quotes. Be sure to contribute and share other words of wisdom and encouragement:)
Elizabeth SH, you and others are in our thoughts & prayers. And we are sending strength your way!
Resilience is the ability to work with adversity in such a way that one comes through it unharmed or even better for the experience. Resilience means facing life's difficulties with courage and patience - refusing to give up. It is the quality of character that allows a person or group of people rebound from misfortune, hardships and traumas.
Resilience is rooted in a tenacity of spirit-a determination to embrace all that makes life worth living even in the face of overwhelming odds. When we have a clear sense of identity and purpose, we are more resilient, because we can hold fast to our vision of a better future.
If you learn something from a defeat it isn`t a loss

You can get sympathy or you can get better but you can't get both. You can be in your comfort zone or you can have growth, but you can't have both. You can be interested or you can be sold-out-committed, but you can't entertain both. You can have excuses or have results, but you can't do both. Choose the path that develops your visceral fortitude.
