Big Resilience

Hello, Monday Motivator fans!

I am back from my extended break of focusing on my Wellness Pillar. [Why was I gone in the first place?]

It feels good to be back in the saddle writing again after a long break while recovering from my brain surgery. Now that I am back, I want to continue with our theme for 2014 whereby monthly topics revolve around My BIG Life concepts.

For November, I have selected BIG resilience. Obviously this is something I have been focusing on and working hard at embracing the past several months. To be honest, some days I feel highly resilient and other days I do not. I have personally learned over many years, that resiliency is NOT about . . .

  • Never falling off your mountain
  • Life being perfect
  • Always being courageous
