Resilience is one of my favorite superpowers to have and to see in others. It is powerful and humble at the same time, it builds over experiencesI. It helps with just about everything, like bacon or puppies. But resilience often mimics our keys. We know we have it; we just forget where we put it. For today, and particularly for our challenging and ever-changing world: let’s remind ourselves, and build. Think for a moment about a time when a “door closed” in your life. A loss, a missed opportunity, a heartbreak. I do believe that when one door closes another opens but we still have to have the strength to go through it. We were resilient not by being passive—but by BEING RESILIENT. After that door closed, how did you move on? What strengths did you prove to yourself? What happened when you went through the door that opened? Let talk about that today—and build resilience for ourselves and others.

Hi Michael I need to be more . I try to stay positive but can’t all of the time as it’s too draining.

That’s so hard...and I’m sorry you’re drained. At times like these I don’t try to “be positive”. I have to give myself a break, and gently restore my energy. Positive is for others; my energy is mine. How do you restore yourself?

First Joanne...I’d like to invite you to take this time for you and only you. We’re your allies. We got you. Let us give a little energy over. Don’t try to do it all by yourself.

Love those dreams. Mine is a quiet afternoon watching baseball in a park. Or really not watching baseball. Having a beer and a dog with my amazing friends (all Yankees fans) and soaking up the sun.

I know all the time for me was like me and my dad were fighting he didn’t go to my wedding night I was really hurt and upset and I didn’t have the best relationship with him and we were fighting and then he got really sick and he was about to die and I made the decision to go see him and I made the peace with him right before he died he couldn’t speak to me but he grabbed my hand and I seem tears in his eyes and he rub my hand so I know in his way he was saying that he love me

You did SO much for him. So much love and admiration to push through that pain for him. That’s resilience.
