Life's Lessons #11 BE Resilient

adjective: resilient
  1. 1.
    (of a substance or object) able to recoil or spring back into shape after bending, stretching, or being compressed.

  2. I am someone who tries to remember to bounce back. To get up when I fall down. To keep going if I need to stop and rest awhile.

  1. I am someone who tries to BE flexible. To laugh with myself when I get too serious. To bend without breaking and roll with the winds.

  1. I am someone who tries NOT to forget that Life is full of seasons. Sometimes the season du jour is prickly or bogs me down. The point of the thing is to BE carried but NOT swept away by Life.

  1. I am someone who tries taking Life a breath and a day at a time. Sometimes this is nearly impossible, simply too itchy NOT to scratch. Nonetheless that's the deal I've made and I respect myself enough [finally] to keep my agreements, especially with myself.

These are some random thoughts about BEing Resilient. I've been struggling a bit more than I'd like with my mood lately. I have been quick to take offense and I am pulling banana after banana out of my trunk just to slip and fall on peel after peel.

Sometimes Life is just more uphill than level. Sometimes it goes too fast and others so slow it is like watching paint dry. However, my part is always to BE Resilient, NOT to let everything unravel over some momentary inconvenience.

Yup! Life is inconvenient! Too easy and it leaves you unprepared. ;)
