You Can Do Hard Things
A house needs a solid foundation to stand on or it will fall apart.
So do we.
Resiliency is the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties. It comes from having a solid foundation. Rather than wood and concrete, our foundations are based on experience and knowing that we can come back from whatever life throws our way.
You can do hard things. You’ve done it before. Hell, we’re all coming through a pandemic right now!
When was the last time you thought about or reminded yourself that you are resilient?
We move through achievements, joy, and even difficulty without much reflection. We are just on to the next thing.
What if instead we take a minute to acknowledge all that we have accomplished? Slow down and appreciate ourselves and our efforts without always having to rush on to the next task, project, or job?
When you consider all that you have done, you’re pretty kick ass.
Think of this as a bank of accomplishments that you can draw on anytime you are rushing or reacting. You can take a breath, go in, remind yourself of your resiliency and draw on your foundation for strength.
Then you can respond from that place, rather than reacting.
And if you really want to start solidifying that for yourself, share with me what you will use to remind yourself that you are resilient. I can't wait to hear!
