Resilience is made of Vision
Creative vision doesn't require living to work with your hands or having the most clever idea.
The on-going making of you is miraculous. If that alone is not creativity - what is?
Consider your childhood playfulness. It's time to map your path back. Recapture what makes you - you. Resilience lives there.
Resilience is made of Passion
Hope wakes us each day.
Have you considered what you hope for?
What you do in your spare time?
What lights you up when you speak?
Passion lives in these spaces.
Hope points to that which makes us feel alive.
Resilience is made of Order
A beautiful life is built out of thoughtful decisions, happy accidents, and unexpected gifts along the way.
Each of us is tossed into a free fall at times. The question is how do you cope with yours?
Your path to a wiser, stronger - more resilient you is before you and within your heart.
Start by dwelling on the three steps below.
Quiet life down. Presence has power. You have the chance to make moments mean more. Silence your mind, block needless external noise, and sit quietly with yourself. It’ll be uncomfortable for a while. Once used to it - allow yourself to sit in sadness. Observe your experience. With time, you can feel your heart swell with renewed purpose.
Create Cool Stuff
Creativity is key to what you seek. Pieces of you fell away. It’s possible you deliberately put them away to be efficient in a world that favors you proving your worth over and over and over. You might find yourself asked to justify your work or skill set to assuage the anxiety of someone who struggles with their own self-esteem. You could be required to justify an opinion or boundary to someone jockeying for power. These walls are mirages.
Decide to own the place you stand and you get the privilege of living life as your heart would have it. You are worthy of taking up space. You are not less kind or open to others by expressing yourself. The world needs your good. Who you are is in the equation. Ask for what you want. Others benefit knowing a more real you. You are worthy of being fully, wholly you.
