My cat, Suki has been an “indoor cat” since last Fall, when he was bitten by an animal and had a serious infection. He is a bit challenged (a rescue cat), so we decided to keep him in. Recently, it’s been easy, he seemed to run away whenever we opened the back door to the deck. So, thinking that this was his MO, after a lovely dinner of bbq scallops
( inspiration from Facebook or Twitter last night) and drinks, I was carrying dishes, opened the door, and Suki ran out. Instinctively, with all best interests in mind, I stomped my foot down on him, he ran inside causing me to fall and have a perfectly aligned “rolling like ball yoga-pitates move with plates on my abs, and thank G landed on my left buttock, not the one I had a cortisone shot in yesterday (triple ouch!). I scrambled up and asked where did he go??, was reassured inside, probably in his safe space under A’s bed..and then I assessed my physical damages- none! miracle. So I asked Steve, who witnessed all, what the message was- he said, if he really gets out, he’ll be back to eat; and if you see him at the door, pause and shoo him away before you proceed to enter. OK ! Happy Memorial Day Weekend, everyone~

Resilience defined in Webster’s New World Dictionary © 1982:
1. “springing back into shape, position, etc. after being stretched, bent or compressed.”
2. “recovering strength, spirits, etc. quickly.”
Being resilient in body, mind and spirit is key to being happy and successful in all areas of life. Emotionally, it’s the opposite of being “stuck in a rut” and it’s about being positive. Physically, it can translate to strength and flexibility. Spiritually it can indicate faith with the ability to maintain hope in tumultuous times. It’s about staying centered and grounded and making “right” choices.
So, you may be asking yourself, how does one maintain emotional-spiritual equilibrium and resiliency when things can be unpredictable and often in crisis mode? It’s not easy, and takes some work. It’s easy to create positive patterns and habits when life is going smoothly. It can be quite challenging while being swept away by negative forces. A good mentor/coach and practice is important, and the practice will create a “spill-over” effect into life situations.
Many people, including myself, have learned how to be more resilient. There are skill sets of meditation, relaxation breathing, visualization and “tapping” that all add into helping an individual maintain focus and be positive. Exercising, eating healthfully and having healthy relationships are naturally fortifying. Most people are not born resilient, but do have the capacity to learn how to be this way
You are the only one who can control your attitude. By focusing on what is strong and enduring and seeing your potential, you can take calculated risks and overcome challenges. It takes an open, creative mind free from anxiety to pick up on opportunities. They are out there ready to be accessed by your positive and resilient radar.
