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.

SYNCHRONICITY-SERENDIPITY-SYNERGY are wonderfully timed scenarios-circumstances; it’s fabulous that the English language provides us with these feel-good words…
Lately, my career/collaborations as well as family events and relationships are feeling that way/all good! My current involvement with The R.E.D. Team: Recharge-Empower-Develop You and Your Family (for additional insight view http://www.balanceandpower.com/events.php) is a perfect example:  as I placed myself in different Long Island networking events, my intention being to meet powerful people to collaborate with :), I newly connected with my three wonderful R.E.D. Team colleagues..and subsequently learned that we are of the four Eastern/astrological signs: Earth, Wind, Fire, Water. In case you’re wondering, I’m the bull-Taurus-Earth gal.

As for family, we had a wonderful celebration of our daughter Jessica’s marriage to Mark Peachy of England in a wonderful Long Island venue.  They’re living  in London, near the soccer stadium where Arsenal team plays,  in a recently restored area in Islington.  There were lots of friend/family history at our celebration,  including Mom’s Brooklyn friends whom she hasn’t been able to see in many years- and  lived in our neighborhood when I was growing up..and my friend from public school -present at the party- who knows them as well..and my brother who “played over” at their homes.. Of course my daughter Ariel and her boyfriend Xabi residing in Madrid are highlights of this time as well!   You can read more about my former personal “empty-nested” experience and giving the children “roots and wings” in my new publication SOAR!™ with Resilience.
