The Resilience Breakthrough, Part 3

Resilience BreakthroughResiliency is the ability to bounce back when you have every reason to shut down – but you fight on! – Christian Moore, LCSW

Commentary  (Repost from June 2016):

I am reading this book for a potential project in the program for which I am employed.  Recently, I read a public Facebook post on June 26th, 2016, 7:33am, by my second mother.  Her husband went to school with my mother.  She shared a number of challenges that speak to the reason many would shut down:  The lost of two children (her oldest daughter and her only son), then a car wreck that included her other children, the loss of a father, surviving breast cancer, blood clots in both lungs, then her baby too experienced blood clots in both lungs and through all this she eventually graduated from college. When I read the definition of resiliency above, I had to stop to publish my thoughts as I immediately thought of her.  She has absolutely demonstrated resiliency.  She is the epitome of resiliency. Period, Case-Closed!
