Being resilient refers to our capacity to recover quickly from difficulties or obstacles that come our way. The more I age, the more I realize that many of the obstacles I experience originate in my limited thinking or lack of belief in myself and/or my abilities.
When I catch these culprits and dig deeper into their source I begin to understand that these beliefs come about earlier in life in an attempt to be helpful for my survival or protection.
Once understood, I thank it for doing its job and then proceed to re-write the “job” description to a new and improved belief that better serves me and the greater good of all that I do.
Like babies learning to walk, this month’s mandala encourages us to stand back up each time we fall, dust ourselves off, assess what we learned, and then proceed with a new-and-improved plan of action.
Persistence and resilience only come from having been given the chance to work though difficult problems. ~ Gever Tulley
