Over the last two weeks we looked at what helps us with resilience. In the first week we looked at flexibility – adaptability and then we looked at balance.
Today in class we started on the third element in resilience – strength. We talked about how strength is not necessarily a rock or a loud voice. Strength more often is flexibility and balance. Knowing when to let go and when to be soft – flexibility. Knowing when to stand strong. I dedicated class to my mom – Joan Elizabeth (Egen) Vorster. The strongest person I know. And we talked about Mahatma Ghandi. The impact he had on the world. And just like my mom, never a harsh word uttered. Ever.
At end of class – quoted: “Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is that quiet little voice at the end of the day that says: I will try again tomorrow.”
Sending love ♥
