Resilience

Resilience

1 : the capability of a strained body to recover its size and shape after deformation caused especially by compressive stress
2 : an ability to recover from or adjust easily to misfortune or change

Was told this morning by yet another person I'm very resilient and it will carry me through med school and into practice. I hope so!

For me, life is not about how bad things are but how blessed I've been in my life. I've certainly seen my share of unfortunate events and devastating tragedy, but I seem to focus on the good: my family, friends, new friends, and goals which makes those unfortunate events so less tragic.

Resiliency seems to equate with finding the blessings in life, or finding the rainbows after a storm.

Resilience - a new word to post on my daily/weekly reminder list.

Make it a great day and a better weekend!
