Resilient

“We all carry within us: supreme strength, the fullness of wisdom, unquenchable joy.  It is never thwarted, and cannot be destroyed.”

~ Huston Smith

I found this quote and it reminded me how often I get overwhelmed and discouraged, and it also reminded me that we all have inside of us what it takes to overcome those things.  Life is tough, always throwing curve balls when you least expect it.  When we think things are going smoothly and great, that’s when we should be ready for something to come along and knock us off our feet.

But it doesn’t have to be the end of the world.  We have within us the strength, wisdom, and joy to become resilient.  We can choose to overcome and bounce back.  It’s all within us, it’s not for anyone else to decide!

So I think I will keep this quote with me, because it is quite easily for me to get to that place of overwhelming discouragement.  And I will let this continue to remind me in those times that there is nothing that I cannot handle, nothing I cannot overcome.  I am resilient and in control!
