9 am Dialog: “PLASTICS – How Each of Us Can Cut Down on this Pollution”, Elaine Held
February Monthly Theme: RESILIENCE
This thing we call “failure” is not the falling down, but the staying down.
Resilience is accepting your new reality, even if it’s less good than the one you had before.
Anyone can slay a dragon, he told me, but try waking up every morning and loving the world all over again.
Resilient people do not bounce back from hard experiences; they find healthy ways to integrate them into their lives.
If your heart is broken, make art with the pieces.
You got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, know when to walk away, and when to run.
[Resilience] is to watch a gathering darkness until all light is swallowed up completely without the power to interfere or bring a halt. Then in that darkness, to continue one’s journey with one’s footsteps guided by the illumination of remembered radiance.
She who has not been tried, what does she know?
It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it.
