Being Resilient

- POSTED ON: Oct 12, 2012

Being Resilient is a very good thing.

What is Resilience?

“Resilience is an individual's tendency to cope with stress and adversity. This coping may result in the individual "bouncing back" to a previous state of normal functioning, or simply not showing negative effects.”

“Resilience is that quality which allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever.”

“Resilience is a dynamic process whereby individuals exhibit positive behavioral adaptation when they encounter significant adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or even significant sources of stress.”

Today, for me, personal resilience means that after overeating yesterday, this morning, I have been able to encourage myself to put forth my best dieting efforts, yet again.

I enjoyed this video, although I am a “cat person” rather than a "dog person",  Perhaps you will too.

Resilience I have got. Lose all my weight without dificulty, gain it all back with ease, and do it again! I am just like Sisyphus in greek mythology. Love the challenge! The dog is great! I'm sure you will see that little poodle on Americas Got Talent next year.

             John, I certainly understand the issue. In my lifetime, I've done that several times myself. Gaining it back with ease that is. That part about losing all my weight without difficulty has NEVER been true for me. Having watched you lose that weight before, and even maintain if for quite some time, I KNOW you have lots of resilience. =D
