Resilience

Resilience is knowing the wrongs you have done and taking responsibility for them.

resilience is wanting to call someone you know you shouldn’t, and not calling them.
it’s calling a friend instead

It’s giving space, it’s loving from afar.

It’s finding a need someone has and fulfilling that need.

It’s creating something beautiful in spite of, or because of the pain.

Sometimes, it’s just taking a nap.

It’s the emotional strength it takes to carry on, using tools you didn’t realize you had.

It’s trying something new, not being afraid even though you are shaking inside.

It’s accepting what is.

It’s changing what needs to be changed.

It’s fighting for this thing called life.

Are we listening now?

This from 2018, could have been written today.  Features dancer,  Quentin Robinson  from Missoula, MT. I once came across him dancing in the park. I felt lucky, as if I had gotten into a dance performance for free.

And we love you,  John Prine
