DON'T WISH FOR AN EASY WAY. DEVELOP THE STRENGTH TO WEATHER THE STORMS.
Are you ready for the storm?Photography credit @lionplusl ~
Resilient people have a sense of hope and trust in the world. They believe in the basic goodness and decency of people, trusting that things will turn out all right in the end.
How well we weather the tempests in life, how quickly we bounce back from adversities and calamities, depends largely on our level of resilience.
Research on resilience has shown us that people who cannot deal with their emotions may become more narrow-minded and rigid in their view of themselves and their place in the world. A lack of understanding of our personal histories -- what Aristotle called the habits that serve us and the habits that don't serve us -- keeps us from adapting when new stresses affect us. We fall back on old thought patterns, old behaviors that keep us spinning our wheels and stuck in the muck and mire of dysfunction. You know the scenario: Different situation, different set of circumstance, same old lousy outcome.
But, when we reflect upon and come to terms with our personal history and take steps to adjust those undermining attitudes and habits, our resiliency -- our ability to bounce back quickly -- strengthens.
Resilience is not a trait that people either have or do not have. The factors that make for resilience, and the characteristics and skills of resiliency, can be learned and developed in anyone. "Remember the storm is a good opportunity for the pine and the cypress to show their strength and their stability."

After a week of rest and lots of stretching and @mypowerdot on my back, I felt good enough to pull. At @barbellbrigadegym for @hviiibrandgoods photoshoot... Wasn’t sure how strong I’d feel, so I planned on sets of 5 until it got heavy or I felt my back tightening up. Everything felt fine and I finished with this 600x11, I thought it was 10 reps🤷🏾♂️Glad I’m not totally out of shape and transitioning to high volume should be smooth👌🏽

Being single doesn't mean you're weak; it means you're strong enough to wait for what you deserve.
