Welcome to the 3 Part Series on Resiliency
Part 1: Spring Back
1. the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.
2. the ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity.
First of the three-part series – SPRING BACK.
This means to spring back into who you are; Emotionally, physically & spiritually.
So how do you SPRING BACK?
One: Cultivating Joy
It is VERY easy in a world, especially as women, to forget about what brings us JOY. I truly believe that in the heart of springing back, it has to start with a joyful heart and a joy-filled life.
This can be a journey from some of us, as we have often deprived ourselves of unearthing what joy means to us. Maybe a season of motherhood, illness, hard times, or over-w0rkings leaves us with little left in the tank. But to flip us quickly, finding and aligning with JOY in our lives is crucial.
What do you love to do?
What have you been putting off doing / learning / trying?
What lights up your life?
Flipping our thinking out of the inner-critic / scarcity / anxious mindset can be a mindset in gratitude. I would encourage you, if you have kiddos, to start with this practice as well. If the options below feel a bit hard, start with your kiddos. That can look like a gratitude jar, decorated with them, that you can place moments into from each day.
Write 2-4 things nightly that you’re grateful for before bed
Create a social media # to follow your gratitude musings
Choose gratitude over criticism – starting with yourself
How are you inviting the strengths of your faith into your healing? How are you nourishing your soul deeply in this season? I know, that hands down, my faith and journey uncovering it deeper has been the most nourishing and profound things for my healing. It has enabled me, when I felt like I couldn’t get through it anymore, to know that there was divine light for me.
Where can you cultivate more faith in yourself, your beliefs?
How does your faith support you in springing back?
