I AM Resilient

Resilience is about making lemonade! If you can’t bounce back, you don’t have what it takes to survive. Positive motivation is fuel to transform lemons. Write down or memorize your favorite quotes, scriptures, and affirmations. Use them on sour days.

“Resilience is accepting your new reality, even if it’s less good than the one you had before. You can fight it, you can do nothing but scream about what you’ve lost, or you can accept that and try to put together something that’s good.”
― Elizabeth Edwards (quote from Goodreads)

resilient: (1) Able to become strong, healthy, or successful again after something bad happens. (2) Able to return to an original shape after being pulled, stretched, pressed, bent, etc. (definition from merriam-webster.com)

  1. Great post! Yes, it’s all about being able to turn those sour moments into sweet moments. I always keep my inspirational verses and quotes handy to inspire me when I’m feeling down and I pray, pray, pray.
    “Happiness keeps you sweet, trials keep you strong, sorrows keep you human, failures keep you humble and God keeps you going.”
    Have a wonderful day! ❤

  2. These just keep getting better! I love that simple term…”sour days.” We do all have them, and we need to be able to draw on some positive and Godly strength to put the “ship upright!” Great thoughts, my dear!

      • So well put. Now I’m thirsty…lol! We need to continue to “taste that the Lord is good.”

        And I mean no “pun” in saying that, but it does tie in with the idea that Jesus has made better days for all who come to Him.

        Have a wonderful weekend!
