... on resilience ...

Think about how life often gets us to a place where we can finally slow down, exhale, and be. Sometimes, we arrive at this place on our own and sometimes, well, we arrive begrudgingly. Life gets the best of us and we’re there looking at life from the bottom, or at least that is what we think in the movement. In those moments of quiet, stillness, with ourselves, we wrestle with our inner-knowing. We wrestle with the depths of who we are and who we are created to be. In those moments of stillness, full of lamentation, we find out who we really are. It is our resilience, in the midst of stillness, that shapes the journey that lies ahead.
