This month’s theme: RESILIENCE

Articles of the Month

Developing Resilience – We should have the courage to go after our dreams, despite the very real risk that we’ll fail in some way or another. Being resilient means that when we do fail, we bounce back, we have the strength to learn the lessons we need to learn, and we can move on to bigger and better things.

How Do You Bounce Back from Setbacks? – It’s easy to think that someone who is down would naturally want to take any opportunity to get off the floor. But sometimes, it feels like we belong on the floor, or that there is no point in arising only to get knocked down again. Just remember, those who seem resilient have gotten that way through practice.

“As the new year unfolds, let your focus be on bouncing back from challenges with a renewed spirit. Embrace the setbacks as stepping stones to success and growth.”


“In the canvas of the new year, paint resilience as your masterpiece. Let every challenge be a stroke of courage, and every setback a brushstroke of determination.”


“As the calendar turns, let your mindset shift towards resilience. See every obstacle as an opportunity to bounce back, and every setback as a setup for a greater comeback in the coming year.”


Act of Kindness

Create a series of uplifting and supportive notes for someone going through a challenging time. These notes could be handwritten or digital, and they should convey messages of encouragement, strength, and resilience. Consider highlighting specific qualities or achievements that showcase their ability to overcome obstacles. Leave these notes in places where the person will find them throughout their day, such as in their workspace, on their mirror, or in their bag. The consistent reminders of their resilience can boost their spirits and provide ongoing encouragement.
