#94 Bouncing Back After Hard Times
Hi Judy, It takes time and hard work . . . but in the long run, I think, it was worth the effort. Take care.
Thank you for sharing your story. Love the 5 pillars of resilience! They ring true for me. I am actually reading a book right now, "Ageless Body, Timeless Mind" by Deepak Chopra, which speaks to your point about aging not being a disease but a reflection of how we (do or don't) take care of ourselves and our stress. Love the timing of this article!
This was especially meaningful to me. "The trauma of those years defined who I am today." I had no idea what grief meant until I lost my mom , who was my best friend for 74 years. The trauma of helping her through her dying was the worst thing we both had ever experienced. Now five years after her death, I am doing well, but not a day goes by without my having a "chat" with her. I can testify that the trauma of those months and the loss DO define who I am today. I am changed -- kinder, I think, more understanding of others' pain, appreciative of life. Thank you, as always, for your fine insights and your willingness to share your personal story, Janice
Good insights from all places, hope you continue to do as well as you have with all that you learned. You have got this going forward! Enjoyed reading thank you!
I have not reached the point you are at. This give me hope I may get there someday. Blessed Be
