RESILIENCY IS BEING OKAY.

I have worked for nearly two decades researching, teaching and advocating to come upon this idea. Today will be okay. We are okay. And being okay is enough. Our survival rate for difficult things is 100%. Despite all the noise that says okay is not enough, being okay is the heart of authentic resiliency. Being resilient means, we are okay during a set back, challenge or a crisis and we are okay on the other side of it. How we get to and stay okay varies but the practice of continuing to push forward, even when it is hard, is a choice. Resiliency lives within us all. The only difference between those who can keep getting up after adversity and those who struggle with it, is knowing how to draw on this resource in times of need. This can be taught. Let me show how.






LET’S STAY CONNECTED

Community matters. I am looking forward to connecting with you. I welcome the opportunity to learn alongside you and explore this work. Often times, I like to share some posts from where I might be, some in-the-moment thoughts I have, amazing people I have met and learned from, or simply a puppy post! My intention is to use socials as a means of sharing, reflecting, and encouraging. It is not a highlight reel rather a tool to start conversations and build a safe community for discussion. This isn’t for everyone, but I hope there might be something in there that resonates with you that might make your day, or that moment, a little better. Feel free to join me on this journey.






SUMMER: FINDING JOY THROUGH HUMOUR

A key cornerstone of wellness is knowing how to have fun. The art of cultivating laughter, pleasure, and play and knowing how to enjoy moments of merriment is what resilient people do. A big side-splitting belly laugh feels good! Finding humour in even a dark situation brings levity and builds connection.
