Your Path to Resilient Living


You don't find your path, you create it!

“There will be a path to achieving anything worthwhile. There will also be unexpected obstacles along the way and you have the power to choose whether they become stumbling blocks or stepping stones.”

Emotionally Resilient Living is a blog about building pathways to a stronger, more resilient life, a journey that puts you unapologetically in the driver’s seat and in control of the quality and course of your journey.

What does emotional resilience mean to you? Run a quick search for the term and you'll be presented with millions of hits, most depicting resilience as a little bouncing ball that promises to return you to a comfortable place of familiarity after a crisis.

But it is so much more!

Resilience isn't an umbrella to be reserved for a rainy day, and you don't need to be facing a major life change or hardship to decide that you're ready to grow stronger and more confident. Building your capacity for resilience is as much about prevention and growth as it is recovery. 

Resilient Living is about having the willingness to take full responsibility for your life, and doing that demands clarity and intention. Understanding not only what you need to do to become the driver in your journey, but why you're doing it. 

This represents a dynamic lifestyle choice and the basis for creating that sense of control that we all long for. 


Resilient Living is the book you need to become the driver in your life journey as you increase your capacity for emotional resilience. This isn't an umbrella to be kept in the closet for a rainy day, but a mindset and collection of skills and behaviors that will help you every day!



The past year has been rough on everyone, but if we want to find ourselves in a vastly different space 365 days from today it's going to be up to each of us to make that happen for ourselves. Anyone who tells you differently is profiting off your fearful ignorance of the truth.

"The greatest danger is not the experience of adversity, but rather getting so used to the struggle that you fear recovery because you can no longer remember who you are without it. Your experiences shape you but do not define you." ~Author Unknown
