Pathways to Resilient Living

Emotionally Resilient Living - Ref Library


I created this guide to Resilient Living to provide an overview of what it takes to build a strong and resilient life.  

The theme of pathways represents a key defining characteristic of the highly resilient individual, a passion for self-determination that includes creating their own path in life.

They believe that no matter what obstacles or detours they may encounter, if they just keep going, they will find – or make – a way.

Often what prevents people from developing this mindset is the widely held misconception that we each have a particular path in life and we will only be truly fulfilled when we find it.

Some people will spend a lifetime on that search.

When they can’t find that one right path, they try another and another until they eventually become discouraged and give up and just try to do the best that they can with whatever life happens to send their way.

If there is only ONE thing you take away from finding Emotionally Resilient Living, I want it to be the knowledge that there is no right path; there isn’t even a wrong path.

There is only your path, and it’s up to YOU to create it.

It may not lead to the place you originally intended to go, in fact it may lead to an entirely new reality, but it may well turn out to be far better than you ever could have imagined.
