Be the driver in your life journey!




No matter which path you choose to take in life, it will inevitably come down to what is surely one of the most important decisions you will ever make - will you be the passenger or the driver for the journey ...

Resilient living is about building forward momentum and growing through life's challenges!

Marquita Herald is an author, resilience coach and founder of Emotionally Resilient Living. She's also an unapologetic workaholic who loves red wine, rock n' roll, road trips (and car dancing!), peanut butter cookies and (especially) a dog named Lucy.

This is a place for people who are ready to make the courageous choice not to be defined by fate, circumstances, or the opinions of others. It is a journey that puts YOU unapologetically in charge of your own life.

You'll see no talk about "bouncing back" here because that is limiting.  Resilient living is about building forward momentum and growing through life's challenges.

Many people spend years, if not a lifetime trying to find their purpose, their path in life. It is so important to understand that there is no one right path or even a wrong path.

There is only your path and you create it with every action, every choice you make .... you've been creating the path you are on right now since the very first decision you ever made. 

If you are ready to create a new path, or just take a different direction, I hope you'll join our community so that I can help you along the way.

FOCUS 21 - Moving Forward

Every single person I know is feeling beat to hell. Everyone I know is a little bit or a lot depressed, or profoundly anxious. It’s been a long, intense year filled with uncertainty, disruption, anger, and profound sadness.

Whatever you’re feeling … you are not alone.
