Resilience is a word that has become quite popular in recent years as a mark of quality in a person. You could argue even that its meaning has been somewhat devalued through over use. However it is a quality that I admire as it reflects a depth of character and capability in a person. It is a gift for all ages, both young and old, because it comes from our ability to learn from life’s lessons and experiences but age certainly helps.
Lucy Hone’s reflections on resilience are inspiring in terms of the wisdom she shares but even more so because of the challenges that she has had to deal with in her life.
I hope you take the time to listen to her Ted Talk on “the 3 Secrets of resilient people”
