reSLience… a.k.a. resilience

it's what lies within that really matters

Monthly Archives: July 2009

Man has never made any material as resilient as the human spirit.

~ Bern Williams


It is too hot to think too hard! 100 degrees by 10 am and knowing AZ temperatures are hotter than Dubai make me realize most of what is going on may simply be a mirage these days.

One thing is always for certain. You can count on yourself. You alone are responsible for you… good bad or otherwise… Friendship can be based on lots of things. Hopefully you don’t delude yourself into believing some are friends when they are merely a mirage… this time of year… in this kind of heat… it makes people do funny things. Forgiveness and friendship go hand in hand. They are 2 sides to the same coin. Yin and Yang. You can’t go back, but you can move on. You don’t have decide to move in different directions, but time moves on, as do circumstances.

Don’t kid yourself and count on anything other than you – is what I remind myself time and time again. Pray for those who have caused frustration and hurt… they are chasing after other dreams… wish them well and move on. (I use this same philosophy in bad traffic with other drivers around me 🙂 )


Clear out the clutter… there is an answer amidst the chaos… its ok…
There are things much bigger than any of us… there are answers to things big and small all around us. Sometimes it is about surrendering to the chaos and letting go. It is in that letting go that I am reminded over and over again that ultimately there is a bigger plan and I need to stay open to it.

Change is a given. I love the part in this song about counting your blessings and soon you’ll forget all the rest around you that was wrong. Life is so uncertain… but one thing is most certain… and that is God is in us, around us, and here… always.

The control we seem to think we have is an illusion. There are always 2 sides to every coin, as the song says… always… you can’t have one without the other. Which side of the coin do you choose to focus on? It is a choice. Its a personal decision. It can make a world of difference depending on which side you allow to be heads up in your life.

Mondays… meditating commutes… unfathomable heat all around… serenity inside the concrete jungle.
