Finding Your Anchor Within
“Nothing can dim the light which shines from within.” – Maya Angelou
Resilience is often thought of as the ability to withstand the difficulties of life. This definition only speaks to surviving life; it says nothing about thriving.
We are socialized to seek happiness externally; this is what fuels capitalism. In doing so, we are often left feeling less resilient as the storms of life dictate how we act, feel and live,
Although the focus on mindfulness has been on the rise, we have become increasingly unmindful. This leaves us with relationships that are often disconnected at best and at worst feeling isolated and alone.
