Our outlook on life greatly determines our resilience. If you have no reason or purpose to bounce back from a situation, what is your motivation to get up? Being able to get through these past six months has nothing to do with being a good person or being strong. The strength has come from the people around me. The ability to get up every morning comes from purpose. That purpose is driven by the hope that each new day brings something wonderful. It is that outlook on life that has given me the resilience to live life. To learn to truly measure each day not by minutes or seconds, but by the memories made, the laughter heard, and those moments where a smile becomes contagious.
