Resiliency 9/9/21

Recently, I was introduced to a lovely seasoned citizen. As we spoke, she mentioned that she had had a few rough months lately in which over a seven-month period, five of her close family and friends had passed away. Although some of the departures were expected and some were unexpected each death was unwelcome and untimely. While she is saddened by each of the losses and deeply impacted, she still manages to have a positive outlook and a resiliency about her. In her own words:

"I wake up every morning and I say to myself, ‘today is going to be a good day and it will be better than yesterday.'"
