R is for Resilience
My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Marriage from A to Z in 55 Words. R is for Resilience in Marriage!
In a flash of a second, her world came tumbling down.
The circumstances were overwhelming and it was easy to sit on a heap of disappointment and despair.
‘How long would this last’, she mused.
She found her back up against the wall
And she found it to be a good place to push off.
A Word to the Wise
The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.― Nelson Mandela

Your post gives an example of how human beings often surprise themselves by the unbelievable strength and resilience they display in the face of crisis.

I am going to remember that one, “When your back is against the all, it’s a good place to push off!” Excellent observation.

Superb 55er. Often in extreme circumstances we find that inner resilience which helps us get through! Great quotes too!

How important it is to be open, and resilient to accept the changes that life brings for us !! As usual, crispy and crunchy post!

Every relationship needs a dose of this quality – resilience. A good word for R post for this series on marriage. Nicely penned.
April 21, 2014 2:32 pm|
So true that in the face of adversity we find an inner strength we never knew we had.
April 21, 2014 2:33 pm|
That quote is so fitting! Lovely one, Shilpa. As always 🙂
April 21, 2014 3:11 pm|
Very true. We must never give up. There is always a wall to help us in distress.
April 21, 2014 3:39 pm|
So very true!

I was also planning to write about Resilience in my series today…Yes, there is no other alternative to remain in the game in this survival-for-fittest world. Vivekananda has told to considers failures are the pillars of success and no point brooding over weakness but thinking of strength…

Inspiring post, Shilpa and what a better way to live life by getting up every time life knock us down. Lemme share these favorite lines:
Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you. You’re better than that!

How can one appreciate success and strive for it unless one has faced failure?

When the going gets tough, the tough get going.

Inspiring. If we didn’t fall and make mistakes, the ultimate victory wouldn’t be near as sweet. ♥

It is never easy to rise after you fall, but it is certainly not impossible. Wonderful lesson Shilpa.
April 22, 2014 8:44 am|

Relationships require resilience…I guess to be in a relationship requires that resilience to have moved on from the previous one. Nice post Shilpa! 🙂
