Bloomin' Tuesday

I'm always amazed at the resiliency of certain plants. It could be 20 degrees outside and in the midst of a mountain of snow a sprig stands tall. It's an amazing thing.

People can be much the same. The resilient individual seems better equipped to resist stress and adversity, cope with change or uncertainty, and recover faster and more wholly from traumatic or unexpected events in life. I've known people who stand tall under adversity and exhibit a resilient, irrepressible spirit. It's a wonder.

This week we had our first significant snowfall, and as I was shoveling I noticed a few examples of resilient willpower. Hope you enjoy...
