The reasons behind resilience.

Resilience is written on my arm for a reason – for many reasons…


An icebreaker in conversation to explain a journey.

A reminder of the lessons learned along the way.


A quick glance to gain the strength I know is possible.

A deep long stare to lose the negativity in which I tend to drown.


A symbol of a woman doing as well as possible under all the circumstances life has presented her.

An indication of the incredible people around whom she surrounds herself – those who encourage and inspire her to bounce back from the scary, from the sad, from the uncertainty.


Resilience is just a word, but the word means the world to me.
