I wonder if many of you feel like the way that I do about change. If there is one thing that’s reliable, it’s CHANGE. At my age, I have learned that change is hard but it can be really good. Sometimes I go through change kicking and screaming. I dig in my heels and say I will not allow this change to happen. Inevitably, it will happen and when it does, how do I handle it? Key word RESILIENCE.
The American Psychological Association's Road to Resilience Initiative identifies 10 ways to build resilience:
Avoid seeing crisis as insurmountable problems
Accept that change is a part of living
Move toward your goals
Take decisive actions
Look for opportunities for self-discovery
Nurture a positive view of yourself
Keep things in perspective
Maintain a hopeful outlook
Take care of yourself
Of these my favorite is #1, make connections. Close friends and family can help you accomplish the other 9 ways to build resilience!
