shutterstock_147905000One of the important components of resilience that I am learning to practice more and more is that of acceptance. Taking in my experiences as they come and allowing them to happen. Sometimes things need to change and I take action and other times things are out of my control and I have learned to sit with the experience – whether it’s comfortable or uncomfortable – and keep moving on.

My experience at this point in my life is that I have many wonderful things on my plate but, in fact, there are too many for me to give each its proper due. So, after much consideration and sitting with discomfort for awhile, I have decided that I am going to let Bounce Back! Develop Your Resiliency! go.

I have enjoyed being a part of the wonderful PsychCentral community and I hope to be a part of it again at some point in the future. But for now, I want to thank both the folks behind PsychCentral and you, the reader, for making this an exceptional part of my personal journey.

I hope that you’ve learned some helpful ways to bounce back in life and I invite you to continue following me on my personal blog, BounceYou’re welcome to join my community there and receive the free ebook, Bounce Back! 5 keys to survive and thrive through life’s ups and downs by clicking here.

Thanks again to John Grohol, Victoria Gigante, and all of the helpful people here at PsychCentral.

May you lead resilient, meaningful lives.
