Resilience - the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties. 
Quickly is not necessarily a prerequisite, recovery is...
The ability to recover is what you need to cultivate in order to MANIFEST. 
Traversing through the Covid-19 pandemic and navigating the multitude of people's reactions and behaviors requires a steady dose of resilience. In fact i will go so far as to say that there needs to be a steady diet of resiliency consumption as many people seem to be flying off the edge of the earth due to the surgence, resurgence, replications and variant multiplication of the Covid virus. Its like the world is descending into madness and there are little implosions occurring in pockets of the cities around the world. 

As the world implodes in little degrees, we see these manifestation in pockets. Groups of willfully defiant people marching in protests refusing to exercise precautions by wearing masks (anti-maskers) and practicing social distancing creating super spreaders. To other's disobeying no travel order and stay at home orders in preference of going out. Its like mass hysteria and the downward spiral seems insidious. In Toronto: 
  • One woman put a leash on her husband to walk him like a dog so she could go out during the stay at home order. She was fined in violation of the stay at home order. 
  1. In another incident a man confronting another man for not wearing a masks, punches him in the face breaking some of his teeth. 
  • At Walmart a man was arrested for assaulting an employee who asked him to wear a mask 
  1. in a grocery store a fatal shooting occurred that started out as to the police over a man refusing to wear a masks and in a fit of rage started assaulting people. 
  • A man was choked unconscious for not wearing a mask, in the video you can see him screaming, "i can't breathe, I can't breathe."
To say we need "Jesus" is an understatement as the safety measures, restrictions and fear takes a toll on our psyches. We have to find better ways of coping. Its not easy. I am mostly confined to my home (thankful that i have one), traveling through the city on for the essentials, medical appointments, groceries etc.). I am blessed in that in the mean time I am able to work from home. I am grateful to all things that enables me to be HERE, the breath of live, ability, mobility, vision, movement, music, books, family and friends. We must look at our blessings and not bow to our frustrations and limitations. Focus on what you have and not on what you don't have, on what you can do and not on what you can't do. Be thankful that we are alive and well as appose to the alternative, sick, dying or dead. 

Moment to Moment:
I do a lot of reading. I make a point to laugh a lot, outrageously, uproariously, unapologetically. I find something to smile about at the end of each day, even if it was a horrendous day.  If i experience difficulty finding that smile, i pick up my camera and go outside and take a snap of the universe at my finger tips. I pray, to keep my spirit up, to cultivate my resiliency with positive affirmations and to keep hope alive because the alternative is not an option for me. 

What are you doing to keep yourself resilient?
