Quote on Resiliency

A Thought for the New Year from SLHI's January 09 newsletter

"Destruction and renewal, death and life are necessary for any healthy system. The Greek word for 'crisis' means 'to sift.' Sifting suggests we are letting go of what is no longer necessary but retaining the essence. Resilience represents this capacity to sift: to let go and hang on simultaneously. The challenge is knowing what and how to let go."

What a great morsel to chew on as we begin this new year and are in the cycle of the dark.
