Developing Resiliency is a Critical Skill to Learn

I believe that developing resiliency is an important skill to learn. When you boil it down, to me, resiliency is all about how much you’ve healed. If you’re resilient, you can easily navigate the challenges and changes of life. If you’re not resilient, every little thing is going to upset you, or prevent you from moving forward, or make you never grow into who you’re meant to be.

Take actions from today’s podcast on learning how to be more resilient:

Today on Clear Your Clutter inside now, we’re talking about resiliency. Have you gone through a crisis and it took you a long time to bounce back? Do you feel that life’s little things become a much bigger bump in the road for you? Are you challenged when faced with changes in your life? Learn to become more resilient. As we wrap up our month focused on dealing with challenges. Do you control your clutter? Or does your clutter control you? Unclear your clutter inside now. We’ll teach you awareness as well as action steps to create change in your life. Come on, let’s get started. Today’s episode was inspired with my conversations with Mara and that interview is on thing strong energetic boundaries March that then Barrett who we talked about changing patterns last month in April, because a conversation that I had with them, I also thought it was a great way to end the month of May when we’re talking about challenges because the more resilient you are, the easier you can deal with the tosses and turns of life. And so something that is challenging, difficult, even a crisis, you’re able to come through it more quickly. And get through it more easily. The more resilient you are. I also see, which started the prompt of the conversations with Maren Beth and Barrett, all these trigger warnings and content warning on social media now. I talk a lot about the and meaning it’s okay to acknowledge things. It’s okay to be upset about things. Have I turned into a hot mess? Absolutely. Usually, I don’t do that publicly. And I very rarely respond on social media have in the past. Yeah. And actually last one, I got off and I’m like, I’m done. I want the Sanger person how can I turn it in order to heal. So to me, when we aren’t resilient, it’s about healing. I think if I were to think bottom line resiliency to me, the more we have it, the more we feel more healed more easily, we can deal with challenges. And so I see all these things posted. And you know, like best so eloquently said, If you then you’re going to run into at the post office, or standing in line at the grocery store. So if we don’t deal with things, universe, God, whatever your term is going to find a way to put in our path, what we need to heal, what we need to work on ourselves. If you know me, and you’ve listened to me for a while, you know, I don’t try to harm someone. And I tried to be very careful about what I say. And do. I try to understand people’s perspective. I educate myself, and I get that impact can be greater than intention. And we each need to heal and if we get upset, every little thing, we’re going to stay stuck on healed, remain a victim and never move forward in life. That when I’m that’s what I’m exactly I’m talking about resiliency, the more resilient we are, we can move forward. Does that mean that things aren’t gonna upset you? Absolutely not. But if we don’t heal, if we don’t learn to deal with the things that upset us, then we can’t be our awesome, brilliant sells. And I know each and every one of you listening and watching is where are you challenged to bounce back? Maybe there are different areas in your life and you’re like, oh, wow, if I have a breakup, it seems it takes me forever to get back in the game again. Or maybe if it’s a career setback. Once you just take a moment and contemplate that. I next want to talk about what is the definition of resiliency and I went to Merriam Webster for this noun in case you were wondering, remember those all verb noun adjectives as kids, it’s the ability to recover from or adjust easily to adversity or change. And they use two sentences. The resiliency of nature and humans and the weeks of fires, floods, earthquakes, volcanoes and other destructive forces. They also use it with the Brewers have shown a resiliency through the seasons up and downs. Anyone who’s a sports fan can appreciate it. I’m so excited. I had to go to the doctor yesterday and there was a woman in the elevator with a Steelers mask on I was super pumped. I’m like yeah, go Steelers. We talked about how we needed another Super Bowl. I love it. Steelers fans are everywhere. Also want to talk about what result And isn’t it doesn’t mean

that you’re never going to experience challenges. I joke, I think my brother is probably had a quote unquote easy life, I often will say to him, Wow, you really, you’re skating a bit this life, you must have been really good and several past life. And I know him well enough to know that he’s had challenges, challenges, he’s faced adversity, he’s faced some other things. We all have that. You’re not going to escape from that. People who have it’s my experience, especially working with clients, when I did all the interviewing people that I know, that are healers have usually experienced major adversity, and trauma in their life, a lot of emotional pain, a lot of stress. And they’ve gone through that and want to share with others, how they can heal. Each of you can develop resiliency, it’s about being aware of our feelings, behaviors, thoughts and actions, right? Because that’s all we can control. We can’t control anything in the world at large out there. But you can build those muscles and you can become Brazilian, look at 911 Here in America, I realized that I didn’t lose anyone I knew people that lost someone, I didn’t lose anyone. Yet it still affected me. On a great level, I can still think back to that day. I know exactly where I was. I know exactly what happened. I can recall that day. Like it happened yesterday. And that just showed the resiliency of our country, and people who lost a someone and had to push forward and had to continue to move. That’s something that happened on a national level. You look at the that tsunami that happened in 2006. And I’m going to say Thailand, and that’s I’m sure the wrong country. Look how they had to rebuild and move forward. I mean, wasn’t it I mean, it was a catastrophe. And I remember the designer, I don’t remember his name, but his partner died. And hearing people talk about clinging for their lives on a tree that’s being swamped by the ocean. You have to have resiliency to get through that and continue to move forward at life. And I want you to remember, don’t make it a competition for who’s suffered the most who’s have the biggest trauma, because if it affects you, that’s what’s important. Now, I’m gonna also talk about perspective. But if it’s a big deal, and you consider a trauma or adversity than it is honor that about yourself. So how do we build resiliency? Easier said than done? Right does not seem like it is as most things in life. I don’t want to say that because I know you can’t. It’s about having a plan in place. It’s about being coming aware and taking action. Lean on your relationships. I think that at least in America, we have this fallacy Oh, I’ve got to go too long. Gotta be strong, rugged individualism. I know I felt that way. For a long time. I couldn’t ask for help, couldn’t ask for support. And I’ve gotten older, I’m able to do that a lot more easily. You know, God, love Kotti. She’s been checking in on every week, how are we doing? What’s the sitch? What’s going on? Lean on your friends, join groups. Maybe if you’re grieving, then you join a grief support group. Now I just want to add a little thought here. I think as long as you continue to move forward, you see value and support in the group then continue with that, I think where it sometimes gets a little not so great is when it just becomes a moan and complain session. When you just you aren’t moving forward just Oh, woe is me. You’re staying in that victim mentality, you’re just hating on others. And that doesn’t allow you to move forward. It or the same. If you were in a grief support group and you’re in and a year and people still seem to be in the place or something that happened five years ago. That’s where you need to become a little bit more aware. Lean on the people that you love. Lean on your friends and family. And if you have to get professional support, do it. There is no shame in that. We all need someone that cares about us and that will listen to us. Wellness is really important. If you’re a hot mess and physically exhausted. I mean, I’m trying to figure out all this health stuff and not go bananas. I can be more resilient. When I feel like I’ve had eight hours of sleep instead of feeling like I haven’t had a good night’s sleep in 10 years. That’s gonna affect everything I do. So you want to take care of your physical health. The more physically in shape you are it just makes it easier to deal with life throws at you.

So Your mental health, whether for you that mindfulness practice praying, journaling, what keeps you to be able to find that center find that calmness, you know, if you have that overwhelmingness when something happens, the more you can find mental clarity and calm, of course, you’re going to be more resilient. Find a way to manage your stress. I was talking about my husband this morning about that over the past couple of days. And I said, we need to find, what can I do? And I’m always how can I support you? But what do we need to do? That helps you manage your stress easily, like I didn’t realize he said, Oh, when we were watching the movie last night, the guys ping me because it said on our little group chat that I was on, I said, the guy should know by now that you have you work Monday through Thursday. That’s, that’s not okay. And I said, so one of the things we’re going to do to manage stress is make sure that’s turned off. And that we put your phone away and you don’t answer it on your day off and that you take three days off to completely unwind. So find ways you’re going to be able to manage stress, I love walking, I believe now the chiropractor’s helped me manage stress. I love noon guys. And my little Healthwatch neum has really, I’m down 10 pounds, I got about 40 More want to lose, so a fifth of the way. And why fighting this, they said it was good sign yesterday that I’ve been able to lose weight because my other half my thyroid isn’t kind of kicking into gear and they said but even lose weight, that’s a definite plus in the right direction. So now we’re trying to figure out, if I go on meds, I have to do it for my entire life. And so I’m not going to do that until I have a more informed decision. However, I’m down 10 pounds. And considering all the stress that I’ve had, I had to go to the ER a couple weeks ago, and they’re like, it’s stress related, which on one hand, yay, I don’t have a brain tumor, brain bleed, yay. And I need to manage it better. It’s just you know, and that’s the other thing life happens, guys, we’re gonna have challenges, there are going to be times in our life where we got a lot going on we got to face and deal with, and it’s just part of life. So if I learn to manage my stress a little better. I’ve been eating better. I’ve been walking more. So those are some of the ways on managing express your feelings, that is part of wellness, whether you I’m a fan of journaling, if you need to scream, shake it out, kick it out, cry it out, express them don’t keep those bottled up, they, you know, effect us on every single level, Louise Hay talks about this eat. So if there’s something going on in your body, she related to something and has an affirmation for it, it’s from her book, you can heal your life. And I know you can get the little itty bitty book that just talks about the different disease and what that’s about. I’ve always found that fascinating. So make sure you’re expressing yourself because you keep those emotions in your body. They don’t go away. We can’t intellectualize them away. And then for me part of wellness is keeping the faith. having hope. When life was really tough for me, I could see that sliver of hope. I could see that itty bitty pinprick of light at the end of the tunnel. And on my darkest days, I’d remind myself you have Tony, you have the kitties. You have your family. And everyday I would try to grasp on a one thing that could give me hope that would allow me to keep the faith that I could be grateful for me that’s kind of your spiritual well being. And it’s all related, what’s going on inside reflected on the outside and vice versa. The better you take care of yourself in all areas of life, the better you’ll be able to hand the what life throws at you. Take Action, figure out a way to move forward. Even it’s like I said I had that pinprick of light of hope. What little bitty step can I take today? What can I do to move forward. And within that, I’d also like to suggest volunteering. I found out that when I do for another, I feel a lot better about myself. And

you might not be able to care for yourself, but maybe it might be easier for you to volunteer and do something. So each little step you take if you’re able to get out of bed after something traumatic, great job, you’re able to take a shower, good job, keep it going able to make yourself breakfast. All those little things add up and I’ve been in that place where trying to make a meal seems like climbing Mount Everest showering or bathing is easy because I love my woman cave, which is the bathtub. So that’s least likely to be challenged. Whatever little thing you can do, whether it’s self care, whether it’s listening to a podcast, it’s going to support you watching a YouTube video, reading a book, all those things are allowing you to take action to keep moving you forward and giving you that forward momentum. face the challenge head on. If you just bury it aside, like I’ve had clients who are in debt, but don’t open up their bills, not gonna allow you to face your challenge, and you’re gonna procrastinate, put it off, not deal with it. And when you don’t do you don’t do you don’t deal, then you have a complete meltdown if something happens, because at some point, you’re going to have to deal with things. You don’t have to do it alone. I once made a friend hold my hand when I had to make a really difficult phone call. She’s like, Okay, I’ve got this event. It’s a challenge. Okay. All right. Let’s have a meet and greet. Let’s talk about what we can do. Because the more you do that, you get the confidence that you know, you can do it, you know that you’re more resilient than you think you can handle more than you think you’re stronger than you think. So face it head on. And remember, you don’t have to do it alone, you don’t have to face it alone. Focus on your goals, keep your eyes on the prize. If you have something really awful happen, you’re going through a huge challenge you’ve faced, we talked this month about injustice, and bullying. And I already forgot what the other one was. At lightning, you’ve experienced that. Know that you can move forward. And don’t let those events take away from what your goals are. I had injustice going on. And I still wanted to complete the four books last year. So I did it. I be like man, I’m angry man and whatever. And I’m going to write every day towards my goal. What is it that I am focused on? What is it that I want to accomplish? And then I kept moving forward towards that I’ve got to not drop all my goals because that gave me something to work for, towards something to believe in and to keep moving towards like that little pinprick of light. And part of that working through your goals might be like me, okay, well, I want to get healthy. So losing weight, and feeling better and right. And that’s related to wellness will which will allow you to be more resilient. Do you feel the weight of clutter as a big burden, the long term relief? Are you aware that something needs to change, but you’re not sure what or how to move forward. Looking for a little more support that budget friendly, visit reawaken your brilliance on Patreon. To learn more or find the link at reawaken your brilliance, calm. Take a moment and look back on your life. When you face adversity, acknowledge how you’ve grown and what you’ve learned from it. When you put your feet through the fire you’ve grown and you’ve learned something for it. Have you ever taken the time for something that was absolutely stinky and said, Wow, this helped me grow. Or this is what I learned. I learned that I’m a pretty dang good lawyer for not having a law degree and never having gone to law school. Brick by Brick, I took it apart I didn’t win. But that’s not that’s not the thing to focus on. Because you know, we’ve talked about injustice doesn’t always happen. I learned that I like as hard as it was I like standing up for myself better than being passive aggressive.

I’ve grown because I didn’t choose the passive aggressive route. I’ve grown because I’ve learned let a lot of it not all of it. I’m a work in progress go. Anything, I wouldn’t be the woman I am today. With the adversity that I faced. It wouldn’t have allowed me to write books. It wouldn’t allow me down the podcast. It wouldn’t have allowed me probably to be in the business that I’m in I probably wouldn’t have been a coach because I think that everything I’ve experienced has definitely given me me a wealth of empathy and compassion. I can understand it, I can have empathy. And you know, one thing someone said to me recently, I said, Well, that would drive me nuts. And I said, Yeah, well, you know, I’m able to step back and have compassion for that person. That doesn’t mean you know, and it was situation I said, it’s not okay to treat me like this. And I said, my piece, I had to cool down for an hour, I did cool, my jets, came back and said, I am happy to do this. And I’m making a boundary right here. Now in the past, I would have blown up, walked away, permanently. But it showed me how much I’ve grown and that I can have greater compassion for someone. And you know, it’s funny, Tony and I were just talking this morning. And one thing that was was really difficult. And, and he said to me today, how much it was a shot in the heart to him. And I was there in this moment that his friend did something. Now, my normal course of action would have been, I’m laughing. We haven’t watched Married at First Sight in a while we stopped at season nine. But in one of the scenes, he said, Are you done with me? Because I’m done with you. And I would have probably said something. But moment of adversity happened for Tony, instead of having a knee jerk reaction, I took a deep breath, and I said, my husband’s hurting. I’ve got to respond to stop the bleeding on this and why it’s something I wouldn’t do in my own life. I want my husband happy and and right now in this moment, he needs this to happen. And so putting Tony’s needs and feelings first. Instead of completely annihilating the person from his life. Now, the good news is they have slowly, slowly, they really aren’t a part of it now, and I am grateful for that. But I’d grown enough to know in the moment I got to put him first I got to get this off for him. It doesn’t matter what I think’s right or wrong. Let’s take care of him. So acknowledge where you’ve grown and where you’ve learned and then try to find the silver lining. Sometimes it might take a while for you to be able to do that. But you can find it we’re you know, really frustrated. It’s we haven’t found a house yet. Very stressful. And I keep telling myself the right house is out there for you. And Tony, just take a deep breath that back. And so we’ve only put one bid on a house and we’re like I said my router. So you know, you have to say based on bank appraisal, you know, we’re not going to get crazy on this and funny way. We didn’t get the house and found it really quickly. But the good news was I’m really truthfully laid back about a lot of things but you know, the bathrooms my woman cave, we have like, an amazing bathroom. Now I know I’m telling old because I get excited about the bathroom. It’s different shades of purple. I have my own separate tub I have above a window when I propped my bubble bath, say or Tony has a separate shower. We have a separate scenario. You walk in Tony sinks on the right minds on the left. And there’s a little door with the bathroom and I’ve got a linen closet. It’s just an it’s not huge, but it’s awesome. So in the house, we lost. I was like Tony, I was like ooh, the toilet is right next to the bathtub. I just personally don’t care for that other people you might be like, it is the best thing since sliced bread. But for me I’m like I just don’t like that. And I was like this other one you know the bathrooms my woman cave and the toilets next the bathtub in the nicer bathroom. In my view, the nicer tub is I’d have to walk to that. So that’s a silver lining. We didn’t have to redo the bathroom because I said Tony, I can hang with that for a while but that would have to be redone. That’s kind of an easy one to find a silver lining with but I encourage you how can you find the silver lining and no matter what happened? So let’s the silver lining. Let’s get a little that solar because you know how I’ve been upset about that for a while. Well, the silver lining is the day that it went down. Tony said to his boss, Hey,

can I work from home? Can I work from anywhere? Can we move to West Virginia, the boss like okay, his boss was really funny. He’s like, I’d go ahead and put the panels on it, fight it. So I was like we’re not going to go that route. We’re just going to leave I said that we can’t live in an HOA. So then COVID happened so Tony has been able to prove that his boss and his boss’s boss, you know I got a promotion. All know how great he is at home. So there’s going to be no issue when we moved from him working from home so that’s a big silver lining to have. My husband gets to work from home till he retires control what you can, I started this episode, reminding you about what you control can control your feelings, behaviors, thoughts and action, everything else you have zilch control over. So just remind yourself of that you can’t control how people interact, what they’re going to say what they’re gonna do think you can control you, and how you respond and how you choose to move forward. And you can get down that rabbit hole of, especially if you’ve experienced the challenge, like people aren’t going to change, I call this neighborhood the blockheads. They’re not going to Chancellor like concrete blocks, okay? I’m not gonna put any more effort into trying to get you to change, I have zero control over that. So I’ve just got to let that go, that they’re going to become enlightened. You know, my personal theory you do you do you do and then some, your bully or whatever, and then someone eventually stands up to you. I just think that that’s how it happens the majority of the time. So just remind yourself, okay, I can’t control that this happened to me. But what can I can control, I can control my perspective. And that’ll lead us into the next one. I always try to look at the bigger perspective. I used to, especially in when I was younger, have all or nothing, very black and white thinking. And as I’ve aged, it really isn’t an all or nothing. It’s more of a gray, there are different perspectives that you can have. And you always can’t see it at the time, you know, an example that just popped into my head. I really was single for a long time I got married late in life in my early 40s. And a time was heartbroken to someone that I love and lots of good things wasn’t the right guy for me, and I wasn’t the right woman for him. And when I met Tony, I understood why it never worked out with anyone else. And I have the most incredible husband ever. And I wouldn’t trade him for anything. So with time, I was able to have that perspective, I was able to have the perspective that if the solar had been installed, we wouldn’t have started the process and saying, Hey, Stan, can we move out of state and we wouldn’t have started the process to get ready to move. And so when my mom had everything go down, we had already set the wheels in motion to move to wheeling. And so that’s making it easier. So less than a year after that help words within please let us be moved in by May. That is really our goal. Had we installed that we probably would have been more reluctant. Man, you know, we love this house. It’s a ranch. We have solar on this nice quiet called a sack I had the brilliant bathroom, we back up to the wetlands all good. Lots of good things absolutely love this place. The solar might have been like, oh, man, we just installed solar. We didn’t. So it’s made it much easier to depart this neighborhood. It’s mean like we can have a clean break and go to see if you can gain a new perspective. Try to embrace if you can embrace accept, change because this is part of being resilient. Change can be very hard, I used to joke that I was like a cat change is a lot easier for me now. So as much as you can be in the flow, and at least accept change. So change is gonna happen to all of us. It’s inevitable, kind of like the challenges, death taxes change and change and challenges. So how can you accept change because when you accept it, when you kind of relax into the flow of life, then that allows you to be more resilient, you can just back bounce back more easily. Instead of trying to control everything I’ve mentioned, I’m okay Julie, just take a step back. The right house will appear whatever house is meant to happen haven’t just breathed. Just don’t be like that trying to grasp that straw and just hold on so tight release.

So where can you accept your change and challenges? Now my personal belief system, what I say is I came to this plane at this time for these challenges. So if I signed up for it, I can’t complain a lot of victim if I signed up for it. Now I realize that all of you listening are not going to agree with me and that’s absolutely okay. But like I joke with something okay, you’re talking about the neighborhood. I’ve cleared karma. I have done my neighborhood karma. I have earned an amazing neighborhood. That’s what I’m going with. But that’s something that truly helps me when I fish when it cranky I’m like ah I cleared this car my clear this karma Well, let’s step back for a moment. Not getting solar panels is a pretty easy thing. Losing 1200 bucks is a pretty easy way to clear some karma, right? It could be a lot worse. remain hopeful I really as I’ve talked through this, and at the beginning how I see resiliency, the more resilient you are, the more you’ve healed. I think the worst thing, probably one of the worst things in life would to be to lose all hope. I think that would be in a really, tremendously difficult place to be so remain hopeful. Even through your challenges and tribulations like I talked about earlier, that little pinprick of light, I could still see that little pinprick of light through everything. Think in your past, of all the good things that have happened, all the good things presently in your life. What are your hopes and dreams? What can you do to hold on to that? What can you do to know to believe something awesome is going to happen? And what even though this has been a challenge or a tragedy, what helpfulness What goodness can come out of that. So any little thing that you can hold on to you can grasp onto to remain hopeful? That’s going to support you in being more resilient. Take a moment to review how you’ve coped in the past, you’ve been challenged in the past, what have you done? I would write it down. Okay, this is what it this is what helped me through it. And one of the reasons I like journaling, you can get some clarity on that you can take notes, there things you can do and say, oh, yeah, this really worked for me. I like lists, and everything. So you know, my mantra is just breathe when I’m in the moment feeling really struck. But if I’ve journaled I can learn from my experience, okay, I know when this situation comes up, this is how a I can handle it that be I can get through it, and see how I can thrive. I’m a fan of lift and understanding that So along with that, as I talked a moment ago, how what have you overcome? What have you learned? What are the Silver Linings you found? How have you grown, it’s like your own personal, I am awesome. She, where you see truly how awesome you are. So when you review that, you’re gonna know I am amazing. And oh my gosh, look, look at this, look how I’ve grown look, all that I’ve overcome, I am resilient, I can do this, this thing I’m going through, I’m gonna beat it, I am going to win, I am not going to let it keep me down. Make a list of things that you can look forward to. You know, I’m not I’m going through change right now. And I don’t consider I wouldn’t use the word challenge. It’s a big change moving. And it’s not just moving down the road like we did two years ago. It’s moving different state. And so I’m thinking all the things to look forward to ah, you know, I get to explore Pittsburgh as an adult. I know they have some really cool museums in Pittsburgh. And I have a colleague and he says, oh, I want to meet you when you move to Pittsburgh, you and Tony, I’ll go out and I’m gonna take you the best Baker in Pittsburgh, you don’t have to ask me twice. I’ve already done some googling. And I think by the time we get things will be a little bit back to normal. But we love escape rooms. Oh my gosh, what Escape Rooms are in the area? Oh, there’s one close to wheeling in there. Someone Pittsburgh, ooh, that’s something I’m excited about. Learning about native plants to West Virginia. I’m going to complete the course shortly. And then I really want to spend the next year doing another certification, but so much information really regarding going over the course again, but I want to know what plants are native to West Virginia, there’s something I really am putting out to the universe that I’d like to happen. And so I’ve been kind of my dream thing. And so I’m like, Okay, we plant the seed a little bit. I’m going to read about this thing.
