R E S I L I E N C E : the ability to get punched in the face over and over again


Would you describe yourself as a resilient person?

Resilience is about a persons capacity to recover from shitty situations, to be able to “spring back into shape” no matter what life throws at you.

What helps make someone resilient?


There’s always going to be challenging shit that comes at us in life. The older we get the more stuff we’ve had to bounce back from.

What I notice is that resilient people are more likely to use self-care tools and do things that help them heal rather than just move on.

When you move on from trauma without appropriately resolving and releasing it, you bring forward with you the emotional baggage.

And the older you get, the more baggage you have until one day the baggage is too heavy to carry.

This can manifest as a “mid life crisis” (at any age), tiredness, lethargy, illness, a more negative mindset, burnout, depression, helplessness and hopelessness.

I’ve written blogs on how to deal with releasing your emotional baggage which you can find at my website.

I also created a freebie to help you release past baggage here.


  • healing your body and mind – try counselling, coaching, energy work like Reiki and Kinesiology
  • focus on getting a good sleep routine
  • releasing past baggage
  • strengthen your connection to others
  • make self-care a priority
  • take care of your body
  • know your limits
  • be assertive and know when to say no
  • practice mindfulness and self development
  • align your life with your purpose
  • set goals and take inspired action
  • gravitate away from toxic people, places and situations
  • embrace positive thinking
  • learn from your past

I’d love to hear from you – what do you think makes you (and keeps you) a resilient person?

Share with me the tools that help you release the baggage in your past.

If you need any help via coaching or energy work, you know where to find me  🙂

I have a whole topic on resilience and how to build it within yourself in my online coaching program, From Surviving To Thriving. 

Catcha on the flip side, with less baggage,
