What’s resistance means to you?
Identifying moments of JOY is my form of resistance.
My family is my absolute everything.
Drawing is very therapeutic, worries lose their potency when I am focused on “capturing” shape and form.
I stay curious and love getting lost in learning.
Humor… I need it, I collect it, and use it, to cope/sooth, to frame and reframe.
Dancing-hard-like-no-one-is-watching also helps.
Being consciously grateful when a task or interaction goes smoothly is my jam!
Storing up these treasures grounds me, I feel more fortified and resilient when faced with life’s “muck”– better prepared to identify, solve, survive and repeat.
