RESILIENCE
“What I know for sure is that the only way to endure the quake is to adjust your stance. You can’t avoid the daily tremors. They come with being alive. But I believe these experiences are gifts that force us to step to the left or right in search of a new centre of gravity. Don’t fight them. Let them help you adjust your footing.”

GRATITUDE
“Being grateful all the time isn’t easy. But it’s when you feel least thankful that you are most in need of what gratitude can give you: perspective. “

POSSIBILITY

Nuggets of wisdom

GRATITUDE
Whilst writing this I had my own situation/shit I was sitting it (as we all do) and even in the moment of reading the gratitude quote mentioned above was such a powerful reminder to take control. No matter the situation your sitting in taking a moment to sit in gratitude can only amplify or move you from a negative to positive energy. 

RESILIENCE
We all face our own challenges in life, and whether we realise it or not each challenge we overcome helps us. We may not realise it but blow by blow we become stronger and smarter - we know our limits, we push them further even. Each challenge we face is there to support us in growth.

This book is right up your alley…

If you practice gratitude (or loves Oprah at least). Once finished or even started What I Know For Sure can be opened up to any page and be instantly absorbed.
