“Tough Times Never Last, But Tough People Do”

- What does being Resilient mean?
Resilience is the ability to bounce back in the face of challenges, losses, and adversity. The resilient woman harnesses inner strengths and rebounds quickly from setbacks such as transitions, illness, trauma, or the death of a loved one. Resilience is also the ability to self-soothe during these difficult times.
