“Life is mostly froth and bubble,
Two things stand like stone.
Kindness in another’s trouble,
Courage in your own.”

– Adam Lindsay Gordon

Let us remember our loss:

A Recipe for Resilience

By Margaret Weis
 

This recipe has been tweaked over time, so adjust as necessary. 

Sometimes it yields more servings than anticipated. 
Sometimes it needs a bit more of this ingredient or that. 
It comes from generations who have gone before me, and I've added my own flavor along the way. 

A Recipe for Resilience

One part courage
Two parts tears of failure and doubt
One part deep listening
One part each of both silence and laughter
A dash of trust
A pinch of wonder
A heaping scoop of naps and snacks

In a separate bowl, mix together family, friends, and those who challenge you to be your best self, those with whom you disagree.

Add slowly to the larger pot, add a bay leaf for … well, whatever it is bay leaves do, and let simmer for as long as you need (which is often longer than you realize or anticipate).

Keep the heat at an even temperature – hot enough to cook throughout, but not so hot it burns the bottom.

Can be served at room temperature, warm, or even cold if necessary. 
Serve alongside your favorite soft blanket, dog, cat, or other soft item.

Make often, 
Share with others, 
Hold onto the leftovers – you’ll need them after a long day that challenges your soul.
