If there is any time when someone needs an uplifting message, it’s when they’re feeling broken down. Depending on your situation, it can be hard to find where we tucked away our resilience.

Resilience is our ability to bounce back from tough situations. It’s our grit, tenacity and ability to navigate our way out of tough times. It doesn’t mean that you don’t feel trauma or sadness. When a person is ready to bounce back or just wants to lift their head out of the clouds, these affirmations can help.

Share these with a friend, family member or colleague who may need some inspiration. Add these to your computer screensaver, phone alarm, business planner, vision board or any other location where the reminder can come in handy!
