It's another week of Writer's Quotes Wednesday, hosted by Marsha from Always Write. If you're interested in joining, you can find more about #WQWWC here.
This weeks theme is resilience and fortitude. I had to look up their definitions to see if there was a difference between the two.
Resilient = a person able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions
Fortitude = a strength of mind that enables a person to encounter danger or bear pain or adversity with courage. Strength in the face of adversity or difficulty.
So, while they have different definitions, I feel like they can go hand in hand. On our Wednesday Hodgepodge questions, one of them was "are you resilient?". I think I am. I believe that when it comes to these two words, we cannot "compare" stories, because we are all so different. I feel like I am probably more resilient than someone who has strong fortitude. But it also might depend on the situation I'm in at the moment.
My girls, exhibited these attributes on the soccer field. My hubby and I were resilient in recovering from a tough life change 7years ago.
This quote really gave me some food for thought. I love how it says "the dawn will start to appear". Sometimes when all we see is the obstacle or danger, we cannot see the light, or the way out, it's dark, hopeless, confusing."
I want to be a tree that bends, that is flexible with the wind. We are due to have a hard wind storm tomorrow and I know we will experience some downed trees because they just cannot handle the pressures of the wind.
