Resilience is one of my favorite words. I never even used prior to my son's autism diagnosis; but now, it captures the essence of who I want to be as a parent and who I want my children to be as they make their transitions through life. In our society, resilience is important to our survival; our ability to move beyond the labels and the limitations and the negativity that is now part of popular culture. Our strength must come from within, with support and encouragement from our family and friends. Quoting Steve Maraboli: Life doesn't get easier or more forgiving. We get stronger and more resilient.
