And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.
RE=back SILIENCE=from the French salire, meaning to jump, to leap
Resilience as a word in English was first attributed to Francis Bacon in 1627. Resilience was used by Bacon in the scientific sense of a rebounding. The word contains both the movement of recoiling inward but also reverberating back outward. Resilience is not just a characteristic or a path, but it is incorporated into the biology of every living organism.

These touchpoints describe the process we all share when transitioning from crisis into a new life phase, a movement that showcases our innate power for hope—a transformation that evidences our Resilience.
