Contemplating resilience happens often when we are dealing with changes in our body, circumstances or environment. Sometimes we are actually seeking a place within ourselves or our lives that existed in the past rather than investigating how we can healthily grow and move forward. 

"There is no going back and in this sense, there can be no rebound, elasticity or resilience. The body does not go backwards, nor does the mind or the spirit. The thing that we call “health” is not a steady state that we can return to, it is a process of forward motion."-FRANK FORENCICH
