Couldn't find a better illustration of Resilience, an EQ competency of Resilience. My sons plays it for his little daughter when she's had a hard day. This version happens to be in French, but you don't really need to understand the words. The message is clear.
So keep on dancin'!

HEY MOON GIRL, WHAT DO YOU SEE?
Semiramis reminds us there's a Full Moon coming up in deep passionate Scorpio. Time to look at your deepest yearnings. If you don't know them, how will the universe know them and send them to you??
If you don't know what you want, you probably won't get it. You can miss getting your deepest desire because you've lost touch with it.
Semiramis is offering $25 email readings and $50 phone readings during this time. Contact her at email@example.com .
Loss of clear vision can get in the way of your relationships, or bring you warped versions of what you want. The perfect man only he's married. The neatest woman you ever met only she's 10 years older than you and doesn't want kids. The ideal companion but the physical is lacking. Dynamite sex, but you really can't stand her.
Scorpio is the soul-searching sign. Let Semiramis lead the way for you to ...
NEWS FROM THE LUCKY GENE CLUB - WE NOW KNOW THE ONE VARIABLE THAT CAN DOUBLE YOUR CHANGES OF LIVING TO BE 100
New research out -- there's one variable that immediately doubles your chances of living to be 100, and it's ... (choose one)
__ Eating broccoli
__ Walking 3x a week
__ Weighing 10% less than the recommended weight for your height
__ Weighing 10% more than the recommended weight for your height
__ Eating tofu
__ Arbonne's DefenseBuilder supplement
__ Having a college degee
__ Playing the harp (there may be something to that, check out link)
__ Living with a dog once you're past the age of 40
__ Being married
__ Living in a rural area
__ Working less than 50 hours a week
__ Taking a real two-week vacation every year once you're over the age of 35
__ Having less than 2 children yourself
Which did you choose?
Well, don't you wish it was one of these, and it is not.
THE SINGLE PREDICTIVE FACTOR IS IF YOU WERE BORN WHEN YOUR MOTHER WAS YOUNGER THAN 25 YEARS OLD
Darn right it isn't fair.
There's nothing you can do about that. It's already been done. It's happened. You have it or you didn't.
Makes sense. The theorists have their ideas, but the notion's been around for decades that the DNA wears out (old eggs, old sperm) and fresh and young is better.
All the data on "first borns"? It turns out it's because they are the most likely to have had mothers younger than 25.
Now, it would be nice if it was one of the choices above, because those are things you can do something about. You could start eating broccoli. You could buy a dog or go to the pound. You could start walking.
However, there's nothing you can about the age of your mother when you were born.
THIS IS LIKE IQ AND EQ.
Though people will try to argue about this, it's just common sense you get the IQ you're born with. You can learn more, maybe eek it up a point or two, take the test a second time when you've had more sleep ... but basically your IQ is set at birth.
BUT NOT EQ! EQ CAN BE LEARNED. YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR EQ.
And if you're destined to live to be 100, and want to enjoy it more -- learn EQ. If your mother was 35 when you were born, and you may not make it to 100, learn EQ and enjoy the years you have.
Those statistics are pretty meaningless when we talk about a certain individual, like YOU, or ME, and no matter how long your life, if it isn't meaningful, it you aren't able to enjoy it, what does it matter.
EQ is about wellness, and it's also about getting the most out of things -- out of your life, your career, your relationships.
One of my professors in grad school (psych.) told us that life was about "learning to let more in." Well, we keep things out, and back off from them, and limit ourselves and experiences because we are leery about "letting more in." Right?
At the extreme, this is my friend Gar whose best friend lost his wife when they were in their 20s and suffered so much Gar -- watching from the outside -- decided he would never risk falling in love, because he did not want to risk suffering like that. He has remained a bachelor his entire life and is now in his 60s. It's his choice, of course, but most of us would agree that he's missed a lot. He's missed good things and adversities, but he's missed fullness. (The Spanish say La vide es corta, pero ancha ... Life is short, but it is wide.)
Resilience -- boundin' back -- allows you to let more in, and also allows you to navigate those times when you get shorn and your dancin' shoes don't feel like dancin'.
Dance anyway! It's the Merry Month of May.
