A Story About Resilience

Please watch the video below:

The Hugging Tree ~ A story about Resilience

What is Resilience? Resilience is the ability to cope when things go wrong.

Resilience can also be described as: Bouncing back after difficult times. Dealing with struggles and still holding your head up. Giving things a go or making your best effort. Being strong on the inside. Being able to cope with life’s challenges. Standing up for yourself.

Think about a time in your life when you overcame a challenge/difficulty?  


Take a Rainbow Walk with me

Video link –  I AM PEACE

Watch the video of the book, I am Peace by Susan Verde. Then take a Rainbow Walk. A Rainbow Walk is where you pay attention to what’s around you and look for the colors: red, yellow, blue, green, and orange.  

Draw or write what you saw and how you felt on your Rainbow Walk.
