The Path of Most Resilience:
With 8 Rest Stops for the Human Spirit
Some ideas, like building the resilience of the human spirit, are simply taken on faith.
The Path of Most Resilience is for anyone making passage out the door, through the day, and back home again. Written in the tone of an old friend, A. J. Bickford uses the power of suggestion to stir an inward journey for:
- navigating a busy world,
- accepting pruning and rebalancing when shift happens, and
- moving forward through transformation.
With a closer look and reflection on a single hatchling turtle, it’s noticeable that the experience of struggling on shore develops lungs for living in the ocean. With a closer look and reflection on the gift of our life experiences through advantage and adversity, it’s noticeable that the human spirit also has the capacity to dig out, dig in, and dig deep.
The ideas in this book are really an invitation to dig deep and take a leap of faith into deliberate reflection with a favorite rest stop along the way to impact wellbeing, build resilience, flip the script through challenging change, and reunite mind, body, and spirit.
Inward! Enjoy. Endure. Emerge. Expand. Repeat. Enjoy.
About the Author
Enchanted early on by life in her own backyard, Alayna Jayne (A. J.) Bickford is attuned to the joyful co-creative work and play found in a loving home on a family farm and in small-town USA. Imprinted through both the trials and the triumphs that build a life of meaning and hope, A. J. walks alongside her influential, lifelong mentors Nature, Love, and The Mystery asking key questions. Through observation and in a layman’s writing style, she uses the power of suggestion to encourage others to look into the eyes of all creation for answers hidden in plain sight and to apply deeper knowledge to everyday life.
At home through the years in the Midwest, Southwest, and Southeast, A. J. enjoys ordinary days with her husband and cocker spaniel in a daily devotion to looking up, hiking a trail, making dinner from the garden, reading, writing, or gathering around a campfire hootenanny or a body of water with welcomed friends, family groups, nieces, nephews, and all the many curious daredevils and mermaids of the real and remembered kind.
