Dr. Aviva Weisbord, PhD, was a gift to humanity. Her untimely passing this past week brought forth stories of an incredible individual, who harnessed her innate talent to help others challenged with struggles, mental health issues, personal problems and become a life long devotee to public health organizations, all with extreme humility. Her focus was not myopic. Her vision was broad. She undertook personal responsibility to helping those with no one to help them, providing a listening ear, word of comfort, sage advice, albeit peppered with deep, profound and sensitive wisdom.
As 2020 comes to a close, we continue discussing our ability to harness the power of resilience that can be accomplished when focusing with gratitude. It is crucial to learn how to shield ourselves and create boundaries from things that are harmful to us and to become aware of our triggers. We learn to say “no” things that will hurt us and give ourselves permission to ask, “Is what I’m going to do going to help me in my recovery, or is it going to set me back”.
As the end of 2020 nears, Matana reflects back on the changes, growth and hurdles that we’ve seen and learned from. Inspired from the positive moments, we focus on the power of resilience and our commitment to keeping this attribute a constant thread in the fabric that weaves us.
As we enter the holiday season, Matana rediscovers her year, recounting the blessing of having experienced a year devoted to gratitude. She highlights how she chose to be in the moments that are phenomenal, chose to highlight the gratitude moments and chose to live with an open, grateful heart.
