Wisdom from Elizabeth Edwards

I love this quote from Elizabeth Edwards. She was dealing with cancer, but the concept works well with chronic illness too:
“Resilience is accepting your new reality, even if it’s less good than the one you had before. You can fight it, you can do nothing but scream about what you’ve lost, or you can accept that and try to put together something that’s good.”
It's sad that she died, but her resilient spirit will continue on.
