The Luck of the Irish

St. Patrick's Day has a lot of fun traditions.

Wear green so you don't get pinched.

Eat corned beef and cabbage. (I don't mind the green frosted sugar cookies either).

Discover the pot of gold at the end of every rainbow.

Find a leprechaun and they have to grant a wish for their release.

And, I have been down on my knees more than once searching for the elusive 4-leaf clover.

Most of these traditions are associated with luck, and the Irish are sometimes called a lucky people.

They seem to be able to land on their feet when adversity comes or make the best of very unfortunate circumstances.

More than one Irish immigrant had adversity heaped on them when they came to America and many were not beaten down but rose above.

They are a resilient people.

They don't give up when times get tough, they look for answers.

Whatever you are up against, we have help for you at Live On Purpose Central.

I have never found a leprechaun or a pot of gold, but finding positivity and building resilience to weather the storms of life has given me something far more valuable than a granted wish or a pot of gold.

Join me at Live On Purpose Central to build your resilience.
