Connections Spotlight — Flagstaff youth, How are you resilient?

Resiliency is developing the skills and power to overcome adversity and become stronger and healthier. CCCY is grateful to have partnered with the Flagstaff Family Food Center Sumer Reading Program to share resiliency information with youth. We asked 86 Flagstaff youth, “How are you resilient?” Here are their responses:

“I am resilient because I’m different at school. I have been insulted and bullied, and it hurts, but I can push all that to the side. Forgive and forget.”

Connections Spotlight: Resiliency/mindfulness training helps during these challenging times

It is not easy to write this message.  I, just like many of you, have found myself filled with many emotions ranging from deep sadness to raw anger.  Many of us around the Nation are trying to find our voice, our place- ideas for how we can make a positive impact.  CCC&Y has a long history of advocating for and working toward justice and equity for our community.  

I was scheduled to present the Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) / resiliency training live this week for a school district.  I was re-struck, while speaking with these educators, by how relevant the work of CCC&Y is- even during current times.  I felt gratitude for this connection and all of you who further this work.    

If you have not done so already, I would invite you to visit our webinar on ACES.  It will help you to gain personal insight into what happens to people, what we do to people and how society can choose to make trauma worse or better for folks.  That insight then becomes sharable.

Mindfulness Spotlight: How are you filling your cup?

There’s so much “new”! You may be wearing several hats simultaneously throughout a day: caregiver, employee, leader, chef, IT specialist, and so many more. A friend recently reminded me, “We can’t forget we have a physical body.” Simple as it was, it was a great reminder for me.

So how are you filling your cup? CCC&Y encourages you to do something every day that brings you peace of mind. Tending to our social/emotional health builds our resiliency! Ensuring our cup is full, or at least not running on empty, ensures we have the emotional reserve to be our best for ourselves and our children.
