Elizabeth Edwards

I have been unplugged, hiding out at Shangri-Lar for a few (well-deserved) days. As I was packing up the car to head home, Neil called me to tell me about Elizabeth Edward’s passing. “I didn’t want you to hear it on the news,” he said.

I didn’t know her, but many parts of her life story resonated with me. And I will never forget the interview in which she said (my paraphrase) that “resilience is about accepting the new reality, whatever that is.” I also loved her for saying she decided to find joy in whatever situation she was in.

That’s something, isn’t it? Finding joy no matter what.

Rest easy, Elizabeth.
