Card: Research demonstrates that resilience is an important factor in one’s ability to cope with problems, as well as thrive after problems. There are many components that contribute to resilience. Let the three black onyx beads serve as a reminder to work toward three of them: 1) Build meaningful relationships, 2) Develop and execute realistic plans, 3) Maintain a positive view of yourself and confidence in your abilities. Onyx was used because it is believed to calm fears and foster stability and security. Howlite was used because it is believed to relieve stress and overcome self-criticism.
