Becky Andrews, the clinical director of Resilient Solutions Inc., and a previous guest on our show, shares with us her 10 steps to resiliency. How do you take care of yourself so you can bounce back when life is difficult? Listen to today’s podcast for her professional plan that she has also implemented in her own life, as a woman with a degenerative eye disease that caused her to lose her eyesight. Despite this disability, Becky learned resiliency as she became a wife and mother, a therapist, a community activist, and a marathon runner. She is the author of her autobiography Look up, Move Forward.
Though Becky Andrews is blind she hasn’t let that stop her from the super-human feats of tandem biking thousands of miles around the Western US, running the Boston marathon and the NY City marathon, or from becoming a licensed clinical mental health counselor, a mom, a wife, a business owner, and a life coach. But to do all of this she’s had to overcome fear and reframe difficult interpretations of a life without sight.
