Thrive Project Celebrates Kindness and Resilience
Kindness and resilience are the focus for the 2021 Thrive project following a pandemic year and the challenges it brought. "Resilience is all about being able to overcome the unexpected," reads a quote by Jamais Cascio in one of the Thrive spots produced by Village Television. "The goal of resilience is to thrive."
The 2020 "Laguna Woods Village Thrives on Kindness" campaign benefitted many Village residents during the pandemic, Dr. Beth Perak told Lisa Hart in a Village Television interview. With the aim of continuing the theme of kindness, defined as an external act of reaching out to others, Dr. Perak explained that resilience is building skills from life experiences. Resilience is internal. Combining the external with the internal, the 2021 Thrive project is called "Kindness and Resilience in 2021" and showcases how Villagers learned to cope.
We hope you will share your experiences. We never know how others will be inspired to spread the kindness or how they will be encouraged through a tough time.
