💪 Even if you haven’t felt strong lately, Maritza, you’re powerful. To prove it, tap your *sisu* in the face of a tough moment today.

How the Finnish Concept of ‘Sisu’ Can Help You Through Tough Times

Tell me more ➡️

In Finland, “sisu” is a way of life. Roughly translated, it means having a “courageous mindset that embraces challenges, small & big.” It’s your inner strength.

How do I do it?

Today, turn to your *sisu* if things get tough. A stressful meeting, difficult convo, even a coffee spill—recognize it’s challenging, but trust you have the power to endure.

One more thing! 😉️

Trust your *sisu* is always within reach, Maritza.

P.s. Why the Japanese concept of *shikata ga nai* is also 💯

Shikata Ga Nai Is the Japanese Art of Letting Go—and It’s Glorious

How are you feeling, Maritza?


Amazing. Hope you keep up the good vibes today, Maritza!

Here’s how the Shine community’s doing today:




…feel the same way you do.




Have a great day, Maritza!
