Endurance vs Resistance / Resistenza vs Resilienza

Endurance is the measure of a person's stamina or persistence. Resilience is the mental ability to recover quickly from depression, illness or misfortune.

Different perspective / Prospettiva diversa

Just like that... the sea changes its mood... This allows us to see it from a different (a new) perspective so that we can adapt, find new ways and grow.
