Hi,
Your question should read "What does the idiom 'back on our feet' mean?

This idiom refers to someone who has regained some kind of good physical/financial/emotional stability or success after experiencing a period of hardship.

For example: Ryan is finally back on his feet. He is currently working and the unexpected lay-off last year seems more like a bad dream now.
