You CAN, if you THINK you can!: “If you think you are beaten, you are…”

It's not the mountain we conquer, but OURSELVES

If you think you are beaten, you are; If you think you dare not, you don’t; If you think to win, but think you lost It’s almost sure you won’t. For out in the world we find, Success begins with a person’s will It’s all in the state of mind. Life’s battles don’t always go […]

Sharing some uplifting thoughts on head/brain injury

Sharing some Information and Thoughts on Head and Brain Injury

Just sorting out some of my brain injury quotes (quite a “muddle/mission”)
enjoy these thoughts

“NO two brain injuries are the same”
“Traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects and upsets life on multiple levels: physical, psychological, social, and even spiritual.”
“I do not bewail what I have lost, because I am at peace with myself. I have fought a hard battle, given it my best, and won far more that I or anyone else ever thought I would.”

Whilst the brain injury may significantly affect/impact many areas of your life…
“You are not defined by your traumatic brain injury”

“Don’t let your tbi define you!”

The experience of loss does not have to leave us with the memory of a painful event that stands alone, like a towering monument that dominates the landscape of our lives. Loss can also leave us with the memory of a wonderful story…”

Beyond the Zone: God and The Spiritual Journey

One of my favorite spiritual writers, Jerry Sittser, professor and author of A Grace Disguised, lost his wife, daughter, and mother in a car crash caused by a drunk driver. He paints a comforting picture of what it looks like to find hope in the face of loss:

The experience of loss does not have to leave us with the memory of a painful event that stands alone, like a towering monument that dominates the landscape of our lives. Loss can also leave us with the memory of a wonderful story. It can function as a catalyst that pushes us in a new direction, like a closed road that forces us to turn around and find another way to our destination. Who knows what we will discover and see along the way? The suffering my children, family, friends, and I have experienced is part of an ongoing story…
