Hi and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I hope you are doing well and having fun with life. Life is for living, not merely existing. I have been thinking about a particular quote. In life we are confronted with change and challenge. When faced with change we are presented with new challenges. These changes and challenges sometimes present themselves in peculiar packages. The peculiar nature of those packages can lull you and I into the belief that we can do nothing.
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work. Thomas A. Edison
I have found that although some things are out of my control, I am not helpless. In my experience, when I am confronted with change and challenge I am given an opportunity. The opportunity becomes apparent through the experience. The experience unfolds, as I am willing to learn because of the change and the challenge. The choices that I make –because of the experience — will either empower my process or leave me feeling helpless. The good news is that I do not have to believe a lie.
The good news is that I am not helpless. I have the power of choice. Craig J. Phillips
When I own the unlimited power of choice I am able to harness my capacity to grow from any change or challenge that I may encounter as a traumatic brain injury survivor. My experience has taught me to own my power of choice because I realize that I have been created to be a proactive participant in my process. Consequently, the obvious becomes evident to me. I am not a victim of my experience, because I am not helpless. I can choose to learn. I can choose to be empowered through my experience. I can choose to live.
All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better. Ralph Waldo Emerson
