Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to have you around my table. Thank you. Several days ago I wrote the article, Creating after Brain Injury. Following a brain injury life may not make sense to us. How we once spent our time and what we loved to do may have changed. As a result we may find ourselves becoming discouraged and disheartened. We may ask ourselves, “What’s the point, anymore?”.
Well, I have good news for you. Some thing I have learned through my own brain injury recovery process. We can rise again. Rise from what appear to be “ashes”. We can find a way that will work for us. We can find a way to do what we loved to do before we sustained our brain injuries. Our lives are not over. In fact, they have just begun. We can learn how to create in ways that will enhance our lives and the lives of those individuals in our world.
Life no longer needs to look like “it” used to look before our brain injuries. We can instead create a new life. A life in which we learn how to use what we have in ways that will work for us. A life in which we no longer have to be limited by our limitations.
“Do what you can, where you are, with what you have.” Theodore Roosevelt
“I am only one, but still I am one.I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do.” Helen Keller
Below is an excerpt from the article:
“Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to have you around my table. In today’s article, I would like to encourage you with some thing that has and encourages me. This encouragement comes in the form of different quotes.
These quotes remind me that I can start over at any time. What may have previously worked for me, may no longer work. No worries. I can learn how to create in ways that work for me now. I can create and paint a different picture. A picture of hope. I can use many colors.
“Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” Zig Ziglar
This quote reminds me that I can forget what lies behind and move forward. The quote reminds me that I can choose to start now. The quote reminds me that I can begin to create and expand my abilities. The quote reminds me that through starting now, I can bring about different results in my life.
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. Once we start walking before long we will be able to look back and see how far we have come in our process and on our journey.” Craig J. Phillips MRC, BA
This quote reminds me that although the journey may seem so long, taking the first step counts. By taking the first step I give myself the ability to accomplish things that I may never have dreamed possible. The quote reminds me that as I keep moving I am assured that I will make progress.”
