As an individual living with a brain injury, we may feel helpless. In feeling helpless we may focus on our brain injuries. As a result, we may find ourselves distracted, not realizing that we have tremendous power. The power to choose. The power to create. The power to defy the odds.
The Power to move beyond the box of our limitations.
The Power to start defying the odds.
The Power to start winning in life.
The Power to realize that slow and steady wins the race.
The power to create a good life for ourselves. The power to move beyond the “when’s” and “if’s” in our recovery process. The power to stop waiting for things outside of us to change. The power to get busy. The power to explore how to use our gifts, talents and abilities to defy the odds.
“Everyone is trying to accomplish something big, not realizing that life is made up of the little things.” Frank A. Clark
“Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.” Maria Robinson
“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.” Craig J. Phillips MRC, BA
