I have been thinking about something that I would like to share with you. I have been thinking about faith. I have heard a definition of faith, "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen." Hebrews 11 verse 1. What I do with my faith is up to me. In my experience, I have found that I don't have the big picture. I have been thinking about … [Read more...]
Finding Purpose following a Brain Injury
Following a brain injury finding one's purpose can be a challenge. What was once understood and clear to us may now be unclear. In my experience, I sought for clarity for many years. What I thought was my calling and the way I was to live my destiny did not work out. I struggled in this process for many years. In my experience the answers did not come over night. Increasing clarity came to me as when I stopped trying to prove that I was not impacted by a brain injury.
Stopped denying that I was living with the impact of a brain injury and an invisible disability. When I stopped trying to live in the truth of people not living with the impact of a brain injury and an invisible disability. When I started to own my reality and live in my truth, my purpose became more clear to me.
Once I arrived at a place of acceptance of what could not be changed, I became willing to try some thing different. Once I became open to trying some thing different, I started to explore my truth. After I started to explore my truth, it took me another 6 years. Although there was more struggle during these 6 years to find my truth, I am glad that I did not give up on the process. I share my experience with you to encourage you to not give up on your process.
Although your process may take time, as my process took time for me, to gain clarity don't give up. Keep searching and asking questions. Clarity will come for you. The process just takes time. At least it did for me.
Matters will become clear to you in time. Articles that I share through this category include information that helped me through the process of finding my purpose in life. May you be encouraged to not give up in your process of finding your purpose. May you be encouraged to stay committed to your process. May you stay committed to running your race. May you be encouraged to not give up on finding and living your truth. More will be revealed in time.
"A brain injury is merely a switch on the railroad of life that directs us down a different track of life. A track that we may not have otherwise traveled. The good news is that as we move down that track we can learn. We can learn how to use our gifts, talents and abilities in ways that work for us. In ways that will help us to find and fulfill our purpose." Craig J. Phillips MRC, BA
