Welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy you have decided to include me in your day. I have been thinking about acceptance today. Acceptance enables me to let go of that which I can not change. I can not change that I am a traumatic brain injury survivor and you may have matters that are out of your control too. The good news of our realities is that you and I do not have to stop living, the life that we imagined.
If you advance confidently in the direction of your dreams and endeavor to live the life that you have imagined… You will meet with success unexpected in common hours. Henry David Thoreau
I am empowered by my choice to not give up on the process or on myself. I do not have to be discouraged by my limitations or deficits. I do not have to be held captive by what I can not do because of a traumatic brain injury. You do not have to be held captive by matters that are out of your control. We can chose to look for solutions, despite what appears to be impossible. We can make the decision to focus on the possibilities. (Please read my post, Following your bliss…regardless)
If you do not like something, change it, if you can not change it, change the way you think about it.
Our attitudes whether positive or negative set the course of our lives. When I chose to be negative I focus on my problems. When I chose to be positive I look for and expect that I will find solutions. My persistence and tenacity in either direction (negative or positive) will yield the fruit of my perception. When I take responsibility for my attitude, I am empowered to live the life I have imagined one day at a time.
