Allow Yourself to See New Strengths....

The largest thing that I have learned since my injury is to truly acknowledge what makes me unique. It was not something that occurred over night; it is something that I needed to blossom into. I think that no part of any recovery comes instantaneously. I just met with a woman who is familiar with my injury; she was very excited that I was available to shed hope to the families of traumatic brain injury victims. Imagine that; I have a draw to a hospital administrator because of what I have been through. I would love to hear who else has witnessed their strengths and appeals change based on an experience.  I think for myself, I had to let go of many of my thoughts as to who or what I imagined I was prior, to embrace the new. There is depth to my persona far beyond what I had ever dreamed of prior. I now embrace who I am and where I have come from.

My position is unusual because it celebrates and highlights who I am and what I am trying to accomplish. It has given me the ability to not be embarrassed regarding my disability. I now realize that my mission is to step forward confidently and without reservation on behalf of all of those who have suffered a brain injury. I am able to articulate and reason on behalf of the brain injured population. Maybe I can convince even a few people to consider the importance of the will involved in recovering from a brain injury. What I always try and convey to people is that my recovery was certainly a lot of hard work, determination and good fortune. I cannot allow myself to look into the past. The objective at hand is always from this point forward. At the conclusion of my speaking engagements, I always make sure to mention that “this exact moment is the first moment of the rest of your life”. I think that statement empowers and reminds individuals to realize that at any given moment one can decide to change their viewpoints as to how they are going to conduct their lives. I would love to read any feedback that you may have, as always I thank you in advance.
