Hold fast to dreams

"Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken winged bird that cannot fly.”

Langston Hughes reminds us to never get too bogged down in our everyday lives.

An individual should always be encouraged to allow his/her mind to imagine and dream. A favorite quote of mine is one that I found that says; “Keep your eyes on the stars, while keeping your feet grounded.”

A person should always be encouraged to allow his/her mind to wander. Imagination is a beautiful thing as long as it is not taken too unrealistically. The recovery from any type of a serious and life altering injury is difficult; a brain injury is certainly no exception. The main reason that I so deeply enjoy these support groups that I attend is that people join together as a community and share what is noteworthy that is going on in his/her lives. I think it is incredibly encouraging to here from others who are in your similar life situation.

I would love to hear who else has attended a support group for any reason and what his/her experience was. The caretakers are encouraged to attend as well and they often can share their thoughts in regard to certain topics. Differing viewpoints always make for a better rounded discussion. I am extremely encouraged for our support group to begin. There is always room for improvement in the discussion setting. I thank you very much for reading and look forward to any responses that you may have.

I thought it would be very intense and magical and perhaps a bit spooky. lucid dreaming stories
