The Hero in You

"If you look inside your heart; a hero lies in you,"
~ Mariah Carey

 Mariah Carey performs a fantastic song that strikes a nerve with me in relation to so many aspects of life. Everyone will experience trouble and difficulties in life. Mariah Carey’s song reminds us to not lose touch with our inner strength. Truthfully the goal is for each individual to be able to be motivated by his/her self. I have found it much easier to be motivated when there is an example. I am a huge advocate for everyone having a mentor to help shape his/her goals.

Mariah Carey expresses, “It’s a long road when you face the world alone”. This statement is so true and it in fact does not have to be true. I recently learned of an online community that refers to survivors of a brain injury as a banded together “tribe”. I feel as though it is extremely helpful to be united with others so that nobody feels that they are alone facing the challenges of this injury. So much comfort comes from the strength in numbers that can be felt from a banded community. I have been extremely pleased at the number of resources that are available if you in fact take the time to look. I would love to know who else has found support by other survivors. I am drawn to the incredible need I feel is satisfied by the development of more support groups. Personally I try to make myself accessible to any survivors that I come into contact with. I want every survivor that I come into contact with to know that they have at least one other survivor who is in his/her corner. I would love to hear any thoughts that you may have and I thank you for reading.
