HAPPY NEW YEARS my hope is that we realize and fulfill or destinies

I realize I am only a few years into my life with a TBI but the road has been so cloudy and harsh with many obstacles usually from those I have loved..  But there has to come a point where we can accept and embrace and make the best out of what we might have been dealt.  I have had so many failures over the last few years, but I kept trying fail or not and every now and then I would experience some success though few and far in between.  But I am getting better at knowing when I am riding a…

Connection, Vulnerability, Shame, & Empathy

This is a short 8 minute talk by Brené Brown, PhD, a researcher at the University of Houston.  I am posting this talk here because of what she explains about Connection, Empathy, Shame, and Vulnerability.  

Connection is our ability to forge meaningful authentic connections with other people.  If you think about connection on a continuum on one end is anchored by Empathy.  It is what moves us toward deep meaningful…

Christmas?

I'm not crazy about Christmas because i don't understand why people buy each other presents, and for what?

The meaning of Christmas is to go to church and celebrate the birth of Jesus and pray!, not to buy each other gifts,

because it's not our birthday, yet we act like we're celebrating each other!--How corny and stupid is that!!!

I just think stores compete with each other to see who can have the best sales and make the most profit and i really think it's become…

Angels Cast Light

Everything I have ever read about angels says they are beings of light, radiant beyond earthly comprehension.  That being so, then angels must cast light, not shadows.  It follows, then, that when you are surrounded by light the angels must be very near to you.  What, then, do the shadows imply?  Well, the only way a shadow can form is if a bright light source is obstructed in some way.  So, when there are shadows, it is because the angels are…

The Passion that now Escapes Me

I'm beginning to become more comfortable with myself. I'm starting to realize that I AM NOT A LOSER!!! I have also realized that those who think I am are ignorant, are not my Friends and most likely do not have my "best interest" in their heart.



I was injured and am now trying to pick up the pieces of my existence.



I do exist for a reason. That reason right now is to clean our home, do laundry and to start cooking as I try to figure the rest out. I've…

New Me - (not so bad)

One of the hardest things for a survivor is to let go of the past, who we were. Not all who have had a brain injury totally lose who they are but many do, and I am one of those. Though i am just over 4 years into this journey there are many things I can not accept but I am working on it.

There are so many great things about this new me, I must now learn to apply that into living again for myself. I have so much to offer but I must learn balance and have some fun too. There is…

Boundaries

One positive that has come out of my injury is that I've learned how to establish and hold firm to boundaries. I need to establish boundaries not only because it helps me while I focus on my healing but also that it allows me to somewhat control the clutter or stimulus that runs through my damaged brain.



I've also found these boundaries as empowering as they do allow me to control who comes into my life as well as how and or what type of energy I'm going to expose myself…

At Peace with my Decision to Focus on my Healing

I work for a Bully. Maybe I should say have worked for a bully, as I am in the process of leaving. I'll know more tomorrow as H.R. completes their process.



I have known this since I started nearly ten (10) years ago but I've sat silent as I've watched our entire staff turn-over. I am the, Last One Standing. I guess in my mind I thought it better to be quiet than the victim or the target. It worked, until I fell injuring my brain. Once he figured out that I was struggling, that I needed… Continue

No More @#% Pep Talks!!

This site is the one place I know I can rant about peoples obsessive need to give pep talks instead of listening to what I am saying!

Thank God for rehab professionals. They keep me sane! So do you all. So do many people. But many other people don't get it at all.

Angry, Sad, Scared, Happy and Confused

The above emotions seem to sum up my feelings towards life. Each vary in their intensity at any given time and I may even feel each at once at the same time. Figure that???

For those who know me, you are well aware of the range of emotions I've experienced the last two years.

I appreciate all of your support!!

I think my anger is starting to stabilize as I accept myself as I now am but doing so has led me into a place of depression and/or…
