You CAN, if you THINK you can!

The Winning Mind:

If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don’t;
If you think to win, but think you lost
It’s almost sure you won’t.
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a person’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But sooner or later the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.

Walter D Wintle*

You CAN, if you THINK you can!

Sharing some thoughts to live by (and put a “smile on your dial”…hopefully – from way back in 1998)

Craig's Quotes

man beach dawn“A man (OOPS, or woman) without a dream is destined never to fulfill his or her full potential in life. Never give up on your dream… but take time to smell the flowers on your very individual journey. Be yourself and daily count your blessings; then try to make a difference in the world – however small. Try to shine your own little ray of sunshine to make the lives of others easier in some small way.”

“You can derive the greatest pleasure from treading the wildest uncertain path down the ‘river of life…and just being you.”

Sharing some uplifting thoughts on head/brain injury

Sharing some Information and Thoughts on Head and Brain Injury

Just sorting out some of my brain injury quotes (quite a “muddle/mission”)
enjoy these thoughts

“NO two brain injuries are the same”
“Traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects and upsets life on multiple levels: physical, psychological, social, and even spiritual.”
“I do not bewail what I have lost, because I am at peace with myself. I have fought a hard battle, given it my best, and won far more that I or anyone else ever thought I would.”

Whilst the brain injury may significantly affect/impact many areas of your life…
“You are not defined by your traumatic brain injury”
and
“Don’t let your tbi define you!”

“Whilst you are not defined by your brain injury, your life may have been. Just work within the constraints of your TBI and around it, so that we never become a ‘victim’…

The experience of loss does not have to leave us with the memory of a painful event that stands alone, like a towering monument that dominates the landscape of our lives. Loss can also leave us with the memory of a wonderful story…”

Beyond the Zone: God and The Spiritual Journey

One of my favorite spiritual writers, Jerry Sittser, professor and author of A Grace Disguised, lost his wife, daughter, and mother in a car crash caused by a drunk driver. He paints a comforting picture of what it looks like to find hope in the face of loss:

The experience of loss does not have to leave us with the memory of a painful event that stands alone, like a towering monument that dominates the landscape of our lives. Loss can also leave us with the memory of a wonderful story. It can function as a catalyst that pushes us in a new direction, like a closed road that forces us to turn around and find another way to our destination. Who knows what we will discover and see along the way? The suffering my children, family, friends, and I have experienced is part of an ongoing story…

Finding hope in the face of loss

Sharing some Information and Thoughts on Head and Brain Injury

2016-03-25-1458920195-9846886-sqy05me36u
Webster’s dictionary defines hope as “to expect or wish… to be optimistic… to cherish a desire of good… with expectation of obtaining it or belief that it is obtainable…to place confidence in, to trust with confident expectation of good.”

I hadn’t thought much about the meaning of hope before my son Zach’s major brain injury while playing football, but with his prognosis of “death to full recovery or anything in between,” I hoped for his full recovery.
