Do you have faith?

Today, I wanted to talk a bit about faith. Let’s talk first about the emotional distress, along with the physical distress of stroke. The #’s actually say that 33% of people with stroke have a depressed feeling after stroke. I am here to tell you that over 85% of the people that I talk to,

Attitude is Critical

This morning, I’m thinking about my own attitude. I’ve had a busy few weeks, as I’m sure you have as well, and I have to remember to keep my own attitude in check. There are times, especially as a stroke warrior, when we must remind ourselves not to allow quick responses to whatever presents itself

Life is Short.

I, like everyone else, can find myself getting a bit negative and frustrated at times. It’s been busy and a little challenging these past few weeks. I let myself worry about things that have no real meaning. In the past two weeks, we have lost two people who have been important in our lives. Although

Show Yourself Grace

At times we think about how hard this change is that we are experiencing. I know, it can really be an uphill battle, especially at first. Being kind to yourself as you continue to grow and regain your own strength and motivations can be a hard thing. We need grace and, believe it or not,

Support and Accountability

I’ve been thinking about accountability and support this morning. Yesterday, we had a Stroke Warrior Meeting, and on the call I had Becca Switzer with Neuro Base Camp join in and discuss “Persistent Pain”. It was a good session, but in that meeting I started thinking about our own accountabilities within. You can watch the

Here is My Story

This is a bit different for me, but today I thought I’d share a bit about my own story. The reason I thought to do this is because the question does come up…and there is encouragement that may help you in your post-stroke journey. I hope you know that this is to serve you. These

Are you making good choices?

As I sit here this morning, I’m thinking about my priorities. As we go through this life that we are living, no matter what we have been given, we have a lot of decisions to make. These decisions are made every day…every hour…every minute really. We are constantly making choices about our day. I think

Are you a goal-setter?

Thought I’d send out a unique blog post today. I am a believer in goal setting. Actually, I have been this way for quite some time. If you aren’t this type of person, I understand. However, I believe it is a huge key in making progress before or after having a negative thing happen. When

Make a New Commitment

As we move into this last month of the year, I think about setting up a new commitment to myself. Not only to myself, but for my family as well. Yes! I did have a stroke. Yes! I have changed from what I used to do and be. But, it doesn’t mean it is time

Life can be unpredictable.

“Be consistent in your motivation.” These were the words that I had written on a note to talk about this week; but in all honesty, it’s an absolute load of b.s. Truth is we live a life of unpredictable variables that are constantly finding ways to seep under our skin. Tragic life events, loss of friends, employers who

Recognition is Internal.

I’m having a conversation with my friend Ben this morning, and he reminds me about the internal conversations we all have. As we talked about this, he thought it would be a good subject to share with you. There are times in this “After-Stroke” and/or “Brain Injury” life that we all must face…Recognition that we are going through
