Changing patterns of thinking can transform our lives

DON’T SET LIMITATIONS (for yourself)

see http://www.beyondboundarieslimits.wordpress.com

Changing old thinking leads to new truths.

You CAN change your thoughts (for the better) – which change the brain chemistry in the “top two inches”.

it’s a new way to react, to respond to negative events in your life

This is a choice (but requires effort and practice to master)

Choose to respond positively and you will reap different outcomes in your life

Right thinking releases right living

it’s not just about a change in thinking . When you get your “tinking” right!, your heart’s right.

So your actions get right!

Differences amongst us!

Inspirational Leader

Pair-Of-ApplesNo two brain injuries are alike. Because of this, one thing may help one person but not the other ones. There is no manual to treating others with a brain injury. In addition there is always a negative stigma against those. It is just how society is and although we may attempt to change it, it will just return back to the same way of thinking.

With that said, my injury is very unique. I was not expected to do many of the things that I am doing today, in fact my parents were told to put me in a nursing home and get on with their life.

What exactly is this?

Here’s the definition:

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition that’s triggered by a terrifying event — either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms may include flashbacks, nightmares, and severe anxiety, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.

Sadly, the nervous system is stuck in a flight or fright mode that leaves people with PTSD in a chronic state of nervous ups and downs, which can be debilitating.
