The most Basic Virtue after a TBI is Cognition

51yApIJ669L._SX312_BO1,204,203,200_

What is the most important thing to the TBI Survivor for improvement? Some would think perseverance and some would think consistency. Both are important, but there may be an even more influential virtue.

I suggest that the most influential virtue is “thought.” It is not what a person thinks, but that there is the ability to think in the first place.

A few more thoughts from me to end off

What we think is vitally important, because our thoughts (consciousness) determine our actions…

and  consequently the outcomes of our lives

 

“It’s not what you think you are

but

what you think

YOU are!”

Change your thoughts and you’ll change your world…

and perhaps you’ll even help change the world (for the better) in some (small) way.

“Together, one mind, one life (one small step at a time), let’s see how many people (and lives) we can encourage, impact, empower, enrich, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials…and strive for and perhaps one sunny day even achieve their wildest dreams.”

Closing off Comments (unless registered with WordPress) – SORRY

Sorry, but being bombarded with spam and questions (“silly!”* ) mixed in amongst the many thousands of great messages of thanks (much appreciated, as the reason I write is to share)

I have very limited cognitive energy, so have to use it best…writing my books.

 

Thanks for the understanding

Hi
Am getting so many thousands of comments on this blog (especially recently on my article The Cognitive Effects of Head Brain Injury), was considering closing them off (because I get really tired reading and replying sometimes). However, I really do appreciate your writing in and so  thought I may just approve a few of the best comments daily, so I can focus far more on my new books …and that pays the bills!
Thanks for the understanding
all the best
“early bird” c (my best time)
Thanks for the follow/link/like/reblog and/or  kind thought(s)
(but if you are following me, my close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera*!)
* By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

Hi

CAN’T KEEP UP…BUT THANKS FOR THE “THANX”


I’ve had many many hundreds of thousands of comments on my various other WordPress blogs at 
https://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2011/09/09/craigs-list-of-blogs-updated-sept-2011/
in recent years …true!) …a few of my blogs went “balistically viral” a few years back.

Obsessive or WHAT! Am really pleased you are enjoying my writings, as the reason I write is to share. However I am unable to keep up with the comments and was spending entire days just on replies on my various blog pages.

Though I’m rather “driven”, I still get really, really fatigued (there’s a few books there). so sorry can’t reply individually to all you good people scattered around the planet, but DO try to read as many as possible daily (and even moderate a few when I get a “mo”), I got swamped with comments on my various blogs, so have had to close them off on all of my blogs, except for one or two of particular interest to me – sorry and hope you can understand.

* “Don’t bend; don’t water it down; don’t try to make it logical; don’t edit your own soul according to the fashion. Rather, follow your most intense obsessions mercilessly.”

~ Franz Kafka

I do really appreciate your liking, linking to and/or following this blog (and “writing in”), so “thanks for the thanx”

“As we live and move and have our being, so from this vision, we create heaven in our own lives… and perhaps even heaven on earth.”
– craig (as inspired by Acts 17:28 and the words of Felicia Searcy)

“Aim at the earth and you may not get off the ground.a
“Aim at the stars and you may reach the moon.”
“Aim at heaven and you’ll have earth thrown in…
and you may even hit the stars.”
– craig (as inspired by the famous quote by CS Lewis – 24th May 2012)

“When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
– Leonardo da Vinci

When (or if ever) you arrive in heaven, let faith, hope and love be the wings that carried you there.”

– as adapted from the inspiring words of Jonathan Edwards, former minister in New England, Massachusetts

“The Greatest Race: Living by (with) faith, hope and love is the highest podium any person can reach, God’s podium that anyone stand on.”
– c

“Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life one that ANYONE can run and win.”

from http://racetothechequeredflag.wordpress.com/

“If a man is called to be a street-sweeper,
he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,
or Beethoven composed music, or
Shakespeare wrote poetry.
He should sweep streets so well
that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,
here lived a great street sweeper
who did his job well.”
– Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.

Instead of trying to reply to each one of you, I’ll just keep on writing

“I wish you well on a rainy day
I wish you rainbows to brighten your day
To feel your quiet moments with a special kind of warmth
to remind you that happiness can happen
when you least expect it.

I wish you rainbows to make you laugh and smile
to show you the simple beauty of life
and to give you the magic of dreams come true.

I wish you rainbows
I wish you well.”

– Larry S. Chengges

”Since I can never see your face,
And never shake you by the hand,
I send my soul through time and space
To greet you. You will understand.”

– James Elroy Flecker (1884-1915)

What Does it Feel Like to be Brain Damaged?

Sharing some Information and Thoughts on Head and Brain Injury
