Another drab day…

But it’s promising to be a good one. 🙂 Things at work are interesting, since the re-org announcement last week. People are still trying to figure out what to do with it.

I know what to do with it — look for the opportunity and go for what’s possible… what’s in front of me.

A lot of people are caught up in the “change thing” — they got really invested in their identities based on their roles as they once were, and now that their roles are changing, they need to adapt their identities along with it.

Personally, I’m working hard towards my own goals. I realized over the past week that I have been living like I used to — neck-deep in debt and not looking to the future, because I was just treading water all the time.

I don’t have to do that anymore. I have some things I can follow through on, some dreams I have been wanting to make a reality for many years. And now that I’m out of debt, I don’t have that same terrible pressure leaning on me.

That’s a relief. And it’s also a relief to realize it. I’m getting my strength back, resting up, getting my head turned around in the right direction, and it feels really good. I tend to be too rigid in my thinking and get stuck in old ways that don’t really have anything to do with how things are now. I am much more fluid now — and that has a LOT to do with having a much shorter commute, and also not having so many bills to pay.

This is good.

The day can bring what it will. I’m good to go.

I am a long-term multiple (mild) Traumatic Brain Injury (mTBI or TBI) survivor who experienced assaults, falls, car accidents, sports-related injuries in the 1960s, '70s, '80s, and '90s. My last mild TBI was in 2004, but it was definitely the worst of the lot. I never received medical treatment for my injuries, some of which were sports injuries (and you have to get back in the game!), but I have been living very successfully with cognitive/behavioral (social, emotional, functional) symptoms and complications since I was a young kid. I’ve done it so well, in fact, that virtually nobody knows that I sustained those injuries… and the folks who do know, haven’t fully realized just how it’s impacted my life. It has impacted my life, however. In serious and debilitating ways. I’m coming out from behind the shields I’ve put up, in hopes of successfully addressing my own (invisible) challenges and helping others to see that sustaining a TBI is not the end of the world, and they can, in fact, live happy, fulfilled, productive lives in spite of it all.
