Just enjoying it

I’m pretty tired, this week. I’ve been all up in my head, because of all the drama at work, with people being moved around and worrying about where they’re going to land.

And I lost sight of a few things:

  1. A lot of the people I work with are at the office each day by default. They are not entrepreneurial in nature, and they go to work (in part) to avoid having to figure out their life’s course. They have their permanent full-time jobs because they want someone else to make decisions for them and tell them what to do.
  2. Expecting someone else to make the right decisions for you is a losing battle. Chances are, you and your needs are not even on their radar.
  3. I am not the sort of person who wants anyone else to tell me what to do.
  4. I am the sort of person who figures it out for myself, by myself.
  5. Much that has everyone else worried, concerned, and worked up, has nothing to do with me.
  6. And most importantly – I’m being influenced by fears and insecurities that I do not share – nor ever want to.

In a way, seeing all this drama going on around me is a good reminder of where I truly want to be in the world.

I guess I’ll go to work now…

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.
