Changing your brain chemistry isn’t so mysterious, really…

Mindpower (The Amazing Power of the Human Mind)

Human brain in x-ray view

Changing your brain chemistry isn’t so mysterious, really. Ways (SIMPLE) to get the good chemistry flowing: hugs, music, exercise learning, laughter and more (laughter??).
So who needs psychiatrists. Well anyway, most of them are even crazier than me!

Sharing some Information and Thoughts on Head and Brain Injury

I feel, no matter how dire a situation, hope is the key, as well as viewing our difficulties as challenges to be overcome along life’s journey, as well as offering opportunities to grow.
We mustn’t have a victim attitude. NEVER! No matter what has happened to us, there are always new beginnings and new opportunities. Each one of us has positive attributes and we must not let our difficulties define us. They are merely challenges to overcome and you can develop strategies to compensate for these deficits. No matter how significant the injury, never think you are disabled… because disability is a state of mind.
“Don’t let what you can’t do stop you from doing what you can do…best.”

“It’s not the critic who counts. It’s not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled. Credit belongs to the man who really was in the arena, his face marred by dust, sweat, and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs to come short and short again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming. It is the man who actually strives to do the deeds, who knows the great enthusiasm and knows the great devotion, who spends himself on a worthy cause, who at best, knows in the end the triumph of great achievement. And, who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and cruel souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”

  ― Theodore Roosevelt
