Since my Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) diagnosis, I aim to live in the present, to accept my vulnerability and struggles, and to share my journey with others so that more people dare to speak up when they're struggling. It's ok not to be ok.
We should ask each other 'R U OK?' not just once a year, but every day!
Nowadays, I strive to live happily amidst uncertainty. It is an ongoing process but such a worthwhile and necessary one. It is the hardest of challenges I've ever taken on.
My brain injury may have been a blessing in disguise. Thanks to that scary split second (car accident) in July of 2020, and because of my mindfulness meditation journey, I have discovered a renewed appreciation for life. I now pay attention to the things that matter the MOST. I have learned that what I used to call 'little' things are not little.
I know for sure that Mindfulness is life-changing, and I'm so excited about making a difference in the life of others thanks to my project Vida Flow.
As Master Thich Nhat Hanh wisely said, "Many people are alive but don't touch the miracle of being alive… Live the actual moment. Only this moment is life.”
