Culmination Gift…

February 24, 2011

 

Life is a series of linked events, but today’s date (Feb 11th) is the defining moment of which I term my “culmination gift.”  My “culmination gift”  of 02/11/2007 was to receive closed head Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI where cranium is not broken), Spinal Cord Injury (SCI fractures and dislocation to vertebrae C5 C6 C7 & T1), Diffuse Axonal Injury (DAI), and 63 days of non-responsive coma, to name the “few most” prominent.  The options for me by the surgeon were to be dead or a vegetable but I am here sharing and exchanging with you. I understand the rarity of my recovery from my fatal injury but my autobiography is more than a “simple” account of my injury.  Go to “my official” external page (www.getting-therebook.com) to “see” as “my work” best exemplifies more than “who” I am, but what I’m about…

Selflessly,

p.s. All of my success is found within the “Hope” that “YOU” provide me with along my “Getting There…”  “Your Hope” provides me with all the fundamental necessities to have success; shared selflessly it becomes “ours.”  “Happiness,” “Love,” and “Hope” are the “three base fundamentals” of our journey we share globally.”

Life Within The Story

August 8, 2010

Life within the story questions Pt I

(in-depth book chapter questions)

a)     Which day of your work week do you typically tend to “popularly anticipate” and why?

A I. Do you “overlook” time, if the day you anticipate is not until several days from the current moment?

 b)     What particular tragic historical moment do you think the book alludes to in this section?

“And you may think, “Well, the only possible way this workday at the office wouldn’t occur is if some ‘freak-accident’ happened…” something illogical yet possible like a plane crashing into your building where you work daily and approximately 15 minutes later…” 

 B II. How would your perspective change?  Would you enjoy and be thankful for what you dreaded or cursed all yesterday, morning, or 20 minutes ago? 

c)     Think of a day you dread going to work and during the particular moment that idea engulfs your outlook, but what if you experienced a “fatally tragic” moment as the one which the book alludes to in the first chapter?

Story Within The Life

b) The various aspects that are linked to you having a negative perspective are they worth these things:

One example per aspect is given to help better relate/clarify what is meant.

Health? (As some people experience escalation of blood pressure and it may lead to a possible fatal “accident” and it is not always done immediately/directly after the incident but the same incident can be the main catalyst that spurred off the fatal reaction/accident)

Emotional balance? (As some people once down remain in a “bad” mood, easily can displace anger, and it is not always done immediately/directly after the incident but the same incident can be the main catalyst that spurred off the disliked or unwanted negative behavior/actions)

Mental balance? (As some people become overly defensive or “paranoid” taking away to even allow a fair opportunity to trust others, and it is not always done immediately/directly after the incident but the same incident can be the main catalyst that spurred off the automatic “shut down” towards others)

Physical balance? (As some people “solve” through comfort food but this “coping mechanism” is not always done immediately/directly after the incident, but the same incident can be the main catalyst that spurred off the “comfort want.” It can occur at some regularly scheduled eating time during the day as a “reward” or for some people an escape/avoidance)

“Time is something you do not control. What you do control is whether or not you are optimistic despite what you may face!”

Story within the life questions Pt I (general chapter questions) :

a) Are there times when you feel “rushed” and because of the time sensitivity of the “project” at hand you get angered or frustrated with your lack of “time control?” If your answer is yes, then the more important question at hand is towards your perspective. How is your perspective when “it” is approached? “It” can be a little thing/simple task that you forgot to do but if you were to do it after your moment of remembrance, your entire day’s routine is subject to many unaccounted for time schedule changes.
