Meeting people is hard at times when we are all different with our values, morals and personalities. Finding those whom we share common ground with and those who we feel a connection to is also tough. It truly takes skill and being creative without being deceitful or dishonest, to screen those we meet in order to find the “gems” that we want 2 keep. It is like searching for a job and going through many interviews and passing one b4 we get the job. Ideally we want a particular job, just like we want a particular companion 4 a friend or partner. All things that are contributed to, meaning that we give our best effort, are generally rewarded with patience. All things we put effort into are generally rewarded in time. It takes patience and humility, rather than desperation and being overly-confident. Many times we are complimented by certain people that we meet because they possess a quality or ability that we lack in and we possess a quality or ability that they lack in. It is best not to envy or become jealous because that will create tensions and mistrust, insecurity and other pessimistic behaviours. We want our quests to be positive, healthy and uplifting. Plus, we most likely want to find a friend or companion who is a keeper.


When all else seems limited or restricted because of physical reasons, mental reasons, financial reasons and even mobility reasons, the internet can serve as a useful outlet in order for matters to be more achievable. Consistent and honest communication with understanding and empathy from those who are worthy is perhaps not common but not impossible. Persistence, patience and humility are  beneficial; and I believe rewarded in some way. Some call it karma. Whether immediate or down the road, the reward is only noticeable to those who are willing to see it. Perhaps it is a learned quality or beneficial influence by someone who has served as a mentor. Perhaps it is a method or advice given to help others prosper in some way. If one seeks with an open mind and a decent heart that is not corrupted with questionable intentions, then one shall find and perceive accordingly. To research or seek information, in order to pursue something; the internet proves very quick and resourceful. It may involve asking the right questions to the appropriate people and even asking for suggestions and feedback if they cannot support one’s pursuit. Being pointed in another directions or guided, is a good thing, as long as it is not an obvious “brush off” or being passed around from people to people. I have yet to meet or hear that someone appreciates or even agrees with the “run around”. It takes only a moment to help someone, rather than pass that helping moment to someone else. Many times a person who originally started out contacting someone in particular, gets the run around only to end up back with that first person. Granted, that person has a story of his/her own as to why or how things happen and it may have rightfully been an opportune time to help. This is why it is good to ask questions rather than assume. There is always a chance, even a tiny one,  of being wrong.

The connections inside the complex human brain are a body’s central processing unit, the manager or executive to one’s lifelong duties or functions. Familiar with the word injury, which means harm or damage that is done to a part of one’s body. Brain injury truly can rearrange the connections in your brain that allow a person to cope, function, think, perform, feel, problem-solve, etc. If these connections are rearranged because of any kind of serious injury to one’s head, then it alters the five senses, as well as one’s cognitive abilities, personality, mobility, employment, partnerships, financial means and other capabilities; if one survives. Helmet laws are wise. Sport equipment is also wise. One would not want to wake to an unknown place with unknown people and unknown as to what has or how something happened. There are resources so people can be educated. It is quite a common injury, as is any injury, but is one of the worst. An amputation, going blind or deaf, paralyzed and other such injuries are manageable. However, the head is the manager of all things, including those other injuries, so protect your head. You spend a certain amount of time becoming familiar with your role in life whether at work, with friends or in a family. Injury to the head can change all of that and can be likened to a stone shot from a catapult.


The  world is varied with personalities, talents, abilities, experiences and views. As a result of that, there are a quite a few clashes, conflicts and debates. Everyone has a unique perspective or opinion, based on the influences of up-bringing, friendships, relationships, even enemies. The media stereo-types much of how people “ought” to be in all forms; spiritually, mentally, physically, emotionally, as spouses, siblings, any kind of relationship, parenting and oneself alone. Situations occur where there is a difference of some kind, but people don’t realize that it’s all about choice, when the situation becomes complicated or escalates. Each one controlls only his/herself, whether actions or words, even thoughts. The outcome or results depend on this very thing. When that control is taken from a person, which is the case a lot unfortunately, there is still control, given resources and support. It is very possible to heal from bad circumstances in some way. I know this from more than 3 different bad experiences. It matters most, how one thinks. The mind is the most powerful tool in the world, which makes things achieveable, attainable and possible. Something that is taken for granted and considered insignificant is actually the most powerful invisible guidance that we have in life when it comes to successes and getting through any scenario.

Mental health issues as a result of brain injury, like brain-damage, which further results in severe depression & suicidal behaviors. The connections inside the brain,  that enable one to think, feel, problem-solve and function; have been rearranged. Therefore, one is disabled in several ways, including mentally. While the addressed resources were to find additional in-home help for the mentally challenged person, but was taking over 2wks, the person had a breakdown tryng to keep up with duties etc. This person initiated the in-home help but was told it could not be family. when this person “snapped” by attempting suicide, the children were removed and now the person has supervised visitation at community services. Regardless of acknowledging the unhealthy mistake, accepting accountability for the mistake, maintaining stability through specific medicine and appointments with different therapists, this person is denied full rights to the children, like several parents who deal with MCFD. This brain-injured, mentally disabled parent takes responsibility, co-operates, remains civil and tactful but would like to hear from others who have or can share info related to the ministry of children and families that is sonewhat like this situation. Given a proven amount of time where stability and progress are shown, the right to parenting will be renewed or upgraded, sort of like getting a promotion for good behaviour and co-operation. It can be likened to a person who has been incarcerated and ends up on parole or probation as a result of good  behaviour and progress which allows society officials to feel more secure about the safety of the person in the community.

The mind is a powerful organ that humans use generally 0.1% – that is POINT ONE PERCENT of, and some studies say 10%. Some truly have mastered more than just the five typical senses – sight, sound, taste, touch and smell. Meditation seriously can train one to be more capable in certain areas. If one does self-talk daily or several times daily, it is guaranteed to create belief. Some call this subliminal messages Think of the few geniuses or those with photographic memory, or any such “gifts”. It is truly possible. Unfortunately, people can be influenced in negative ways from certain persons or experiences. Sometimes terminal illness, intense sickness and any other form of loss influences people negatively. If one chooses to believe in some possibility or ability then it can become reality. The resources are available to help make things possible. Each person has control of the outcomes. It takes a moment of not letting anyone or anything interfere with the potential or possibilities. People are more than just what is known. There is much more. Many do not realize that many things are choices that we have control of.
