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.
