Today has been a great day. It doesn’t matter than I nearly ran from one class/meeting to the next and didn’t matter that I had a test and that I should probably be studying for my next test. The reason why it doesn’t matter is because I had this conversation today that reminded me just how blessed I am. I have a brain.
Not only do I have a brain, I have a traumatic brain injured brain yet, thank G-d, no scar tissue. I do still get headaches and have head pain when its cold. BUT I have a brain that can think. That can interpret. That can learn, understand and problem solve! I have a brain that now understands MATH!! This is so exciting to me, especially because I hated math and did not understand it before the accident. I have a brain that allows me the freedom to make decisions that are not impulse. Of course, I have my slip ups now and then but still!
I have a brain that allows my body to function. Allows me to move. To think. To generate. To radiate. There is just so much that I would not be able to do if my brain was not the way it is. I may struggle to solve engineering problems or take longer on tests. In fact, I might even forgot words still. I might have “brain blanks” where I literally cannot remember what I was just thinking. But the fact that I was even thinking is so beautiful!!
I am just incredibly grateful for my brain and for G-d’s hand in continually helping my brain to heal.
