For my blog, one question was to ponder whether I should open my readers to comments or not. I considered both alternatives and decided to let the open conversation and discussions flow for all of you. In that way, we challenge ourselves to enlighten and enjoy our point of view.
Maybe, if I have millions and millions of subscribers to my readership, then maybe I could be persuaded otherwise, but I think at this time, I am very comfortable opening up to everyone to debate my posts.
So, last week, when I wrote a post titled, “Difference Between a Joker and a Champion,” certainly, several people commented, and, fortunately, very complementary (which I appreciate.) One of the dialogues bantered about was my communication, specifically, in particular, aphasia, a language disorder after my stroke. As the Mayo Clinic describes,
“Aphasia as a condition that robs you of the ability to communicate. Aphasia can affect your ability to express and understand language, both verbal and written.”
Thought-provoking, I responded the following:
“In some senses, aphasia is a morpheus being; it molds me, shapes me, corrects me and is always both challenging and forgiving (which I appreciate quite a bit.) But at the end of the day, if I am positive and optimistic about objectives living with aphasia, I can achieve almost anything.”
Resolve and Grit
To wit, I have a long hard struggles dealing with the nuances of aphasia and the consequences of it, but I have the resolve, grit and determination to achieve my objectives the best I can do.
And I am not finished yet. My quest for more knowledge and enlightenment keeps me focus regarding my speech. My success with my communications is apparent and I mean that wholeheartedly: I am thirsty and ravage to accomplish even more outcomes.
This is Not Rocket Science
For all the people that have an issue or problem or a conundrum or a headache or an anything else in your own noggin, enough.
In my opinion, and only my opinion, problems are dealt with sizable and effective goals that is both realistic and visionary all at the same time. As I always say, this is not rocket science; perseverance, practice and the ability to understand that life goes on and that everyday is one more joy than the day before is a wonderful concept, isn’t it?
So in conclusion, (especially for those people that have aphasia,) life is a festival! Live life to the fullest and go beyond…
