The importance of listening

Posted on 23 October, 2016 at 18:40 Comments comments (0)

Hi Everyone,


Today's blog is about the importance of listening.  I remember way back, when Doc was recovering and the speech pathologist had said to me, how important it was to go back to basic communication skills when talking.  Just getting Doc's attention first, before speaking and to really listen when he was talking, was so very important.  I found that to become more easier over the years and it really made sense to me to do that.  The amount of in...

Opening the library

Hi Everyone,

This post will be about opening the library, my library, the one that helped me get through those rough times during Doc's recovery.

My go to book is always Louise L Hay's "You Can Heal Your Life".  It helped me be calm when I needed to be, to have faith where I faulted and to give me guidance when I needed it.  Her positive affirmations were so uplifting, that to this day I follow them daily.  I've always had her calendar that has an affirmation a day....

The big day

Hi Everyone,


It was an incredibly big day yesterday, I was on The Daily Edition on Channel 7, here in Sydney Australia.  The nerves were very high, but bearable.  I had the producer Nora Hunter keeping me in check, she was so brilliant in her manner.

I went to hair and makeup to start, that seemed like such a dream.  My son Kurtis was with me, which also helped me to stay grounded throughout the process.

Before I knew it, I was shaking hands with ...

Interviewing Doc

Hi Everyone,


Over the next few weeks, I will be interviewing Doc on his journey to recovery.

We will cover many topics about all his experiences from arriving at hospital to coming home.  I hope to bring some perspective from a person who has suffered injuries through an accident, as we journey together through Doc's experience through his eyes.

I look forward to bringing you this interesting interview.

Tips for harnessing your inner strength

Posted on 4 October, 2016 at 6:05 Comments comments (0)

Hi Everyone,


This week’s blog is about “Tips on harnessing your inner strength”.

 

 

When I first heard about Doc’s accident, I went into a different world. A world I found was very dark. That insane, unknown world. The one that a lot of us have been thrown into without a choice. There are many tips that I can pass on from my experience, so that hopefully it can lighten someone’s load of heaviness through ...

Write, write, write.

Hi Everyone,

 

There are so many people that I come across who have so much going on. My advice to them is usually to tell them to pick up a pen and paper and write.

 

Most of them say that they don't have the time, or don't know what to write about. I thought that exact same way many years ago, when I first put pen to paper. The first days were so strange, not much said and alot of the time I giggled and laughed at the things I was writing about...

With this blog, I hope to reach out to those that may be going through a similar or totally different experience. Maybe even starting a conversation amongst people about what they have experienced or are experiencing.

 

The recovery process for Doc was a very long one. It went through many diff...

Keep hope alive

Hi Everyone,

 

We all need to keep hope at the top of our priority list, especially when our loved ones have been involved in accidents that leave them unconscious. The part I felt was the most difficult, in such a situation, was walking out of the hospital and leaving Doc there. He hadn’t spoken a word, opened his eyes, or smiled or laughed. It was such an awkward feeling, not being able to hear him speak. I’m sure many of you may ha...
