You may hurt
You may have an injury
You may have been told something scary by a doctor
But you aren't written off yet.
If you're still breathing, you are alive.
If you are alive you can take control
If you take control you can make improvement.
1% improvement, each and every day.
We never know how far you can go in your recovery, but every person I've worked with who has committed themselves to the process makes progress. It may be painfully slow, but it's progress.
Forward movement is forward movement.
You are not broken. Bones heal, muscles repair themselves, scars fade. Your nervous system, your brain remembers. So by taking control, you show your brain who's boss, you say to it, I am not broken, I will improve.
