Back to the Beginning: Ralph Waldo Emerson Quote (posted Oct. 6, 2010)


“The purpose of life is not to be happy.
It is to be useful,
to be honorable,
to be compassionate,
to have it make some difference that you have lived
and lived well.”

~~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Received this in a Thought for Today email.  I dedicate this to all warriors (TBI or not) who strive (or have striven to) to live well and make a difference.

TBI x3, that's me! If you had a Traumatic Brain Injury (or Injuries!) and knew you might not remember dates, events, people, etc., would you live each day differently? Would you give more, forgive more, heal more? I am. The statistics for me developing Dementia or Alzheimer's is a high possibility - one, because of the TBIs, and two - because I'm genetically predisposed. Come with me as this present moment is all we know we have... Wishing you all the best - today & always. Blessings, Love & Peace, RH
