Janine Shepherd: A broken body isn’t a broken person

A kind soul on Twitter and Facebook shared a TED talk that really touched my heart.  So, since we don’t have TV here, and I was hoping to find another inspiring talk, I went to TED.com.  Call it coincidence, Godincidence, Serendity, etc.  This particular talk was at the top, and I was intrigued by the title alone.

Yes, brokenness.  It is a topic known to so many, but how does one get through it well?  This is one woman’s courageous story.  I hope it fills your heart up to overflowing as it did for mine.

About Resilient Heart

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

  3. You’re welcome, I’m so glad it touched your heart, Louise. 🙂

  4. Well, the story was different, but it sounded just a bit like mine. “Until you let go of who you are, you can’t be who you can become.” not an exact quote, but … wow!

  5. YES! That’s what I thought too. Very powerful and meaningful use of words communicated in such a way it is not limited to those who have had traumatic accidents, but to anyone who has been broken. I am happy to hear it touched your heart in a powerful way too!! This was definitely something I *had* to share! 🙂
