Go with your heart!

Whenever someone asked me if I was passionate before or after the strokes, I would look at them like they were crazy. The word passionate wasn’t even in my vocabulary. I am a scientist. I have been like this way all my life.  I am curious, but I don’t get into the feelings. What about you? Are you passionate?

The website Dictionary.com defines passionate as an adjective that is expressing, showing, or marked by intense or strong feeling; emotional. There are other definitions, but this one is what I mean. 

By going into veterinary medicine, it allowed me to feel my feelings sometimes. However, I remain fascinated by the body and how it works. My scientist mode is satisfied. Have you been a touchy, feeling person, or are you a thinking person?

Wait a moment! If you had a stroke or someone that is near and dear to you had a stroke, pay attention. I will lead a group training on Monday, December 27th. Go to my website to learn all about my group training. That’s www.success4lifetime.org. And, will you do me a favor and enter your feedback below. It would make my day! Back to your program!

Our feelings are supposed to get us to do something. We are supposed to respond to our environment. Our brains need to register a feeling just long enough to orient us to what’s important in the environment. In other words, our feelings signal us. They are scanning our environment. Our feelings should fuel a move toward or away from something. That is what our feelings are supposed to do.

Most of us either ignore what we are feeling or we ignore what to do. Remember, everything you feel is valid. If you listen to your feelings and do what they say, you’d be complete. 

Consider stopping by my renamed YouTube channel. It is thestrokerecoverycircle. This is the same name as my Facebook group. My recent video is titled “Which hobbies have you held on after your stroke?” It’s worth looking at my video! Come on!

Thank you! To your success!
