SPEAK OUT! Itty-Bitty GIANT Steps
Donna O’Donnell Figurski
What have you accomplished this week? Have you met any goals – BIG or small? It can be as teeny as blinking an eye – something that most of us take for granted, never think twice about. But for someone with no motion in his or her body, this would be a monumental accomplishment.
Your “giant step” may be tying a shoe, walking a few steps, not interrupting a conversation, or remembering an appointment. Or maybe you started a new job or are heading to college. All these are accomplishments.
SPEAK OUT! Itty-Bitty Giant Steps will provide a venue for brain-injury survivors and caregivers to shout out their accomplishments of the week.
If you have an Itty-Bitty Giant Step and you would like to share it, just send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. It need only be a sentence. I’ll gather the accomplishments and post them with your name on my blog approximately once a week. (If you do not want your last name to be posted, please tell me in your email.)
I hope we have millions of Itty-Bitty Giant Steps.
