We are currently and simultaneously experiencing a broad range of emotions and feelings that it is not dissipating.
Everything is hitting us all at once including the summer heat.
If you had to choose one from the list above, which one would it be? Why? From last month to this month I will continue to stick with my previous selection as explained below. However, I also have to add HOPE to the list above. I am not sure how I missed it from last time but it is certainly part of the foundation of any resolution of our feelings during this time.
From my perspective I would select INSPIRATION. Without a question I am influenced by the purpose of this blog "Inspire to Overcome"... However, it also applies to the broad range of circumstances that are currently affecting us. I want to believe that from all of the social unrest and after a great deal of listening to learn along with reflection we can all be inspired to change in the way that makes sense to you that afford healing to those who need it.
I want to believe that Inspiration can help you overcome the fear and anxiety you could potentially feel because of the current situation.
This blog, for more than 10 years now, has attempted to convey the message of Inspiration. Learning from others, from their experiences can yield a powerful message that can help you or anyone really overcome physical and mental challenges.
Given the current conditions all around us I feel that continuing to do this post has some value because blood clots are not going to wait for the social unrest or the pandemic to end. It feels strange to try to do this on a time like this as it seems out of place. But then again it could me a massive difference for someone who could be reading the personal account being shared on this month's edition of the blog.
July's edition of Athlete of the Month post brings us someone who is not letting his blood clotting incident define him. He continues to pursue a lifestyle that allows him to stay healthy, teach others to be healthy, do what he loves, and even push the envelope to sign up for an incredible challenge in NYC. Please read on to learn more about CHARLES and his life beyond blood clots.
