Adapting to Life After a Crisis - Digital Course
In 2019, I needed brain surgery, which unfortunately led to a cerebellar stroke, long-term facial palsy and the need for a pioneering facial reanimation surgery at 26. Despite the hardships I faced and on-going adaptions I've needed to make - with a visual impairment and visible difference - I've always known that the ability to adapt to life's challenges and 'bounce back' from struggles is a crucial skill we all need in order to cope with stress, reduce anxiety and depression. This is because having resilience helps us find genuine moments of enjoyment despite being faced with situations that don't always go according to plan.
After looking back and establishing what it was that allowed me to turn this crisis into such a beautiful advantage, I wanted to formulate this course to share that knowledge with others.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
My gorgeous necklace arrived today and my daughter is so delighted with it. It is beautifully made and the meaning and sentiment behind it is absolutely beautiful. It’s so wonderful that Sammy has designed another gorgeous piece of jewellery and 10% has been donated to Brainstrust. Thank you so much.
Thank you for writing this blog post. I’ve read this a number of times, particularly after a bout of frustration or tears about what I’m capable of right now. As someone with a very full life before, that’s a hard pill to swallow, but your words tell me to just keep enjoying the little gains and not have expectations on myself.
Lovely lady with an amazing and inspirational story, fast delivery, beautiful and meaningful jewellery and prints. I wear my silver bangle all day every day (even in the shower) and it hasn’t worn at all - amazing quality!
