Love that Ben Franklin!

Ben Franklin's quote:

While we may not be able to control all that happens to us, we can control what happens inside us.

Hey Louisa!

That was one smart man. How we react and how we respond is key. But hey, it's still awful to even hear the AVM word (as you well know) and feelings are valid (Good and bad). Thanks for posting this wonderful quote! :J

Thanks for sharing, Louisa! :)

There are many studies that show people with a positive attitude heal faster and have much better chance of recovery from major life changee, like an AVM and stroke.

I truley believe that positivity is a huge part of recover!

Me too! I always try to stay positive. Not always easy but it realy does make a difference.

Thanks for posting Louisa. So very true, especially in recovery from AVMs. Couldn't have said it better myself:-) It's certainly a reminder that attitude is critical, especially a positive one.
