'HEADSTRONG: Surviving A Traumatic Brain Injury Without Losing My Mind' Offers Life-Saving Tips
New Book "HEADSTRONG: Surviving A Traumatic Brain Injury Without Losing My Mind" (Brown Books Publishing Group) by Donna Valentino provides readers with valuable life-saving tips, hope, and resiliency. A true story that proves the right attitude can get anyone through the journey.
Valentino is a powerhouse of positive energy with a lot to be grateful for this holiday season. She is living proof that the triumph of the human spirit and mind makes all the difference.
"I survived a traumatic brain injury because my competitive, stubborn, and headstrong nature wouldn't hear of it any other way," says Donna. "If you live, laugh, love, and respect yourself, and respect others, all good things will come to you."
Her message is simple:
- Don't give up.
- There a reason why this happened.
- There is no answer to the why question.
- Be strong.
- Have a positive attitude.
- Demonstrate incredible levels of courage, and faith.
- Learn to break free of mental bonds, and allow "the clouds to lift you as you improve."
Valentino is still on the rehab train, and probably will be for the rest of her life. Her major takeaway is, "to embrace the person you've become, and pay it forward."
