Sitting on a "Gold Mind"

  Have you ever heard the phrase "you're sitting on a gold mine"?  I'm sure you have. I'd like to think it isn't a gold mine we are sitting on, but a "gold mind". The nature of PTSD, TBI, trauma, and many types of mental health issues is a feeling of worthlessness, defeat, failure, and like you are at some sort of a dead end in your life. What I have learned is that this dead end isn't a dead end at all, it is simply the beginning of awakening to a new way of looking at your life. 

Your experiences, whether perceived as good or bad, are valuable. These experiences have infused you with a wisdom and an insight that only you can uncover. It is this "gold mind" that lies within you. Your brain, whether injured, flooded, confused, or frustrated is a wealth of valuable insights, ways of seeing the world, and ways of connecting with other people that we can all learn from.

I do agree that it takes time to embrace something tragic as being useful or insightful in our lives, but given some tools to connect with ourselves we begin to see the value in all of our experiences....not just the ones we think are positive.
