Episode 7 Season 2
My Super Awesome Life
“Sometimes life's better understood backwards rather than forwards.”
— Jane Enright
Life changes constantly – but what happens when three incredibly sudden rapid changes occur in just 12 months? And more importantly, what are the best tools to use to cope with life’s unexpected twists and turns?
This episode of No Magic Bullet’s is an installment of What’s In Your Toolbox, a podcast about mental health and the tools that we use to cope, heal, and thrive. In this episode, host Bobby K sits down with Jane Enright, a brain injury survivor, an author, and blogger behind “My Super Awesome Life”.
During this conversation, Bobby and Jane talk about Jane’s three massive life changes (two traumatic brain injuries and the death of a friend), practising mindfulness through writing in order to process the fallout of the changes, and what recovery looks like afterwards.
This episode discusses:
How life can change instantaneously, and the steps Jane took to navigate her sudden life changes
What focusing on what we have, rather than what we don’t have, can do to change our perspective
