Being challenged in life is inevitable, being defeated is optional.
So everybody we have a choice here. Be intimidated by your stroke or meet it head on and defeat it. And here we have more choices. And either one is acceptable in my mind. You can choose to live with your stroke and any deficits you have. Or you can decide to meet the challenge with a fight! Either way you can win as long as you believe in your decision and are happy with it. For me, the choice is, I won't go down without a fight! What's your choice?
