The content of this post is a slight departure from the content of my usual posts. Rather than write about recovery tips for survivors and the people who interact with them, I would like to explain why I started the blog and why I continue to write posts.

Some people have speculated my decision to blog has something to do with my journey to overcome the devastating effects of cancer and brain injury. While this is correct, it is not the complete reason. Others have suggested that I find writing to be relaxing and therapeutic. This is also true, but learning to blog, researching potential posts, and learning to use social media are very time consuming and they are not always relaxing or therapeutic. Some people have never considered why I write — I understand and I am not upset by that possibility.

HelpThe real reason I write is I enjoy helping people. I may never be a Nobel prize recipient, the person who cures cancer, the person who negotiates world peace, or the person who eliminates world wide-poverty. However, I can make a difference by sharing my experiences and encouraging others to succeed.

    1. Mona, I appreciate your review and I am flattered by your words. As you know, I never feel like I am doing enough. Even if I have helped many people, I have a strong desire to help more. Did you have a chance to read the post titled “Cognitive Benefits of Music“? Best regards, Scott
