Hospital patient undergoing surgery recounts how Hero Soul provided strength, inspiration, and hope during recovery
“I used to look in the mirror and only have time to take a quick glance to ensure that I looked acceptable for a full day ahead of me. At 32, I am a mother of two and a wife of 8 years. I work full time and after putting in a days worth of work, I come home to my next full time job. Dinner, clean up, soccer practice, dance class, homework, baths, laundry… I have a fully hands-on devoted husband that equally shares in the daily responsibilities but even then it is still so busy at times.
I recently ruptured my Achilles tendon. I needed to have surgery and knew that my recovery period would take several months. Anxious the morning before surgery I began reading, “Psychology of the Hero Soul.” It was given to me to read by a friend at work. I began reading the book and it had a calming affect on me. I knew I had to face my fears and deal with my reality. The night after surgery I had trouble sleeping so I continued to read “Psychology of the Hero Soul.” When I finished, it rejuvenated my outlook on life.
After reading this book I can now look in the mirror and see so much more of myself. I can surpass my physical “self” and look beyond to my mind, soul, and spirit. I have forgotten about my passions, ambitions, and the true person that I am. I have neglected what it is that I want to be remembered for in life and what I want to pass down to my children. I have learned that I need to enjoy the moment because life is passing by quickly. I also need to take the time to accomplish my goals in life and not say that I just don’t have time. I have to take actions to achieve my dreams.
I have learned that I need to maintain my soul and spirit by cleansing it from stresses, jealousies, and overall negative energy. Once the mind is cleansed it can be replenished with love, tranquility, passions, and dreams. With a positive outlook anything is possible.
I believe that “Psychology of the Hero Soul” is a well-written book that provided me with many examples of people whose extreme focus, determination and good virtues resulted in greatness. I was pleasantly surprised by the analysis of Perseus in the book. The Clash of the Titans has been one of my all time favorite movies as a child and Greek mythology has always fascinated me.
I have been so inspired to make myself a better person in every aspect of my life, as a mother, wife, co-worker, friend, daughter, and sister. During my recovery period this book has provided me with “food for thought,” tools to make my dreams a reality and enable me to keep a positive attitude during my healing process.” – Krupali Prevete
