Episode #74: Michael O’Brien

Michael had been checking the boxes of life.  He went to college, got a good job and got married, and had two beautiful children.  But then his script got a rewrite.  On July, 11, 2001, Michael was hit head-on by an SUV traveling at 40 mph while he was out training on his bike.  That became his Last Bad Day. 

Miraculously, he survived, but the long road to recovery wasn’t without difficulties.  He was told “that all events in our lives are neutral until we label them.”  Maybe his accident didn’t happen to him, but for him.  Not long after, he began to change his perspective and mindset, started a daily mindfulness practice called Pause Breathe Reflect, and changed his life.
