At times, life comes to a stop to teach us valuable lessons that we would not have otherwise understood. Aanandha Sharurajah writes in Stroke of Gratitude that a stroke struck him on July 3, 2012, which caused paralysis in his right side and shut down his body. He was diagnosed with a hemorrhagic stroke. Luckily, he survives but has to undergo various traditional and contemporary therapies to regain his speech, balance, and flexibility. He progressively gets better and even finds a new purpose in life. He decides to give back to society by helping the less fortunate. He also becomes a stroke advocate for the Singapore National Stroke Association to empower and help people manage their stroke after the event.
Aanandha Sharurajah shares lessons on how to be grateful for what you have, spend more time with loved ones, love them deeply, forgive more quickly, and that life is very fragile; anything can happen at any time. Readers will learn from these insights and implement the lessons to enable them to live a more purposeful life. Aanandha's journey has been challenging; despite that, he acquires the strength to fight back and live a happier and more lovely life. His story, therefore, empowers those who feel like giving up to believe in themselves and push on. Aanandha's cause of stroke was chronic stress, and he shares ways to curb it after thorough research. Stroke victims will appreciate Stroke of Gratitude since it will empower them to push on in their journey and come out strong, courageous, and happy on the other side.
