Hope- 2019 Parkinson’s Awareness Month

The word is positivity: For the remainder of April, as part of Parkinson’s Awareness Month, the theme will revolve around words worth living or inspirational quotes. The goal is to offer you a quote that helps to reinforce your daily approach to life with Parkinson’s. Alternatively, use these quotes to bolster the resolve of your life-Coach/Care Partner. Always remember what Cassandra Clare said, “We live and breathe words.” Every life-step with Parkinson’s is a balancing act that is slowly evolving, subtly changing, but it is always present. May these quotes support your daily walk in the presence of Parkinson’s.

Life is better lived with positivity: You get to choose positive or negative in your approach to life. Although hiccups do occasionally occur, your life should be smoother following the positive path.“Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life with Parkinson’s requires positivity: You will encounter some difficult times with Parkinson’s. In the midst of that difficult-time, remind yourself of the positive parts to that minute, hour, or day; thus, trying to pull yourself back to the positive life path. “Look for something positive each day, even if some days you have to look a little harder.” From the recovery experts

From the Journey with Parkinson’s: “There will be moments when you’re having a difficult time that your mindset turns negative; however, I believe that’s when you need to be most positive in dealing with Parkinson’s. Our lives are different now than they were before Parkinson’s and using positivity will allow us to creatively handle many obstacles ahead.” Frank C. Church

“I’m going to be totally honest with you. Dealing with a diagnosis of Parkinson’s is not easy and there is no one, single technique that will ease the pain and no magic pill that will miraculously enable you to cope with it. However … I sincerely hope that you are able to come to terms with the diagnosis and perhaps even come to view it as a positive life-changing experience.” John Baxter
