Happy New Year from Journey with Parkinson’s

“There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind.” C. S. Lewis

“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” Theodore Roosevelt

Happy New Year! My simple advice as we forge into 2021 is to forget 2020. Move forward, stay positive, be proactive, and always live with hope. Do not look back at what could have been, but look to the present moment to stabilize a thought, a plan, and strengthen the current outlook.

Do not look too far ahead. The day is enough to deal with; tomorrow will be waiting. Gather your strength and courage against your Parkinson’s; always remember, it is your life that you are leading, not this wicked disorder’s doctrine.

Stay active, think to move (exercise) every day, and do what you can. Get the heart rate elevated, and your brain will give you thanks. Get enough sleep each night, and your renewed brain will smile back with rejuvenated vigor. Remove that layer of stress in your life, and your entire body will celebrate.

Keep trying, do not give up, do not ever give up. Stay healthy, remain hopeful, and unify your effort to defend yourself against Parkinson’s.

“We spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done, cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives…not looking for flaws, but for potential.” Ellen Goodman
