What are you passionate about? Think about it.
So you are reading this and thinking “I have Parkinson’s, what is there to be passionate about?”
Well I have Parkinson’s also, but it’s not who I am. Parkinson’s is what I have to manage on a daily basis.
What I have to live for are the things in my life I am passionate about. I have to dig deep into myself to understand these passions.
For everyone with Parkinson’s today is a new day, find your passion in life. Believe that you can not that you can’t.
Life is precious and very short, be grateful for what you have. Write down today 5 things you are grateful for. Here are mine:
1. The sunrise this morning.
2. My ability to see beyond Parkinson’s Disease.
3. My journey.
4. The people in my life that support me; my trainer Eoin, the volunteers in Move4Parkinson’s, my community and my family.
5. Being alive.
What’s on your list?
