I have recently decided to take at least one positive thing out of each day. I am going to try and do something new each day and to make memories from my present day to day activities. I will try to push myself to do different things each day, including exercise.
My memories will include small but significant things that have occurred each day. One example, is that today my 3 year old grandaughter asked me for a cuddle and said I love you Nanna. Today has not been a particularly good day, my tremor has not been well controlled, but I have spent the day with my husband and two grandaughters - am I lucky or what?
It is the small things, put together that make memories and I intend to take each day as it comes, both good and bad, while I can. Even if it is only taking the dogs for a walk in the rain, food shopping or daily chores I will do what I can when I can. I want people to remember me for myself, and not as a person with Parkinsons.
Come on life, throw what you like at me - I am ready, I hope. Roll on tomorrow.
