This month, I have been making a big push with my November to Remember, No Excuses November, 30-day challenge 2013 to do a modified version of the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® for 30 days. As we enter the final day, I have been happy to hear back from people on how they are doing. Many people have commented to me or emailed me that when they saw family and friends who they had not seen for a while during the Thanksgiving holiday over the course of this last week, that the people told them how much better they looked or how much healthier they looked. This is very good! So, you wonder, what’s next?
To read “what’s next,” you will have to come back to this website and blog tomorrow. You see, there is still one more day to finish the challenge. You made a commitment to do the scaled-down version of the Recipe for 30 days, and today is day 30. What’s next is eons away. What’s next is some future that does not exist in the present. What’s next is your Adrenaline-mode mind fearfully pulling you away from “what now,” in this moment, as if what you are doing now lacks significance. What you need to realize is that what is important is “what you are doing NOW!”
If what you are doing now is the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®, then what you are doing now is curing yourself from Parkinson’s Disease. If what you are doing now is still thinking about whether or not to accept the 30-day challenge issued 29 days ago, then what you are doing now is not curing yourself from Parkinson’s Disease. Instead, what you are doing now is engaging in the same Adrenaline-mode mind thinking and over-thinking that assisted your Parkinson’s symptoms come to the surface as diagnosable symptoms in the first place…ultimately, this leads you to getting worse.
On any given day, any given person can wake up and say, “Today will be different. Today will be the day I decide to do something different.” It is a choice.
Why not be that given person? Why not make that day today? Why not say, “I accept the challenge. Today, I choose to accept the challenge to do the scaled-down version of the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® for one day. That right, one day! I am making a commitment to myself to do the scaled-down version of the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® today!!!”
And, what about tomorrow? We’ll talk about that tomorrow. See you then.
You are worth it!!!
All my best,
