Fighting Parkinson’s, and being cured eight years

For me, today is a blessed day filled with gratitude, acceptance, and surrender. It is the day I woke up eight years ago, Parkinson’s gone, life back in balance…cured.

In my recovery, I learned a lot about gratitude, acceptance, and surrender. I became completely grateful for my life, even one that temporarily had a body with Parkinson’s symptoms. My soul was untouched by Parkinson’s, and I was grateful that my soul was in a human body. I learned to accept whatever was happening as necessary in my life and my recovery. And, I learned to surrender that nobody owed me an explanation as to why the things were happening in my life…”Okay. Apparently this is supposed to be happening or it would not be happening.”

Eight years after my final surrender and awakening, cured of Parkinson’s, I live my life following these lessons.

This is why Parkinson’s does not come back after one is cured doing the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery®. Once you learn the lessons and have your recovery, your attitude and behavior reflect the “lessons learned” and you never have to learn them again. Faith, attitude, action, progress, recovery!!! It is life back in balance.

Full acceptance and surrender of what is going on in life looks like this for me: “Okay! Apparently, I was supposed to get Parkinson’s, so I could cure myself, so I could find my purpose, so I could serve all of you.” I am grateful to all of you for your hard work and dedication in taking the path less traveled and knowing you can recover from Parkinson’s. I am grateful to all of you for helping me fulfill my purpose.

I am grateful for my children, Steven, Genevieve, and Victoria. You have grown into loving, caring, beautiful adults. You make Mom and me proud everyday. I couldn’t have done it without your love and support in helping me around the house and not giving up on your dad. Thank you. I love you.

And, Sally, the love of my life…what a journey it has been and continues to be. Thank you for holding me for 30 years and never letting go. Thank you for holding me extra hard when I had Parkinson’s. Thank you for holding my hand as we took our most recent leap of faith, leaping 3,000 miles from Florida to Oregon two years ago. How wonderful it has been since we moved. I love you!

Yes, today I am eight years cured of Parkinson’s. You can do this too!

You are worth it!!!

All my best,

    I am happy for your freedom, you have used it very well. What stands out for me when we have had some long talks together is an old fashioned phrase, “this is a man of faith”. It’s a palpable force in/of you, but I have never felt it to be blind, rigid or coercive. Thank you for being yourself so happily.
