“Don’t Count the Days, Make the Days Count.”

 Post 27

When I first heard the saying, I didn’t know who coined it, but it rang true for my condition. I was delighted to find that the quote is attributable to Mohammad Ali.  At one time he was the most famous man alive.  Now, he is famous in the Parkinson’s community as well. He is one of us.
In earlier posts I’ve spoke about my denial of the downward spiral that lies ahead. Today, my symptoms are quite tolerable.  I still function with the help of medication.  What good is it for me to look forward? My life is good today. I must use my days well, both for myself and those around me. 
“Don’t count the days, make the days count.” I think I’ll make this my personal mantra.
