The Serenity Prayer – a philosophy to live by…

I have been watching a series on Netflix and this prayer has been recited several times. Though brought up a Catholic, I consider myself not a religious person these days. However, this prayer, this philosophy if you will, speaks to me.

I do feel at the moment in my life a form of acceptance of this condition and it gives me a certain amount of peace. I don’t feel the need to fight against it so much as to acknowledge that I cannot change the presence of Parkinson’s in my life. But I must have the courage to change what I can, to change how I live my life so that I have the kind of life I can cherish, despite the unwanted and unchangeable presence of Parkinson’s in my life.

So, I will recognise my power to change things in my life that I can to have that better life. To accept things that cannot be changed. In that way, I will find the serenity to move forward in my life with positivity, knowing that I have done all that I can to have the most positive life experience with no regrets. A life lived well and wisely. A life worth living.

I work in health and have been with the same supportive team for over 7 years. They are all aware of my diagnosis and this helps tremendously especially while I get used to the idea of my diagnosis. My parents both had Parkinsons, so I guess my odds were higher than most.
