Be proud of yourself

Flicking through Facebook Reels and I found this clip. This kid is amazing and I totally agree with what he says.

This spoke to me and I wanted to share it with you all. All too often in this journey we might be tempted to focus on the things that are too hard. The things that challenge us. Perhaps we focus too much on what others think of us, rather than just being who we are and being true to ourselves. We have challenges in life that can make life incredibly difficult. Even small things may become a challenge and these things can consume you. It may seem like the odds are against you sometimes, that you can’t see the positive things in life that you still have.

But despite that, we still get up in the morning and we carry on. We live, we contribute, we achieve. Who said life was going to be easy? If I have learned anything in life, is that anything worth having you have to work for. That the harder you have to try, the more you appreciate the achievement at the end. If life was easy, with no challenge – while we might enjoy it for a while – it would soon lack interest and value for me.

So, be proud of yourself. Be proud of all you have done in life. Of all you continue to do and all you will do in the future despite this Parkinson’s thing’s intrusion into it. Every day, in every way, we fight the fight against the foe that is Parkinson’s. Stand tall, stand proud and take pride in the fact that you are still here, you still have value and don’t allow Parkinson’s to take that pride away from you.

You are here and you are fighting against this thing every day and with every breath you take. So, be proud, be loud and proud, be the amazing person that is you, because there is no-one else like you. You are special and perhaps sometimes you need to remind yourself of this.

Kia Kaha – be strong – be proud.

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.
