Acceptance

Acceptance doesn’t mean resignation; it means understanding that something is what it is and that there’s got to be a way through it.

Michael J Fox

I read about people ‘battling’ and ‘fighting’ Parkinson’s and I understand and respect the sentiment. The terminology alone, however, exhausts me. I don’t wish to spend my days battling and fighting. I’ve chosen not to go to war with Parkinson’s and not to do battle with it, instead I’m learning to accept its presence, listen to its demands and to navigate my way through the challenges it presents, one step at a time.
