Yesterday while I was at the gym I talked to a woman who I see there regulary. Through our conversation it came out that she is 47 years old. I had always thought that she was no more than 40. I couldn't help but ask, "What's your secret?" She simply responded, "Be happy and have a positive attitued." I don't think I could have said it better myself.
Keeping a positive attitude is key to having a healthy, happy life, so I have a bit of a dare for you. Can you go one day without thinking or saying something negative? In todays world it's not easy, but I suggest that we both give it a try. So many people could benefit from this: our kids, spouse, co-workers and people driving down the road next to us. We can do it and we need to do it!
Good luck and think positive!
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
