It has been a challenge!

My Journey with Parkinson’s … A Natural Approach: Post 210 … Transforming dread!

pancakes1Recently, I realized that I’m beginning to dread certain tasks [more than just getting dressed for my morning walk which I wrote about in my last post]. Ironing, shaving, washing dishes, shampooing my hair, shopping and preparing dinner, all leave me feeling a certain level of trepidation.

My Journey with Parkinson’s … A Natural Approach: Post 115 … Our spiritual journey always supersedes the physical!

labyrinth1I love epiphanies! Insights! They’re like opening presents under the Christmas tree! Makes you feel like a wide-eyed kid!

I had an epiphany this morning. Our spiritual journeys always supersede the physical. The impetus for this epiphany, was my  ponderance over why I experienced an improvement in my symptoms this past summer and a worsening this fall. I kind of knew the answer [that I had more to learn], but wasn’t 100% certain. And so I walked up to the labyrinth near my house with this question in mind.
