Choosing hope on Motivation Monday

Hope is a precious tool. It can drive us through the most difficult of times. Hope rejuvenates our drive. Without hope, we may drift and forget our direction toward the path that we had set out. On occasion, we all need a nudge to get back to where we should be going. #MotivationMonday #ParkinsonsDisease #ParkinsonsAwareness

Walking can strengthen, restore, improve balance, help with coordination, and force your body to connect with your thoughts.
