Inspiration – Michael J Fox

Filed Under Gatitude Attitude | 3 comments


Michael J Fox, 47, father of 4 was diagnosed 18 years ago with Parkinson’s disease. One of the brightest actors now political activist is “Always looking Up.” (take a look in the Dipity Store at his book on Amazon)

Not typically being inspired by any celebrities; I found myself brought to “happy and proud” tears when watching MJF on Oprah and Regis and Kelly this morning. This man who could’ve easily given himself the biggest pity party, has turned his challenge around to not only keep himself looking on the bright side but helping 1000’s of others. 

Imagine if loosening the constraints on stem cell research could help those with Parkinsons or Alzheimers. *crossing fingers and everything cross-able*

When our day to day life seems to be a challenge or things don’t go the way we want, I am hoping that I reflect on today’s inspiration of Micheal and slap myself back into reality and know how blessed I am with all my foibles and problems!

I’m off to shop for the book!  Happy April 1st.

    You are right, Michael J. Fox IS inspiring.  He makes me forget about everyday troubles, which seem so paltry in comparison. 

    Oh, I featured you on my blog portfolio page here –  It has a page rank of 4, so that should also help get the ball rolling for you.  🙂
