WRITE THE ENDING TO YOUR LIFE STORY! · Parkinson's Resource Organization




By: Laura Meeks

A life coach and how she can help people with Parkinson’s or their Caregivers

Have you ever read a detective novel and pondered, “how will this story end?” Our lives can seem much like a detective novel, but I have learned that we are not the spectator of our lives. We are the creator of our life.

            I have had the pleasure of working with people in the Parkinson’s arena. I have worked with both the person with Parkinson’s and the caregiver. What I know is that it is so easy to get wrapped up in the circumstances that we forget to live.

            In my connections with people, I find many are trying to figure out how to make a positive move toward a life that will be better, but they haven’t defined what a better life is or what it might look like. So, what does “better” mean to you?  What you want may be different than what I want, and it may also be different than your family member may like

            An example may be found in this story:

            An older gentleman is walking in a park when he hears a tiny little voice from the ground. Looking under the leaves of the bush nearby, he spies a little frog!

            “Help me, kind sir!  I am a princess that was turned into a frog, and if you kiss me, I will become a princess and grant all your wishes! “

            The older gentleman picks up the frog and looks at it while pondering a kiss. In the end, the man puts the frog in his pocket and starts to walk off!

            “Kind sir, didn’t you hear me? Why did you put me in your pocket? Don’t you understand that I am a princess?   I can bring you happiness if you kiss me! “

            The old man stops and says:  “At my age, happiness is a talking frog!”

            I tell that story because knowing what you want your life to be is important, and sometimes others think they know what you should want.

            Only you know what you want to do before you transition into a new phase of your current life or into a new world.

            I don’t know what you want in life, but I have endured a number of major changes in my life. The most dramatic was my transition from a macho pilot guy into the beautiful female life coach I am today.

            What I know for sure is you have a gift, and I can help you find it. My skill is helping people understand how to find a vision and change their thinking. I help them find a path to a better life. It takes a little work, and I know that it helps so much to have a mentor guide you.

The good news is no matter where you are today; YOU get to decide how it will all end. You get to write the ending of your life story.

            So, what is on your bucket list? How do you want your story to end?

            Whether you are struggling with the challenge of helping your loved one or struggling with the challenges of having Parkinson’s:  you can have a fun and productive life.

            Life Coaches work with their clients to help them achieve goals, overcome obstacles, and make changes or shifts in their lives. The Coach works with the client as a partner, knowing that the client has the answers to create the changes they seek. Coaches do not counsel or analyze the past.

            A life coach is almost like a sculptor who can look at you and see the potential for you to achieve all that you desire. Through specific strategies and skills, the coach helps you define yourself and create the life you envision. Coaches help you focus, provide direction, challenge you, support you, motivate you, and celebrate with you. Life coaches help you create a plan, detail action steps and hold you accountable for following through. They use skills that include observing, listening deeply, asking empowering questions, challenging, and motivating. Coaches do not counsel or analyze the past. Life coaching is based on the principle that the client has the intrinsic ability to determine and achieve their goals. Everything is based on the present and what you want to achieve moving forward.

            Coaches work with all types of clients and meet with their clients

  • Coaching By Telephone
  • Face to Face Coaching
  • Videoconferencing
