Making an impact is different from making an impression. You don't have to be a celebrity or a CEO or a marathon winner to make an impact or to make a difference. I am a person with Parkinson's Disease, diagnosed 11 years ago at age 42. Four years later, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had just started my own business, I had two children in elementary school, and I was discovering I wasn't the perfect woman success story. I didn't set out to be inspiring, but the more I shared my authentic self with others, the more encouraged I became that by showing the chinks in my armor, I could make a difference in other people's lives. Isn't that what we're put on earth to do?
