No Excuses, No Limits: My Personal Journey Towards Health & Happiness | The Beginning

Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis aka MS in May 2009, Patrice Majors the co-owner and founder of FOCUS on the 615, shares her personal story about living with this disease as she tells you where she’s been, how she got here, and where she’s headed.  As a result of numerous problems with MS and a recent health scare with her heart, she embarks on a journey to return to the best shape she can get into.  She will share with you what she learns about good health along the way as she trains and prepares to enter the MS Jack and Back bike event here in Nashville in the fall where she has set her goal to complete the 120 mile bike ride from Nashville to Lynchburg, TN (Jack Daniels Distillery) and back in a 2-day ride.  Come share the experience with her as she trains for this event and tells you her story of how she got here in the first place seeking to raise awareness for MS along the way.

 

People often ask me how I got to be an entertainment journalist and doing what I do. So, I’m going to try to explain all of this and take you on a very personal journey with me that I share through entries just like this as I work to regain my health and finding my happy place along the way. I’m hoping that by sharing my personal story on here, that maybe I will inspire or help someone just like me that might be going through a difficult time in their life and struggling with something. Do you know anybody like that? Oh, yeah, that’s probably you, right? Because the fact of the matter is that ALL of us have either struggled or are struggling with SOMETHING in their life. I’m not unique by any means. I’m just a person trying to live my life the best way that I know how. Sometimes I get things right, sometimes I fail miserably. At the end of my life, though, I want to be able to look back and say that I made a difference somehow. I just want to be happy and live a long fruitful like filled with lots of love, laughter, and good times. So, if you’ll indulge me, I’m going to attempt to share my very personal story of how I got to be in this place in my life running an online entertainment magazine called FOCUS on the 615 where I interview artists, attend special events, and award show. I’ve got a story to tell that I think is worth sharing and I hope you’ll be interested in hearing about it.  Here goes!
