Navigating the Pace of Progress: Embracing the Journey When Change Moves at a Snail’s Pace


Life is a work in progress.

Jeff Rich

For me, Thanksgiving is not just a holiday but a cherished tradition, a time when the hustle and bustle of daily life takes a backseat to embrace the simple yet profound act of giving thanks. Everything about it, from the rich aroma of a roasting turkey and my favorite, the stuffing. To the laughter and joy of family and friends. All the way down to the traditional football games. Thanksgiving holds a special place in my heart! A reminder to pause, appreciate, and connect with the blessings that weave the tapestry of our lives.

As the Thanksgiving feast concludes, the final slices of pumpkin pie are enjoyed, and the last echoes of gratitude linger in the air. I start to feel a subtle transition unfolding. Marking the beginning of the enchanting holiday season. And with the holiday season, we close in on the end of the year. 

That, among many things, is what is swirling in my head today. My hopes and my fears for where this journey is taking me. 

I was recently added to Ataxia Community Links on the National Ataxia Foundation’s (NAF) website and it’s a nice accomplishment. People are joining us across the different social media platforms and on our homepage. All of this is great, and I am very happy with the positive direction, but I have a LONG way to go! Which is the main idea of this article, progress. 

 If you haven’t already, please go to and sign up for our updates. And while you are there, feel free to drop me a line using the CONTACT form. If you just want to say “hello” or tell me your story, I would love to hear it. And I always welcome new ideas or subjects we should be covering.  Everyone’s voice is important as we raise awareness!

In addition, I am also working on a crowdfunding campaign. There are some improvements and additions I want to make to this platform and crowdfunding seems to be a great option. More information to follow as I get closer to launching that campaign.
