The Magic of Excellent: A Short Film

Today is the first ever International Epilepsy Day, created by The International Bureau for Epilepsy (IBE) and The International League Against Epilepsy (ILAE)(Going forward, the official International Epilepsy Day will be the second Monday of every February.)

Robert is participating in the awareness initiative of the Epilepsy Awareness Squad who is partnering with IBE this year. Robert posed for the photo included here for them and they will share his photo along with many others who have epilepsy.

I am also thrilled to share the video that Richard, Robert and I made about his story and for International Epilepsy Day!!  (For those who saw my November Epilepsy Awareness Month videos, don’t worry – this is short!).  J

Regular readers know that Robert has a generally positive attitude but can be cranky depending on his medications, if he’s under the weather or having a not-so-super Super Bowl game. In spite of all this, Robert will – without fail – describe his situation as “excellent.”  I have a hard time grasping this “everything is excellent” attitude but think Robert really does believe everything is excellent.

That is the “Magic of Excellent” and my inspiration for this video.

Thank you for watching and please share with the hashtag #epilepsyday if possible.

Wishing everyone a lifetime of excellent and magic.

Robert, this makes me ashamed of my bad attitude. From now on, am going to keep "excellent" as my new watchword. Love you to you, Robert, and Trish. <3
