My name is Joe, I’m 27 years old and this is my blog.
I’m grew up in Westfield, NJ but now live in Philadelphia, PA with my wife Michaela. We’re both Doctors of Physical Therapy, but that title doesn’t and won’t define who I am. I’m Joe Rinaldi the human being and child of God. I’m here to serve, love, encourage, inspire and leave the world a better place than I found it in everything that I do. I have a desire to make a true and positive impact on the people around me and that’s the contagious attitude that I want to spread. We’re all in this together and I want everyone to know and feel that when they interact with me or any of my content. To put things in perspective and give more context, I need to tell you one more thing.
I’m grateful to be going blind.
I was born with a genetic eye condition (Best Disease) that has been causing me to lose eyesight since I was a child I don’t know what the future will bring and I’m not sure if I’ll be able to see when I wake up tomorrow, but I’m not worried about that. I’m concerned about doing my best in this moment because it’s all that I have. I choose to view my circumstances as a strength (read that again) and that is what I want every single person in this world to feel. I know that everyone struggles with something and I believe that everything happens for a reason. What I’ve lost in sight, I’ve gained in vision.
I understand that life is so much bigger than me.
I was put on this earth to make a difference in the lives of others and that’s what I’m all about. I strive to radiate positive energy with the hope that it’ll reach out and touch those around me. I want to improve the life of every single person who crosses my path and be a light in someone’s darkness. I want to use my struggles, adversities and stories to lead others and show that with consistent effort, positive perspective and some faith that anything can be done.
I believe in you and you should believe in you too.
I am always open to feedback, suggestions, and constructive criticism, so please don’t hesitate to reach out! If you want to get in touch, please feel free to contact me via Instagram or through the contact page, I would love to hear from you!
Thank you for reading and I hope you can find value in what I have to share.
Joe Rinaldi, PT, DPT
