Be your own kind of Beautiful
If everyone gets one miracle in life, I think mine is being sick. No, I’m not “happy” or “thankful” I that I am sick, but because of having a rare disease and living with chronic illness I know how strong I am. I have realized my passion for social justice and advocacy. I’ve realized how to appreciate the little things like being able to stand up or breathe, even getting older. I can laugh in basically any situation now. I’ve learned not to let something as uncontrollable as pain get in the way of living.
My mom has always said “it takes a village to raise a daughter”, and I have found that it “takes a village of sick chicks” to create change and to help shine a light even in the darkest of times.
