Having a disability has taught me how to be strong and persevere because it has thrown me a lot of challenging times and challenges on a daily basis that I needed and need to conquer in order to live my life. It has taught me how to be grateful for everything that I have. It has taught me to accept differences. It has taught me how to have confidence. It has taught me how to discover the world in new ways. It has taught me how to explore different ways of doing things. But most importantly it has taught me that it is ok to be different and to be who you were born to be.
I just want to be able to show the world and people that being yourself is ok and to ignore the people or things that are trying to stop you from doing that. Even if what I have to say makes a difference in just one person's life I will be happy to know they are embracing themselves and are proud of who they are!
I understand it can be a hard process and a long journey to achieving that sometimes. I went through a time where I didn't want to be myself and accept my disability too. But coming through that has been the most important thing in the world for my happiness and life. You don't have to go through that alone either because there will always be people in your life that will love you and accept you for who you are and will help you to fully embrace that even if you have to go out and look for them!
If you take anything away from my blogs I want it to be that you shouldn't be afraid to be who you are or be afraid to be different. Live your life being you because this is what life has given you and differences are what makes the world go around.
Be proud. Be confident. Be happy
