"Never let anyone have power over your worth ... never let anyone control your voice."
It's humbling to know that one voice in a small town in Wilmington, NC, can reach so many people around the world and have a global effect. It creates a ripple effect of positive energy, education and enlightenment. I'm really humbled to know that people are actually receptive to the message I'm trying to convey and people are listening, so that makes me feel like this blog is actually worth it.
I can honestly say that since my video that I posted in January, I've really come out of my shell and noticed that people aren't nearly as bad as what I thought they were. People don't always react the worst way possible. People are actually human beings.
Sometimes all it takes is hearing a story that you connect with to realize that everything is going to be OK. I want to make sure everyone knows that you are not defined by your disease and that there's so much more, and that you are still you.
