I decided to do a quote this week instead of a photo…

Everything will work out. Things will get better. You are important. You are worthy of great things. You are loveable. The time is now. This too shall pass. You can be who you really are. The best is yet to come. You are strong. You can do this.

-Doe Zantamata

I was roaming through Pinterest and found this quote, it has such a powerful meaning. Many of us tell ourselves some ugly things, that most of the time we end up believing.We let our past dictate our future, our pain define who we are. We find it so difficult to find ourselves because we are buried under a mask with many layers.

-Chronic illness sufferers have to go through life in pain all day long and still find the strength to smile and show love to the people around them.

-Women/Young girls have to make them self-pretty and good  enough for the other girls/women  so that they can fit in with the crowd.

-Men/Young men have to show off how much of a man they can be in order to be identified as a real man.

My point is it seems like everyone has to prove something to someone just to fit in and be noticed. Society has a meaning of what you should be and what you shouldn’t, causing the real you to hide and never show itself. The real you wants to show but society says no. It’s time to stomp on the opinions of others and realize you are your own person. Society doesn’t define you, your illness doesn’t define you, even the people closest to you. You are your own being let it shine for the world to see no matter what society says peel back the layer of masks and be yourself. There is no one else made just like you!

Have a blessed Tuesday 💜

I am a Christian Young Lady, who happens to deal with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia. I want to make one thing clear I no longer take my meds but, my body is not healed from this illness but in remission with the Grace of God. My mind is healed and I don't have the same thinking toward my illness. I believe I, can be in remission for how long as I want if I take care of my body. I want to help spread Gods goodness and to also help ease chronic illness pain by fueling your body with healthy foods and good exercise. Everyone has their own pace with chronic illness, but I am here for you to support you with the help of God.

  1. – Strong words: “The real you wants to show but society says no”. I like this phrase, this is so true. People are afraid to show who they are and afraid of expressing the reality of what lives in their hearts and minds. I would be nice if all of us could be open about who we are with out the fear of feeling rejected or neglected.
