Change Used to Make Me Anxious...My Illnesses Changed That


Change used to make me anxious.

At a young age, I was forced to confront the thought, “I may actually die”. My illnesses were bad, so dying was a real possibility. Did I want to spend whatever days I (potentially) had left worrying if I was going to die or not? No...I wanted to spend ALL of those days enjoying the life that I lived NOW.

I’m obviously still alive and overcame this part of my life...but that way of thinking has continued ever since.

Rather than focusing on the unknown, I focus on what I do know...myself. I have the power to find happiness in each day. I have the power to see that I don’t have to be anxious about change. That decision is up to me.

My story is unique, but I am not special. You don’t have to be told, “you have 3 months to live”, to be optimistic in life. If you are living, I wholeheartedly know that you too have the power to love yourself and endure whatever change life presents you too. ❤️ ⠀
