To quote the absolute legend which is Albus Dumbledore
« ⚡️ 🦉 🧙♂️ It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. «
And on this #RareDiseaseDay and through out this whole month .
I’ve taken time to DEEPLY admire the courage it takes to survive the unimaginable ❤️🦓.
Rare disease takes you , and throws you in the deep end of a pool of when you never thought you needed to learn how to swim .
Enlist you in a war you never signed up for .
Once it comes into your life ,
It changes EVERYTHING .
And I use to think continuing to go forward , wasn’t a sign of bravery .. but a means of survival.
Until I had the realization that .
Some people don’t choose to go forward .
Some get thrown in the deep end and let the water consume them .
But if you are still fighting .
If you are trying your hardest to stay .
If you are paddling and paddling in the deepest and darkest of waters
, even when it feels like you aren’t moving anywhere .
That is an act of bravery .
Continuing .. continuing despite everything against you . Fighting to survive against the impossible ans unavoidable may be one of the bravest things you can do .
Never forget just how magic 🪄 you are ❤️🦉.
Btw how AMAZING is this shirt I had a friend custom make for me ?! 😍 I’m OBSESSED.
