“A woman who continues to shatter the stigma of something that tries it’s damnedest to hold you back but will never succeed.”

I ran across these words today. Words that a precious client and fellow boss lady who has a chronic illness said about me during an interview I did for her podcast a couple of years ago.

And after the challenges I’ve had the past few weeks with my health, I needed that reminder. So thank you Universe for the love note that this will never win and year after year I continue to thrive no matter how difficult my daily condition may be.

I still dream of a time when I can go more than a day or two without feeling sick but looking back at this journey, I have to give a lot of credit to how much I’ve been able to overcome and “fix” in the process. Life now may still involve a lot of unfair things to deal with within my body most days, but it is WAY better than it used to be and for that I’m grateful.

–I AM in fact a woman who continues to shatter the stigma of something that tries it’s damnedest to hold me back.

So to those of you who may have needed that reminder too: here it is.

You’re thriving, even though it may not feel like it right now. If you’re still moving forward and not letting it win, you’re thriving. Acknowledge that. You deserve it. You’re incredible and I know you’re exhausted… rest when you need to (no seriously, rest.) And then tomorrow, keep going.

You got this.
