Whatever you do, however you feel, make sure you are proud of yourself today and every day. You have gone through things that were meant to tear you down, but have only lifted you up higher and made you stronger. You have encouraged, inspired and motivated others around you to keep fighting and stay strong through their own journey. At times you may feel invisible or worthless, but you are far from that. You are making a difference in the world, whether you realize it or not, and have purpose beyond your pain that can never be replaced or dulled down. You shine bright even when you feel hope has passed you by. You fight hard even when you want to give up. Your perseverance alone is something to be proud of. Be proud of how you handle your situation; how you push past fear and do what needs to be done for the sake of your health and life. You are a courageous and empowering person and you need to take time to realize how incredible you truly are. Go ahead, pat yourself on the back, give yourself a round of applause, and celebrate yourself; you are an inspiration.
