I believe that illness is not a punishment, but rather, an opportunity-
It is an awakening. A time to learn who we are. A time to see our own strength. A time to explore who we were meant to be.
I believe that sometimes we have to be knocked off our feet, to be lead to our true destiny.
I believe that one second, one day, one month, one year-or ten, does not define who we are. At the end of our lives, people won’t remember what we were physically able to do, but how we made them feel.
I believe that true strength is not being strong every moment. I believe true strength is knowing it’s ok to let go.
I believe that true strength is not being strong every moment, but maintaining hope through years of struggle, and searching for answers when you’re told there are none.
And I believe in you. You, out there reading this right now. Your eyes are open, you are reading these words, and though it may hurt right now, you are alive. It is not over yet. You will be standing there with me when we find an answer for all of this. Do not give up now.
I'm not giving up on you. The doctors may have given up on you, your friends may have, your family..but I am not giving up. You don't need to believe there will be a cure. You don't need to believe in any particular God, or Spirit, or doctor, or medicine.
All you need to believe in is you. Belong to the religion of "you", the medicine of "you", the good in you.
that one day, this all won't just be a "belief", but a reality.
