This post is based on the Ted Talk given by Lizzie Velasquez :
Lizzie is such an inspirational young woman, who, despite her medical condition, has proved, time and again, that what matters is not how you look, but how you think and feel about yourself.
She said this in her speech, which I absolutely love :
All of us have haters, those around us who wait for us to fall, and laugh at us instead of helping us get back up.
All you need to do is ignore them. Try your level best not to let their negativity affect you, because in the end all that matters is your will to persevere and succeed despite all that is happening around you.
How do you define yourself?
I define myself as a compassionate, over-enthusiastic woman, with the heart of a child. An introvert and an overthinker who loves to analyse everything. A woman on a mission to help and to heal the world, currently one blog post at a time.
All of us have been put on this earth with a mission. Mine is to serve, to help, to heal.
Have you thought about yours?
Thank you for reading! Stay blessed!
