“TODAY I STILL REJOICE! Happy anniversary to me!”Read it below:
Today makes it the 7th year of my survival. I shall rejoice during the month of November because this is the month that I had my right leg amputated.
When God decided that I can be a better person than what I thought I might have been.November – the month when I stepped into the gravel road,
it was never easy; the pain, tears, heartbreak, torture, depression and all the negative vices you canimagine.After accepting myself for who I am, today I know happiness, love, care, faith, hope, strength and vision with a purpose to be alive because I never gave up. I was not cursed but God chose me to be His living testimony.
He made it a point that I am different from majority. Look at me 7 years later, I am a queen and I have been positive.I am 20 years old, I am a confident young woman.
I believe that disability is attitude. I believe I’m no difference from any woman and I cannot be defined lessthan that. Basically, I choose not to be defined by my challenges.
So in my 7 years as an amputee, I have learned to have self-love, my clutches are my best accessories.
I always have my beautiful smile as my make-up.
It defines me before the world. It is the voice to my silence.
I see so much faith in myself and it scares me.
To think of where I have been and where I am going makes me emotional.
I will change the world tomorrow!I am happy with or without a limb!!FOOTNOTE:
(1) That something wonderful is going to happen even with all the ups and downs.
(2) Never take a day for granted.
(3) Cherish the little things and hug the ones you love.
(4) No pain, no gain.
(5) I believe we are all bound to face challenges and when they come, we have got to be strong.
