Three things! #HAWMC

Day 29 (April 29) – Congratulations
We all know Health Activists are awesome. Share three things you love about yourself, things you’re great at, or just want to share. Don’t undercut or signpost!

1.  I have hope.  Sometimes I lose sight of it, but never for long.  I grew up in a family fueled by alcohol and abuse.  I've been heartbroken.  I had 2 miscarriages and made it though two high risk pregnancies.  I've traveled the bumpy road called marriage and am better for it!  I lost my father to cancer.  I was diagnosed with 2 rare diseases that will haunt me for the rest of my life.  But through it all, I am still smiling.  I still have faith in myself.  I got this!

2.  I try.  I used to always get so frustrated when I was younger.  When I couldn't do things or didn't think I could, I would give up or avoid them.  My dad always told me that I at least had to try.  It may have taken a lot longer than I had hoped but I am finally learning how to put myself out there.  Try new things and not give up at the first sign of defeat.  This writing challenge has been so much fun, but I get behind. This weekend none of my posts posted.  One I accidentally deleted.  But I am determined to follow though.  Unlike the last two years.  Even if I am missing a day somewhere!  Life is hard, but we owe it to ourselves to try and do our best and live it to the fullest.

3.  April is Donate Life Month.  And it was sorta taken over by this challenge.  I'm a little bummed that I didn't share more about it, but I have a few posts already scheduled for the upcoming weeks.  Every month should be donate life month anyways.  There is also a little video in the works.  I'm just trying to get it all together and then I will have to find the guts to share it.
