#HAWMC - 5 Challenges, 5 Victories
Your Top 5. For today’s post we’re making a list of our top 5’s – whether they be for your health condition or your Health Activism. Take some time to think about your experiences and develop your top 5’s – the 5 most difficult parts of your health focus and the 5 small victories that keep you going.
Top Five Challenges
These are my top five challenges, not because they're difficult per se. They're my challenges because they matter most to me. These are the things I want to get right. These are the challenges I've chose for myself, because I like these challenges.
5. Turning my frustration into something constructive.
4. Seeing the bright side of a terrible situation.
3. Overcoming stigmas and prejudices.
2. Empowering others.
1. Finding. The. Words.
Top Five Victories
All of my victories have been things that I've been able to find as a result of my Health Activism. It's only been a short amount of time, and I've already been blessed with so much! It's enough to make my head spin!
5. Finding my calling.
4. Great doctors who were able to (finally!) manage my symptoms.
3. A cure for my disease.
2. My Unicorn Sister.
If you're reading this, you are a victory for me. What I do here is only good if it's able to help someone else. Yet, right now, the only way for me to do that is by you finding me. This is a victory that I write for---finding the message that helps you. But I have to rely on the generosity of the universe for our paths to cross, for me to find the words, for me to choose the topic that helps you. Somehow, all those things come to pass, and here you are! That's an awesome, and my favorite, victory.
