"Stay strong," those are the two simple words that I would remind myself a year from now to help me face my battles. One of the many definitions of strength and my favorite is: the quality that allows someone to deal with problems in a determined and effective way. There are so many people in our world today who are fighters, faced with challenges, some even facing the unbearable odds we can’t even relate to. I wonder how they survive every day and make the most out of their lives. Well that answer is strength. Everyone needs their strength to accomplish dreams and achieve the unimaginable.
I was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at the age of 7. At the time I never understood what my diagnosis meant for my future. To be honest I still don’t, but what I have learned and will continue to carry with me is to always believe in myself. I will continue to fight for my dreams so I can live my life to the fullest. In order for me to overcome my obstacles, I have to stay strong. CF strong.
My artwork is a painting I recently created that depicts the strength required to battle Cystic Fibrosis. I outlined the flexed arm with words that describe a fighter. Some of those words being: hope, dream, faith, determination and courage. To me, no matter what you are faced with in life or the battles you must overcome, strength is key to conquering.
