Birthday Reflections – Life Lessons from My 27th Year

Birthday Reflections - Life Lessons from My 27th Year

Hello Lovelies:

I had the joy of celebrating my 28th birthday this past Wednesday! I spent some time last reflecting on all of the life lessons the past year has bestowed upon me.

5 days before my 27th birthday I received the unfortunate news that I had relapsed. I was devastated and terrified! But I was also determined to return to remission, accept that Graves Disease was a part of me and thrive in spite of my diagnoses. This past year was about Acceptance and Healing and I have a lot to celebrate as I look back. Today I am symptom free and in remission; thriving and full of joy!

It is a delight to celebrate another year of life. I’m so grateful for every day, all of the ups and downs and the person that I’ve had the pleasure of becoming.

Which is why I wanted to share the life lessons on self care, self love and living with an incurable illness that 27 provided. I think they can help you a lot too.
