A little sentimental this evening. On my FB memories it reminded me that a year ago I was flying to Los Angeles to attend the taping of the Dr. Phil Show with Ms. Kathy Bates. Even though I had never attended a studio taping before and had no idea what to expect, I put my fears aside to try do some good and help spread awareness on behalf of the Lymphatic Education & Research Network.
I was actually sick 😷 that day from a really bad dry cough. I know I’m not the best speaker, but I do try. To me, advocacy is not about being the best. It’s having the courage to face the scrutiny, criticism, publicly make mistakes, and still fight the good fight with a smile to wake up another day and do it all over again. It’s when you know down deep in your heart that somebody out there needs to hear that message and they need help.
We will keep slaying dragons come what may. Here’s to 2020!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽❤️
