Are you hiding something worth celebrating? We all have battles which we fight. Some are visible, and some are hidden. A Mental Illness is one of those struggles which many times is unseen and not shared. As a result, it is not often we receive the opportunity to celebrate the successes along the way or when the symptoms recess.
If you have walked alongside those impacted by mental illness or struggle with it yourself, you know how exciting it is when the illness fades into the background and life becomes brighter. It is a cause for celebration for everyone.
Today, you have an opportunity to meet Calleen who is celebrating her recession with mental illness. She has been brave in sharing her journey which in turn gives us all hope. It is an honor and privilege to rejoice alongside her, and I wanted you to have it too.
I love her words full of truth and wisdom for all of us.
“So I’m celebrating today by loving my life and loving not having the shadows of mental illness hanging over me. I’m happy and confident. Will it always be this way? Probably not, but for now, here and today, it is, and I thank God for that!” Calleen Petersen
Maybe your hidden struggle or success is something different. I would encourage you to share it with someone. We were never meant to go through life alone. We need to celebrate our successes no matter how small or large we think they are, or whether they will last forever.
You never know how your words may provide someone else the hope they desperately need. We need each other during the struggle and the celebration. Click To Tweet
