I saw this video yesterday courtesy of a Facebook friend. To be honest, I almost skipped it over completely but something made me stop, scroll back up and click on the link. What a great decision that was.
Lizzie Velasquez is very inspiring and true to her life goals, a wonderful motivational speaker.
Lizzie was handed a life full of challenges and obstacles but she hasn’t let it get her down; instead, she rose to the challenge and is taking control of her life instead of letting it take control of her.
This year is a chance to set new goals and make things happen. Whenever you’re feeling stressed, overwhelmed or beaten down think of Lizzie, watch this speech and realize what she did, you’re only as strong as you make yourself to be and the future is what you choose to make it.
Remember, “Brave starts here.”
