Words to live by

“Be who you were created to be, and you will set the world on fire.” – St. Catherine of Sienna


If you know me well enough, you know I’m a sucker for a great quote or poem. I was looking through my Twitter feed, and found that one. It got me thinking again.

As life goes on, I’m finding that saying to be oh so accurate, as with every other one you’ll also see everywhere on my Facebook timeline. šŸ˜‚

When I was diagnosed with TS, I had absolutely no idea it would have this much of an impact. I didn’t know that so many years later I’d be out there bringing awareness and sharing my story. So, as I get closer to finishing my college career, I’ve been asked more about what exactly it is I want to do. I only recently decided on the career in genetic counseling. It can and will take a lot of time and effort, but my hope is that I’ll eventually get there.


It’s been evident since I was born that I’m not one to give up. I don’t like to be told I won’t necessarily get a chance at something in life. I figure if I’ve made it through so much already, what’s one more challenge?

To be honest, and this might be because I’ve been doing this for so long, I don’t see myself doing anything else. I feel as though I have this all in my blood! I was born the way that I was so I could help people. I always say that my page and blog is like having a dream job; one that I’m not paid for. I want to be able to expand on it all, and someday be able to actually work in a field that’s held such a special place in my life for many years now. Don’t ignore it when you find yourself involved in something that you love. Just go with it. Work towards that goal or dream and do what you can to make a difference. ā¤
