YOU can make a difference

I saw this quote and I love it....  

"People wonder why I give so many compliments out to strangers. I'm not being fake and I'm not looking for people to like me. But if I pass someone and I like something, I say it. "Love those shoes!" or "Great hair!" or "Wow your eyes are beautiful!"....why? Because life is hard and this world can be a shitty place, and people are mean. You never know how much those few words mean to someone, you never know what hell they may be going through; and when you put positivity out there into the universe YOU yourself become a happier person. It's hard to be nice and be miserable yourself. It'll reflect from the outside in. I'm telling you random compliment giving will change your life; and maybe someone else's, too." 

I really love this... It's so true. We have the ability to change someone's day for the better, so why not do it?! You will find that we rise by lifting others. Be kind. Give compliments. Smile. Love more. That is what the world needs more of, be the change you want to see in this world. Your kindness can have a ripple effect, it just takes one person.... Let that person be you!!

Love To Breathe Tokens

I can't believe it's been two years since I passed out my first Love to Breathe Token. I just updated my map and I am blown away. 

My #LoveToBreatheTokens are in over 42 countries and ALL 50 states... there are a lil over 6,000 in circulation right now. 

Love To Breathe® is the legacy I have created to leave behind "The goal isn't to live forever, but to create something that will" and that is exactly my hope and wish for Love To Breathe® and my Love To Breathe Tokens. These tokens mean the absolute world to me. 

This movement has been so amazing and so rewarding to watch unfold. I am in awe at how far they have spread over these last two years. Never in a million years did I think they would have the response that they have. My goal is that everyone can be touched in some way by these tokens, and that Love To Breathe® will soon be circulating throughout 100% of the whole world, not just 21% of it. 

I created these tokens to spread more love in the world that so desperately needs it, and at the same time raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis. The stories and the people I have met along this journey have been so rewarding and has filled my heart and soul with so much love. My heart smiles every time I get an email, a picture of one somewhere fun, or when I hear how one of these tokens has made such a difference to someone.... I am truly humbled and so very grateful. 

None of this would of been possible without all of you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has helped me spread love all over the world. Thank you for telling my story and for spreading the love and CF awareness through my tokens, it means so much to me. Keep sharing and spreading the love, together we can change the world for the better. Know that whatever you choose to do love will always follow it through!!

We All Have Fears...

"It's better to live one year as a tiger, than 100 years as a sheep"-Madonna  

Its easy to be a sheep when faced with fear. Fear is an unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat... CF is fear. 

I try to live my life as a tiger. This is not always easy, especially since you never know when CF will strike. Living with fear lurking over you can be daunting at times. However, I try not to let fear decide my fate.... If you can become fearless, your life can be limitless.

We all have fears, our fears help develop our courage... It might not feel like it but our fears make us stronger. The trick is learning how to rise up and be bigger than your fears and show them you are brave and strong. It's important to remember courage doesn't always have to roar. At the end of the day courage can be that quiet voice that says, 'it's ok we can try this again tomorrow.' The important thing is that you keep trying and you never give up. 

You have this one life... so keep living it. Make yourself proud by stepping out of your comfort zone and conquering your fears one day at a time. Breathe deep, and live your life like a tiger!
