Everything has beauty, not everyone sees it
Lizzie Velasquez is a truly inspiring person.
Motivational speaker, optimist and extremely funny to boot, Lizzie has had a tough life dealing with a rare condition which means she is unable to gain weight.
In the video below which gives you an introduction to Lizzie and how she approaches life, she questions how you define yourself. I know for me at least that’s an extremely poignant question- right up there with “why are we here” and so forth.
Lizzie’s message is that you’re in control and you can always choose.
She could choose to let her appearance and her illness define her- but instead she’s chosen her success and her achievements to be what defines her in life.
Now that is truly inspirational.
