“Always be kind, especially in times when it seems like everyone is giving up on each other. Love harder.” -Madeline Brewster
*Disclaimer, this is NOT a pity post. I am NOT looking for sympathy. Kind words would/will be excepted though*
Hi my Phat friends. I will not be doing my regular introduction here but felt guilty not doing at least a hello.
This post has not been written to get pity. I said in the beginning (and have continued to say) that I will be honest with you guys.
Here’s what happened
One of my cousins had a baby 4 months ago. This little guy was a fighter right from the start, but he was very sick. He was transferred to a different province for care but was told once there his case was too advanced. So he was sent to a hospital in a 3rd province. He fought hard but sadly lost the battle. He is no longer in pain and can for the first time in his life rest easy and peaceful.
I’m sharing this story with you because life is short. I realize my blog is about body positivity, but it is so much more than that. Its about love and kindness and respect. It’s about being there for eachother and knowing that you are never alone.
I want you guys to know that I am here for you. Life is short, but it is not to short to be kind to others and show others around you whether they be friends, family or strangers love.
Showing love can be as simple as saying hello to a stranger. Just that simple gesture can change a person’s life.
*My apologizes for the out of character post, but like I said, I want to be honest with you guys*
The sun will rise again and it will be a new and better day
