We all know Health Activists are awesome. Share three things you love about yourself, things you’re great at, or just want to share. Don’t undercut or signpost!
This is a hard post for me to write. I don’t like to praise myself and tote my achievements. I am a quiet person and keep a lot to myself. But for this, I will try to open up a little more and bring you more into my world.
1. One thing I am great at…or I like to think I am…is cooking. I took culinary arts in college and have a degree in cooking as well as management. I may not be the best but I think I can handle my own in a kitchen. Sometimes I have trouble thinking of dishes to make, but I can definitely take a recipe and make it my own.
2. One thing I love about myself is how I have been able to open up so much. Growing up I kept a lot of things to myself. I was a very closed off person. No one really knew what was going on in my head. This blog has really helped me to open up. What has really opened the flood gates to my emotions is my IBD community. Everyone I have met, whether it is in real life or on the internet, have been non-judgemental and always have an ear for me. This in turn has helped me to do the same for everyone else. I am so happy to have found my community as you have all helped me grow.
3. One thing I want to share is that even though I have grown I still want to be a better person. I want to do more to help. Throughout the years I have always felt something was missing from my life and now I know what it is. Helping others is so rewarding spiritually. One thing I still want to do is start a charity but I need a lot of help with that. The one thing I need before I move forward is a board of directors. Once I get that, I plan on moving on it. I have tons of ideas…just need the help.
