#Repost from @mmwithnimi. I try not to miss @udo_okonjo events. She always has inspiring speakers and yesterdays @inspiredwomenofworth “Cocktails and Connect” was no different. Sosoliso survivor, @kechi_agt’s words were pure inspiration and a true testament to Gods Grace in adversity.
MOVE FORWARD AGAINST ALL ODDS
1) Things happen. Acknowledge when bad things happen. The “woe is me” moments are important, so do go through them, but don’t let them cripple you or stunt your growth. Don’t stay in that “pity party” mode for too long. Make a choice to get up.
2) Everyone has different scars; some are external, visible and only skin deep whilst others are internal. Internal scars take longer to heal as often we do not acknowledge or confront them. It is only when you deal with your scars that you can begin to heal. Don’t be defined by your scars whether internal or external.
3) The best things in life come when you are out of your comfort zone. A friend submitted the application form for America’s Got Talent (AGT) without telling her; Kechi reached the FINAL!
She had always loved singing since she was 12 years old but miraculously her voice improved dramatically after her tracheostomy, one of over 100 surgeries. Take risks even when you are afraid. Do it anyway.
Do you have the right friends in your life that push, support, challenge, and lift you?

Every pain has a purpose.
Great strength comes from it.
I hope Kechi’s words inspire you; they certainly did me.
Let’s all have a great week!
