Just a Drop of Encouragement

Having an optimistic outlook is wonderful. It will not cure anything, but it helps us cope with many things. Surround yourself with people who are uplifting. It is okay to not be optimistic every second of everyday. Allow yourself to feel other emotions. It is okay to be angry, to be overwhelmed, to be stressed, to be sad, to be confused, and to be negative. It is okay to scream and cry. It is okay to have a pity party. Though it is okay, even healthy, do not allow yourself to stay in that negative state of mind. Once you are done with the negativity, pick up your boxing gloves and be ready to fight. To fight for your health, your happiness… To fight for you. You are worth fighting for. Your life is beautiful. You are a warrior. You are a survivor.

The Lord will provide for you emotionally, physically, and spiritually. He will provide just enough at times, this way you can move forward. He meets your ever need. The Lord has blessed you greatly. He has blessed you beyond your understanding and knowledge. He will continue to pour out his blessings in your life, for all of your days. You are flawed and facing unfair struggles but you are so blessed. You have countless things to be grateful for. Let gratitude fill your heart and mind. Allow your heart to sing with thanksgiving.

Welcome, it is an honor you dropped by. I am Victoria. A twenty-something-year-old battling multiple chronic illnesses while learning how to thrive. Chronically Hopeful was designed to educate others and to provide support to those who are chronically ill. Proving encouragement to others is essential to me. I share my health on here. My major illnesses are Lupus, Hyperadrenergic Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, EDS, Mast Cell, Endo, and Ulcerative Colitis. I want to share my story with you hoping you will experience support; that someone else understands your pain, struggles, and frustrations. God has chosen not to heal me but to hold me. The more intense the pain the closer his embrace”. My faith, as a Christian has sustained me through the stormy waters of the past few chapters of my life. I desire to grow closer to God and lead others closer to Him. I help lead two online women’s Bible studies. I also post devotionals. I am pursuing my bachelor’s degree through Liberty University’s online program. Despite my illnesses, I have thrived in school. I am a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, Psi Chi the International Honor Society, and Tau Sigma Honor Society. Abby is my service dog in training. I also have three cats Gracey, Fluffy, and Sadie Rose. I am looking forward to hearing your precious story. Sending hugs, prayers, and spoons. Have an amazing day!
