For weeks, I have been wanting to start a new project, I have had so many ideas milling about in my mind, but not clear focus or strategy to implement it. Then, one day, it hit me. The name came, the ideas all flowed and so was born, The Chronic Glow Up.
Behind the Name
The Chronic Glow Up is all about your personal development as someone with a chronic illness. It’s not about recovery, or getting rid of your symptoms, because as much as I would to be able to do that, it simply isn’t possible.
What it is about though is learning to understand and accept your illness, and learning how to live with it. It is about becoming more confident and empowered in your body, knowing how to be your own advocate, and believing that you can still have and create the life you want, even with a chronic illness.
It is about knowing that a diagnosis is not a life sentence, and that actually, our chronic illnesses can open many doors and teach us many things, not only about ourselves but about life in general.
Glow up to me, is not just about a physical change, but a mental shift. A change from within. We are going to help you glow, inside and out, and radiate positivity. Learn how to shift your mindset, banish negative thoughts and ideas and create a more positive and optimistic mindset altogether.
What can you expect to see?
On the instagram page, you will find information, tips and advice all about living with a chronic illness as well as other people’s experiences with theirs. We’re going to focus on the positives, what our illness have taught us, how we manage our symptoms while still living our lives! Think inspiring quotes, infographics, testimonials from people within the community, and overall just positive vibes.
