On Being Ok with Where We are Right Now: A Story By, Mikayla Vacher

This is, Mikayla,

Headstrong, courageous, empathetic, determined, loving, and optimistic, all while in the face of pain. In the face of obstacles so big they could crush you at a moments notice. With her unwavering hope and will to make this life, her life, an adventurous one, Mikayla encourages us to see all that we have (the people, places, and things...) as enough.

As more than enough. As every reason to keep pushing forward, even when the world around you does not seem to be working in your favor. Even when you find yourself trudging through the deep waters of anxiety and depression, desperately trying to make sense of the slew of symptoms coming at you from all directions, Mikayla helps us to see that this illness, so often seen as our weakness, can instead give us the strength that we need to create a life more than. 

To take all that we already are, and put it towards a life we fall in love with over and over again.

Healing Happens, If You Let It: Rebecca's Take on Her Fight with Lyme Disease

This is, Rebecca

A courageous, loyal, passionate, creative, and resilient young woman, determined to push back against the odds stacked against her, creating a life for herself around the idea that despite this disease being at the forefront of her day-to-day, she can live a life more than the obstacles it brings. That she can still move with the kind of softness and grace that encourages others to do the same. That encourages others to get after whatever it is they wish to do, no matter how impossible their dreams may seem. 

Rebecca shows us that leaning into fear and feeling vulnerable is a good thing. That taking little adventures, sharing our story, and having our voices be heard is making a difference. That living through the good, the bad, and the ugly is oh so worth it.
