Not a sad story

"I'm going to make everything around me beautiful -that will be my life"  Elsie de Wolfe

I don't want my blog and my story to be one that makes others feel sad or sorry for me.
I don't want to be known as the 'sick girl'.
I don't want your pity.
I don't want that look of sympathy or the uncomfortable silence as you search for the right words to say.

Lupus is not my life; it's in my life but it does not make up who I am.
It has shaped me and changed me but I am so much more than simply an illness.

So who is the real Liv?

I have been blessed with 24 beautiful years on earth.
I am the girl who laughs a little to loud and a little too much.
I adore and treasure my family, my partner and my friends they are my whole world and complete me in every way.
Baking cupcakes and cakes makes me a little too excited.
Being in and by the water/sea instantly calms and puts me at peace. 
I love celebrations; birthdays, Christmas, weddings any reason to celebrate the good in life.
I have my mothers determination and cheekiness and my fathers focused and gentle personality traits.
My house is filled with quotes on the walls, photographs, butterflies and mismatch teacups and teapots.
I believe the greatest gift you can give someone is your time and smiles have the power to change someones day.
I am grateful for this moment right now, for the air I breathe, my heart that beats and my soul that is peaceful.
I crave that in the near future I will be able to work in the community and feel fulfilled and satisfied.
I dream of one day marrying my best friend and nothing makes my soul happier.
I pray for my own beautiful future family; to be able to care and love them as much as my mum and dad did for me.
I go to sleep at night knowing I am truly loved and am in love.

I am lucky; I am blessed and I am so thankful for this wonderful life!
