Meet lovely 20-year-old Nigerian lady named Doris who is celebrating 7 years of being an amputee. The beauty took to her IG page to share these lovely photos with an inspirational message. She is not deterred by her condition.
“TODAY I STILL REJOICE!”
”Happy anniversary to me!
”Today makes it the 7th year of my survival. I shall rejoice during the month of November because this is the month that I had my right leg amputated. When God decided that I can be a better person than what I thought I might have been.
”November – the month when I stepped into the gravel road, it was never easy; the pain, tears, heartbreak, torture, depression and all the negative vices you can imagine.
”After accepting myself for who I am, today I know happiness, love, care, faith, hope, strength and vision with a purpose to be alive because I never gave up. I was not cursed but God chose me to be His living testimony. He made it a point that I am different from majority. Look at me 7 years later, I am a queen and I have been positive.
”I am 20 years old, I am a confident young woman. I believe that disability is attitude. I believe I’m no difference from any woman and I cannot be defined less than that.
”Basically, I choose not to be defined by my challenges. So in my 7 years as an amputee, I have learned to have self-love, my clutches are my best accessories. I always have my beautiful smile as my make-up. It defines me before the world. It is the voice to my silence.
”I see so much faith in myself and it scares me. To think of where I have been and where I am going makes me emotional. I will change the world tomorrow!
”I am happy with or without a limb!! FOOTNOTE:
”That something wonderful is going to happen even with all the ups and downs.
”/ Never take a day for granted.
” Cherish the little things and hug the ones you love.
” No pain, no gain.
” I believe we are all bound to face challenges and when they come, we have got to be strong.
