Simply put, my 'why' is my father.
He did everything within his power to make sure I was doing well. Two years ago my father expressed his concerns - 'I want to make sure you are healthy and happy. I want to make sure you will be okay when I'm gone'. This heightened all of my emotions. How could I possibly be okay if you're no longer with me?! But reality struck in May 2019 when I lost my father to cancer.
I have to be healthy and happy.
It is for him. To make sure that I still make him proud every single day. It is for me. To make sure I am ultimately proud of the girl in the mirror. To make sure I even love the girl in the mirror. I deserve this and my father would want this for me. I know I can do this.
