“No matter what the disease has thrown my way, I have never lost sight of my dream to have a fabulous life.” Katina Rae Stapleton
This week, I am coming into the homestretch of the Health Activists Writer’s Month Challenge. I am excited that I was able to blog every day (with the exception of a post that went live after midnight). Today’s HAWMC topic is close to my heart:
“Today you are challenged with the task of writing a tagline. This can be for your blog, your health condition or for yourself.”
Since I already have a tagline for the Butterfly Lessons blog, this assignment was super easy . . .
Living a Fabulous Life with Lupus
I picked “fabulousness” as the theme of my blog, because I hate low expectations. I refuse to believe that a lupus diagnosis must lead to a sad, dreary, lonely, painful life. I have a full life and know many fellow lupus butterflies who are overcoming obstacles to pursue their hopes and dreams. Many of them I have “met” online:
There is Christine Miserandino, who came up the idea of using spoons to describe living with lupus. Her website But You Don’t Look Sick is an oasis for spoonies who live with chronic illnesses and invisible disabilities. You can find her on Twitter as @bydls.
I am also inspired by these super fabulous “tweeps” and fellow lupus bloggers:
- Tiffany Peterson of the Tiffany and Lupus blog, @TiffanyAndLupus on Twitter.
- Amanda Greene, aka LA Lupus Lady – @LALupusLady on Twitter.
- Juliana Joie – @julianajoie on Twitter.
Before you leave Butterfly Lessons today, check out the Blogroll for links to other lupus bloggers and organizations who are trying to make life better for those of us living with lupus (one day at a time).
Take care & be fabulous,
Katina Rae Stapleton
