Never Give Up: Accepting Myself

Hi, my name is Marcela. I'm from Mexico but I've been living in Spain for 12 years. When I was a child my parents had a butcher shop and unfortunately I had an accident with a machine when I was almost 2 years old. This caused me to lose my arm. I have good memories from my childhood but adolescence was undoubtedly a difficult stage. I was insecure, I used to hide my arm in pictures or felt bad when people kept looking. However, that all changed at University when sports became an impulse and I made the decision to accept myself and to love my body. Life is constantly a challenge, sometimes it tests you and maybe you feel tired. We have to renew our mind and let go of all negative thoughts, opinions & focus on our vision. I have only one life in this body and I've decided to keep my faith and love myself. Everything is possible if we just keep trying one day at a time .
