Do not be discouraged by pain.Hope and joy can come again.

Have you seen the clip that has gone viral on Katelyn Ohashi 's floor performance? It was beautiful. She was smiling and very comfortable and skilled in every move she did. But... I did not know and probably many of you do not know is how she had struggled before. Her aim was to be the best in gymnastics, she was close, but due to injuries she could not be there. Later she was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, a disorder affecting the end part of intestine that can cause blood in stool, pain, urgency and so really affect the person's quality of life. That has affected her,... But... It did not stop her.

Her couch has been so important in her journey. So surround yourself with people who nourish you. The joy and exuberance in her face is so life giving. We do not have to be the best, but we can bring life to us and others in what we do with passion.
