    A few weeks back, I wrote a column about the connection between snowflakes and MG.

    “I feel it’s essential we look to snowflakes for their wisdom in demonstrating our ability to remain unique throughout life after diagnosis…

    Like those of us with MG, each snowflake swirls and spirals down a different path to the ground. It advances through layers of clouds differing in temperature and moisture. The snowflake’s descent molds its shape and size, making it unique.

    Snowflakes demonstrate that we emerge complete and beautiful at the end of our journeys. It won’t always be easy to grasp this during our battles. But our trials are teaching us the same lessons as the snowflakes, even when we are unaware.

    We are not the same as everyone else with MG. We don’t have to accept others’ opinions of what is best for us without advocating for ourselves. We never have to linger within the stereotypical lines projected onto us. We can set our minds to accomplish more than our medical teams tell us we will be able to. And we will always overcome people who try to stop us.

    We need not get caught up longing for a day when we are fully enlightened. We will never appreciate it because we achieve the wisest version of ourselves at the very end. Drift through life’s dark clouds and rainy days without hesitation, remembering they are shaping us into personally crafted crystals. Savor reflecting on your progress periodically.”
