Fluctuat Nec Mergitur

 

I wanted my photo to represent strength, confidence and independence, as well as involving an element of balance. Recovery to me means living a full and varied life, sharing it with those I love, and feeling able to cope with whatever comes along. It means standing on my own two feet, feeling like a valid member of society, and being true to myself and my personality. I took the title from the motto of Paris because it is an excellent phrase to illustrate life not being without its difficulties, but not having them overwhelm us.
