Aftur’s Christmas Calendar: 22nd of December



She is a YouTuber, a mother, a wife and a nutritionist living in Australia together with her family. She makes videos about family life, food, personal stories/sufferings, health, philosophy/psychology and much more! Ever since I found one of her videos, I have been feeling so inspired by her. She always wanted to be a mother, however, she was diagnosed with Poly Cystic Ovaries (PCOS) at age 16, which includes having very unbalanced hormones in your body. Because of this, her doctor told her it would be very difficult for her to have a child. But that didn’t stop her! After marrying at 19 and settling down, she dived into lots of different research about nutrition and health. She started taking care of her own body, testing out different diets etc – and then – despite all odds – she fell pregnant at 20 – just ONE YEAR after getting married! It was what she always wanted, and she didn’t let her diagnose stop her from having it. I love this type of mindset and drive – really, you can relate it to anything that’s going on in your life right now. If there’s a job you really want, but you don’t have all the qualifications needed – don’t let it stop you! If this woman managed to get pregnant with her diagnose – you can get that job too! It’s all about what’s going on inside your mind. Thank you @sarahlemkus  for making me realize this and for showing me the ups and the downs and lovely positives of having children at a young age. You inspire.
