I used to think being beautiful meant I needed to wear the popular designers, follow the latest trends, have the “in” shoes… but I was wrong. Being beautiful is being proud of the person you are and expressing yourself in the way you live your life. It’s having the self-confidence to rock what YOU have and shine the light from within. Never forget that a beautiful outside starts with a beautiful inside. ♥
Sure, I’ll admit there are days when I miss my cute riding boots or suede flats and there are times when I’m out with friends and see their cute sandals and wish I could be wearing them, too! But, it’s in these moments that I look down see my ExoSym and I look up and see the person I have become. I remember the hard times and how much the device has changed my life — I put my hand to my heart, look into the mirror, smile, (& sometimes do a little dance because YOLO), and I rock on.
So, the next time you are tempted to compare yourself or wonder about your outfit, take a moment to reflect on the beauty in your strength. That is beautiful. You are beautiful. Believe it. Become it. Because YOU are beautiful. Be proud to be YOU. #ExoSymplyBeautiful

I currently wear a bulky AFO, but I hope to get the ExoSym. I love fashion and this has been one of the hardest things for me to adjust to since wearing an AFO. Your photos & story have really inspired me!! I just want to say Thank You!!!
