Forever Strong has been my catch phrase over the last few years. We all have a story behind what we say even if we don’t realize it.
Why Forever Strong?
I chose the phrase Forever Strong because there have been days where I feel like it is too tough to go on and what’s the point. When my pain hits its threshold I will sometimes wonder if I can truly handle living like this for the rest of my life.
I have always liked the idea of the infinity symbol and it’s representation of forever. For a while I used the saying rise because I couldn’t think of the word I wanted. One day the phrase forever strong came into my head and I have used it ever since.
Using My Phrase To Help Others
I started using the hashtag #foreverstrong in all of my posts for With Love, Alexa. I continued to use it in my speeches, videos, and everyday life. I realized there was more that could be done. That is when I started to create merchandise. Originally it started out for just me to wear around, but then I finally created a couple of pieces that I wanted to sell.
My mission is to help people who feel like they don’t have a voice, or who feel like the are alone. At one point I was in such a bad place because no one could figure out what was wrong with me. Doctors were telling me they couldn’t help me anymore and sent me elsewhere. I also had a Doctor basically tell me it was in my head and that I am normal and healthy. I knew I wasn’t and I made it my mission to advocate for myself because in that moment I realized I am the ONLY one who knew my body better than anyone. I had amazing support with my family, my boyfriend and friends, but there were days I felt so alone.
