“Life and love isn’t about what you gain, it’s about what you give.”

If you’ve known someone or had a chronic disease yourself, you know how hard it can be to keep up a positive attitude month after month and year after year. That is why I love talking to my friend Somer, who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis as a baby and is an amazing advocate for love and positivity.

Somer Love is the founder of Love to Breathe®, established in 2001, so she could give hope and positive energy to the Cystic Fibrosis community, especially to the families with newly diagnosed children. She believes it is important to educate and raise awareness about CF and spread love whenever and wherever she can. She’s out to change the world! Somer tries to live each day to the fullest by keeping her hopes high, and dreams big!! She is 40 years old living with Cystic Fibrosis and she is an active advocate in the CF community.

This conversation is as uplifting as they get. It will turn your day around and remind you that breathing is a gift, and we can each be grateful for what we have.

Here’s what you will learn:⁣

  • How Somer got started handing out “love tokens” (3:00)
  • How she gets through moments where she feels stuck and what she does to keep moving forward (11:21)
  • Using gratitude to shift your perspective(18:19)
  • How Somer stays active during the pandemic with CF (22:31)
  • How Somer has grounded herself with alternative meditation (28:41)
  • How she builds her community and connection to support her for positive experiences and you can too(32:12)
