It’s the Inner Tough Girl – NOT your Inner BUFF Girl.
The Inner Tough Girl has nothing to do with outward appearance. It is the part inside you that stands up and fights when the world is getting you down. It's the voice inside your head that says 'Get off your butt and do something!” The part that doesn't stay in self pity very long and refuses to be a victim of ANYTHING- let alone cancer. I also learned that being ‘tough’ meant crying your heart out some days and picking yourself back up and starting over the next. Now THAT’S tough.
