Life is about change, about adapting to our situation in order to better ourselves. Life is about growth. We learn from the things we must endure, and sometimes we become better people because of those things. This is my journey. In 28 short years I have already learned so much, but I have a long way to go. It's time to take my life back, it's time for me. This is my self discovery.

It has raised their average raising of $1.9Million (during the same period of time) in 2013 to over $23 million as of tuesday morning just for this year.
The ALS Association and its chapters collectively raised about $64 million last year, spokesperson Carrie Munk told me. But in the past three weeks, the organization has seen more than a 1100% increase in year-over-year donations — all attributable to the challenge.
The challenge has provided an important bonus, too: The hard-to-value reward of awareness.
“The money is wonderful, but the real positive story out of this is the visibility that this disease is getting,” Munk pointed out. The ALS Association recently surveyed about 1,000 people with a history of giving to philanthropic causes, and while nearly everyone knew about disease like HIV/AIDS, only about half were aware of ALS.
So that dumb 5 second video? It’s fucking brilliant to raise awareness.
