If you haven’t seen Susan Boyle, then this is a must see. And if you’re wondering how this could possibly relate to autoimmune diseases, well let’s just say that Susan is a great example of life’s unexpected pleasures. She’s also an example of how people can be so judgmental based on appearance.
When 47-year-old small town spinster Susan Boyle stepped on to the stage of Britain’s Got Talent and announced she was unemployed, had never been married and “never been kissed, actually,” few in the audience would have wondered why. With unkempt hair and Leonid Breshnev eyebrows, and mention of her ten-year-old cat “Pebbles,” the Blackburn, Scotland lass resembled basically every other reality TV talent show timewaster who talks big and delivers nothing but personal humiliation on a national stage.-The Vancouver Sun
Her singing will give you goosebumps, and if you’re anything like me, you might imagine a Disney princess singing and stirring the whimsical magic all around her. Watching this video should give you hope that life can be full of wonderful surprises. This should inspire everyone to never give up hope on their dreams. Maybe YOUR dream is to put your autoimmune disease in remission, or to help someone you know get better. Whatever your dream, Susan is a prime example that you are never too old or too inexperienced. You just never know when that day will come that will be a life changing event. For Susan, it was this day and this performance. I am sure her kiss is just around the corner…..
