The cutest trend has been buzzing around Instagram; you post a photo of the Disney character that best fits your personality in honor of September being Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
The lovely Kira Petersen assigned Minnie Mouse as my character, 
and she couldn't have been more spot on. 
Before we get to why Minnie is basically my spirit animal, 
you have to meet Kira:
Kira is a warrior to say the least. Within the last year she has endured the life changing diagnosis of PNH (a very rare blood disorder), a bone marrow transplant, what has felt like a lifetime of hospital stays and countless tests.

 But she is NOT letting this disease define her.
Minnie Mouse goes right up there with Lucille Ball, Audrey Hepburn and Iris Apfel in my list of style icons. Nothing can beat her classic combinations of bold reds, sweet pinks and bright yellows; not to mention while styling a that bow like a boss! 
"Life is hard. And I think that's a common knowledge that everyone has come to know. We all have our own trials, difficulties, and worries. However; it is SO good too... Because without these challenges we wouldn't be where or who we are today. Trials make us stronger. They make us more knowledgeable. They make us who we are (along with everything good in life too). But I've learned something these past months. Within trials we come to know things that we wouldn't have ever known without them. You learn to appreciate the little things, and the things that matter most in life like your family and friends. You learn things about yourself that you wouldn't have known without these trials, like how strong you actually are. I have learned so much through out this whole bone marrow transplant process and watching small little kiddos I've become so close with fighting for their lives against cancer. But mostly how precious and great life is, and how it's so worth fighting for; that miracles still happen today, and that God loves us all so so much."

Kira, you've got this. Don't ever forget what an inspiration you are, and the fantastic impact that you have on the lives of others!
