Happy Monday everybody! Over  the weekend, I came across this gem from Cosmopoliton, of all places! As I watched this video of this man, I was astounded and teary eyed. All too often, we try to fix something on ourselves but the end result looks completely different than what we imagined. This man stands before the whole world trying to take pride in who he is and I envy the strength he has.


On another note, has everyone heard of #dancingmanfound? There was this man who was ridiculed while out dancing which made him stop and feel unworthy of having a good time! Well, I believe it was over 1200 women in California have found this man and asked to through a party for him where he could dance with whomever he wished for as long as he wished. 

Today, we have such a long way to go on accepting oursevles as well as others, but every day we come a little closer. It encourages me to see these stories and hear the triumphs we make as a community. Keep up the positivety, everybody! You are all amazing and beautiful just the way you are!
