A few months ago I bought a new swimsuit.
A really cute one, with bright, borderline 90’s neon, colors. This may seem like a very basic thing to do, but for me it was a milestone. That’s right.
Because, you see, this swimsuit was *whispers* a two-piece.
Natural disasters. Senseless tragedies. Injustice after injustice.
Sometimes it feels like things just won’t get better.
But we need to persist.
The world is often dark.
It can be cruel, unapologetic, and heart breaking.
But we must continue to fight the good fight.
To amplify the voices that need to be heard.
To find the light in people.
To offer kindness whenever possible.
All without compromising our true selves.
