We all have human bodies. They're all in various stages of illness, wellness, growth, and repair. They're all something so very temporary and precious. They won't hold us forever.
It's okay to love yourself and this thing we're lucky enough to ride around in, even when it's not perfect or something is broken. We don't have to wait for some magical achievement to justify our enjoyment of life in our amazing bizarro complicated bodies.
Yes, celebrate your achievements. But it would be my hope that we celebrate just being here as well. To have not a care in the world about "What would ____ think if they saw me?" and "Ohhh, just... Wow. I can't do this. What was I thinking?!". To let our knowledge and brain power comprehend self love and the foolishness of falling for stereotypes and societal bias. To be smart enough to not emulate shame but confidence to our children and peers, so that those around us know there's a different way to live besides being ashamed. So that we can break the cycle for the next generation, and let them live and love and laugh more.
So much more.
I could have easily written a book here about how I feel when it comes to my own experiences with bodily autonomy and those who tried to take it from me, or the various ways I was expected to be shamed into a corner and not love who I was.
But it shouldn't take that much effort to have the intended message heard. It's not a difficult one if the belief in equality and humanity is there.
Be excellent to each other.
