Because we all need a reminder about positive body image.
Also, this woman has been making her way around the Facebook circuit after she posted an image of herself in her underwear and called out the folks who tried to make her feel bad about her body. (She uses some adult language, so click through with caution)

We love purple at the WRC and we never support bullying of folks because of their sexual identities, so Spirit Day is totally our kind of day. Join us today and every day in standing up and speaking out against bullying.
“Millions wear purple on Spirit Day as a sign of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth and to speak out against bullying. Spirit Day was started in 2010 as a response to the young people who had taken their own lives. Observed annually, individuals, schools, organizations, corporations, media professionals and celebrities wear purple, which symbolizes spirit on the rainbow flag.” (via)

First things first, sorry it’s been so long friends. A month can fly by without you even realizing it, especially when a new semester starts!
So, I realize I’ve posted about Amy Poehler’s Ask Amy series here before, but when I saw this today it spoke to my heart. And I think for all of you out there who are introverts like me, that it will speak to your heart as well. I think her advice is spot on and I wish it hadn’t taken me so long to figure it out. In short, I wish Amy Poehler was, as she calls it, my nervous buddy at parties and in all social situations where I think I might pass out if I have to make small talk with another stranger. Also I love that she says it’s okay to feel weird, because weirdos rule the world.
