Proud of Pride

I’ll admit it, I’ll admit it.

I put a lot of weight in visual appearance every minute.

At 15, I signed up to be an organ donor so I could get the red heart on my driver’s license.

Social media and saturation. I can’t seem to edit a picture without including doctored-up edits. I dig the more energetic aesthetics.

Over the weekend, I had the privilege of indulging my exuberant color palette in the San Francisco Pride Parade. I brought some of my best friends from my UVa days and we marched with my Facebook co-workers.

Just like there can be several shades of one color, there are several ways to going about living a happy life.

Like color, the more radiance in a person, the more beauty that’s captivated. The brighter the spirit, the greater the beauty.

So finally, love wins.

Pride.

Have pride in yourself and beliefs.

Celebrate who you are because you’re pretty great.
