“Being fat carries with it a lot of cultural baggage. At the same time, fat people, especially fat women, are supposed to pretend we don’t exist or that we’re not fat. I can’t count the number of times thin people have made reference to fat people or fatness in a negative or joking way in front of me, from the petite woman sitting next to me at the coffee shop complaining about fat people on airplanes, to my friends who routinely make jokes about their “inner fat kids” coming out when they eat a lot, to the women in my family who compete to see who can look the thinnest in family photos. Sometimes it feels like I’m not even there, or that I’m not supposed to be. - Lisa C. Knisely” (via fresafresca)

I don’t speak from my own voice on this blog often, but I thought this was important.

I try to make a point to use social media to share things I am grateful for. Sharing is at the core of who I am, and I want others to see that even the littlest things that they do for me or with me make me so happy. I have always been of the school of thought that 1 positive moment in my life is worth more than so many negative, and should be celebrated.

A good friend and colleague of mine, Brian Santiago, as well as some other folks, thought the same way. They’ve built the most fantastic app for iPhone. It’s called Three Things. It’s a personal journal and feed where you can log three things you are grateful for at the end of each day - and share them with the people you care about most. I’ve been amazed at how much joy one app can hold - and I’m only following a handful of people.

Please take a moment to check it out, and I’ll be sure and follow you. I want to know what you are grateful for. Seeing you happy makes me happy. 

"Be so happy that when others look at you, they become happy, too."
