Spirit Day

Posting this because it’s important to post, and may resonate strongly with some of you.

I love the concept of it: not anti anything, but pro.  Because that is what ultimately takes the power away from others and roots it in yourself.

Not just in terms of bullying, which is an issue for some but not all people with disabilities, but it’s fundamentally about self-awareness, compassion, thoughtfulness, and knowing yourself and what you yourself have the power to change.

It’s about spirit, in many ways.  Not the corny, over-hyped heroism of so much of the cultural views on disability, it’s the spirit of living your own life to the best of your ability and living it with spirit.
