Doing this challenge over the last month has made me ponder how the word 'snowflake' has taken on a different, and unfortunately negative, connotation with some of the more unsavoury sectors of the media and groups of people over recent years.
John Cleese once said: 'yes, I've heard this word; I think sociopaths use it in an attempt to discredit the notion of empathy.'
So, ignoring certain lowbrow opinions, let's think positively about snowflakes for a moment
- They're beautiful
- They're inspiring
- Each one is unique
- Individually they can be delicate; maybe even fragile. But bonded together they can paralyse a city or create an avalanche that can sweep everything before them.
And that made me think of my f/listies, and fandom in general ... and thus my challenge was born!
My challenge is to love yourself as much as I love all of you - my snowflakes. Leave a comment at this post telling me just one beautiful, inspiring or unique thing about yourself. It'll probably be something I already know, but maybe something you need to remind yourself of - this is your chance!
Let me see an avalanche of self-appreciation and beautiful snowflakery!
