Snowflake Challenge - Day 15

 Challenge #15

In your own space, create your own challenge. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

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!
