Oh hey rainbow smoothies, it just so happens that June is Pride Month, so cheers to these smoothies being a perfect fit to celebrate any and everyone who identifies as being in the LGBTQ community - and their loved ones who support them as well. One of the greatest advances I believe that my generation has done is pave the way for equality, acceptance and celebration of this community. Obviously, we aren't all the way there, and there is much inequality still in our world, but I for one am so thankful the diversity and strength brought into this world by this community as well as all the ways we can embrace and foster diversity. It may be a silly or small thing for me to even mention this here on my blog, but I truly believe that everyone has a voice and it's so easy in today's world to forget how to use it. There is so much judgement, negativity and anger online, it can be a scary place to speak up or even be vulnerable or even speak up for someone else, but I think it's important. Using my voice is something I continually work on - in all areas of my life. And it's funny, looking back on my life, no matter how scary, awkward or alone I felt - I can't think of one single time that I regret using my voice and standing up for myself - or other people.

This life is a constant conversation, what are you choosing to say? And how can you share your POV?

And now I'm driving into territory I covered in this recent post.
