So I’m hurting pretty bad, partly because of a flaky trade partner, partly because of those odd symptoms post Covid. I’m headed to a paid massage to fix the mechanical related aches and will take a salt bath when I get home. Hopefully the two will get me close to normal.
Anyway, yesterday we ended up at KC Pride Fest. I’m still not sure if I misunderstood the order of things with Anya’s friends, or if they just decided to swap the order. Either way, today is Parkville Days, and yesterday’s festival was right up my alley.
I ended up with a rainbow bag, a rainbow bracelet, and the finale was I bought myself a pride shirt and a new equality sticker from the event supporters.
The shirt shown below is my first size large tee-shirt since I don’t remember when, probably middle school. I’ve managed larges in stretchy polyester shirts that are cut right, but this is the first plain Jane tee. Having worked in screen printing, I know very well the standards that tee shirts stick to, and so I’m very aware that being able to wear a large tee means I have definitely shrunk. It’s a happy moment.
I chose a sarong to pair with my shirt, out of comfort. It’s not so flattering to my saggy belly, but I’m still happy to share my progress. Comfort and smaller = happiness and contented.
May you enjoy Pride Fest wherever you are. May you have moments of recognition of your progress. May you enjoy your days mostly and find many reasons to be happy and satisfied. May you feel good and know you are healthy. Above all may you know that the divine loves and supports you in all that you do.
