things I believe could truly change the world…

#1: Nanette.

This comedy special is life-changing.

Incredible. It touched me at a deep/raw part of myself and I am so thankful.

It’s on Netflix. It’s wonderful. Grab the tissues.

Speaking of Netflix…

#2: Queer Eye.

I was late to the party, BUT I AM HERE NOW AND ADAMANTLY ON-BOARD.

I want my whole family to watch it. I want every friend I have to watch it. I want every office I’ve ever worked in to watch it. I want everyone who went to the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor (which—did you know?—still has gay-shaming verbiage in their student handbook)

…to watch it. I want basically everyone I know to watch it.

#3: Won’t You Be My Neighbor.

Just watched this tonight and it affected me more than I thought it would. This show was such a huge part of my childhood.

Being loved. Feeling okay in your own skin. Feeling heard. Feeling okay for who you are. Isn’t this what we all want? Thank you, Mr. Rodgers. Thank you.

#4: Music of Your Loving.

We went to Sylvan Esso last night. It was an absolutely incredible show. It was outside and we watched the sunset as we sang and danced along with many new friends. So much dancing. As the last song ended, we were sweaty, smiling, and filled with love. The dance floor mostly cleared, but a gorgeous song by the newly late Richard Swift came on…

My heart burst. Evan and I started slow dancing and trotting and doo-wopping around. Others did, too. Then it was about 50 of us, just having one last dance. Together. Ugh, it was magical. Just dancing like that together. It was one of those forever moments. So special.

It was already on this mix I can’t stop listening to, but now it’s got the coveted last track.

There’s a lot going on out there. Remember to love yourself. Remember to love your neighbor. Dance with them.

[love y’all.]
