Today is THE day four years ago that I wrote the blog post ‘Exposed‘.
Then people started to take notice. 119 people have exposed themselves at least one time, and countless others have re-exposed themselves in 2010 and during this past week.
I often get people who say ‘thank you Mish for starting this movement, for being brave, for enabling others’. To be honest, I don’t feel it’s me at all. I’m just a girl, from Oregon, living in Oz who was tired of hating every.single.thing.about.me. So I tried to love on myself. I’m just grateful that others felt connected to the original jist of the first post I wrote. They too felt compelled to expose themselves.
I feel privileged to have the links here, because it’s a constant reminder of the grassroot potential of change. It shines as an example of people choosing, one.by.one, to take their lives in their own hands and make positive change for themselves. There is still hurt, struggle, and angst in people’s exposed posts….but there’s joy, hope, and accomplishment as well.
So, I just want to say ‘CHEERS’ to everyone who has stopped by, exposed themselves, even thought about it, and cheered others on who have. We all the the enormous power to change ourselves, the way we think and how we live our lives.
just because the official week is over…you can still participate in the Exposed Movement whenever you’d like. Hop on over here, and it explains how to get involved!
