Welcome to #Cammunity Chatter, an occasional roundup of some of the best and sassiest social media statements that speak.
Happy almost March! For those of us who live in the northern hemisphere, spring is almost here. And after this cold winter, I think most of us are ready for the seasonal warming shift.
We’re starting this month with an encouraging message from Catjira.
This week has been rough and I just want you to know I’m proud of you for getting through it ♡

Well, with the way this entire season has gone — the crazy news cycle, the massive winter storms and so much more — this message could apply to any given week. So, we hope its well-meaning wishes reach you today and buoy your spirit.
Next up is spring cleaning advice from Melody Kush.
Spring cleaning came early this year! Spent my entire evening obsessively cleaning out my closet, going through all my clothing and shooting equipment/lighting, clearing out anything I don't use or need.
Organized apartment = organized soul.
To be continued tomorrow.. ?

I hear you, Melody. I have to clean my space — which also clears my mind — before I start any new work project. And my closet needs a little extra TLC, too. I can only imagine how many bags of soon-to-be-donated clothing I’ll soon pack-up.
Amberly Rothfield has been working on her physical wellness lately. In addition to her usual business and cute pet updates, she’s also been sharing a lot about her health-related goals lately — and she gets pretty real in terms of struggles and cheat days.
2 lbs down. Really just being more active as we set up our homestead and increasing water intake. Also doing a no car challenge for a few things. Found a gym with a pool and considering competitive swimming again. #weightloss #backtoswimmersbody. pic.twitter.com/Z6vy0v1oLu

These updates are small doses of levity anyone on a similar journey might love to read. Take it in, day by day!
Relatedly, Missy Martinez — who’s an excellent blend of funny and thoughtful on Twitter — had this to say about body image amongst sex workers:
Something that gets glossed over when talking about the health of sex workers is eating disorders. Being naked for a living warps and skews how we view and treat our bodies. Please know you are GORGEOUS at ANY size. Be happy. Be healthy. Be YOU!

Thanks Missy! That’s something we all hopefully know, but boy if it isn’t good to get a reminder to bring this to the forefront of our minds some days.
Janice Griffith has some advice we all could stand to read.

She’s right. Sometimes, I find myself stuck in a social media debate that is unnecessary. None of us owe anyone our knowledge or time.
Next, Lindsey Banks reminds us of the small joys of frequent travel.

It is the simple things that improve life.
And let’s end with a heartwarming story from Sydney Leathers.
I made a cold weather shelter for the stray cats I feed & I wasn’t sure if anybody had been using it, but I just saw my favorite cat of the bunch come out of it & I’m so happy ??

This is by far the most lovely story I’ve read in a while. Good on you, Sydney. I bet you make those cats’ lives much better and a lot warmer.
That’s it for this month. See you all again at the end of March when spring has officially arrived.
