I often forget how pigeon toed I actually am until I am looking over pictures. The one above clearly shows off how naturally my toes love to touch. When I was younger, it was way worse on one foot, but more recently it has evened out pretty swimmingly. For many years I thought this was yet another body flaw I had to worry about, as if my tummy and tights weren't already enough. Then something strange happened.
My boyfriend, Zachary, mentioned when looking at a photograph of my awkward leg position, "I think it's pretty cute". Wait, really? I thought this was a shortcoming, something to hide away and correct until the imperfection was gone. Then came the "ah ha!" moment. Our imperfections are a part of us. While some of them can be fixed, we cannot magically photoshop ourselves like they do so often in media. And guess what! If you find someone who loves you, it doesn't matter if one eye is larger than the other or if your arms are too hairy. It is these small details that girls and women alike fret over on a constant basis, but listen up,
IT IS OKAY TO BE DIFFERENT!!
Having varying characteristics is what makes us interesting! Even though we are told hide our bodies and be ashamed of anything outside the mold, it is time to give up that train of thought. It is extremely unhealthy. So for once in our lives, let's enjoy our bodies and be happy for everything we have been given!
