What I love about my body

Usually when you ask a woman what she loves about her body she’ll list all the things she hates. My ass is fat; I hate my thighs; My skin is bad, etc. She could go on. Because women are conditioned to be modest; to think a celebration of their bodies is a bad characteristic, they’ll always find something wrong. Well enough is enough.
Let’s think about what we love about our bodies. There must be at least one thing. Just one. Once you’ve identified it, think of another, and another and another until you have at least five.
I’ve sat long and hard thinking of what I like about my body. It was difficult to get five but here goes:
1. My hands. They’re slim with long fingers. They look graceful when I wave and they can type a document in very little time.
2. My legs. They’re long and beautifully shaped.
3. My eyes are a boring brown but have a lovely shape and sparkle prettily when I’m happy.
4. My feet are smaller than the average person of my height. They’re kinda quirky.
5. My cleavage is not too big and not too small. Perfect.
What do you like about yours?

    I have big brown, expressive eyes. People see them first.

    I love that I’m short…5’1″….it completes the package.

    I have small, flat ears….pony tails? No problem

    Lastly, I love my ability to recognize that I’m happy and lovable, in spite of some physical shortcomings. I’m happy that I can see worth and the lovability in others who also deal with their shortcomings.

    I enjoyed your post. It made me think.

    Mmmm difficult one. Ek dink ek het nice eyes. Definitely die mooiste ore in my familie. At first I hated having only one dimple, maar nou’t ek vrede gemaak en opgehou om te probeer om ‘n gat in my ander wang te druk. Ek hou van my breë skouers & a lover once said I had a flawless back, wat nogal gaaf is. Maar die een ding wat niemand my sal van kan oortuig nie, is dat ek mooi tone het nie. Buiten my familie is daar net vier (4) mense wat die afgelope 10 jaar my tone gesien het. Yes, it’s that bad…

    It will now become my mission to see your toes… i’ll be sneaky if I have to.
