I’m really pleased tonight to be re-posting a piece written by Jill, who is not only a friend and fellow blogger, but also an inspiration to me. The following is from her blog, and appears here with permission (thanks, Jill!).
I’ve always felt rather negatively about my legs… they’re too short, they’re too thick, they’re ugly…
True, my legs are not at all like a supermodels’ legs… but then, most people aren’t like supermodels. My legs ARE short… I frequently have to buy petite pants or hem them. Skinny jeans just don’t fit right on my muscular thighs. I frequently have bruises all over my legs. Sometimes boots won’t zip around my calves.
But my legs are doing the job for me just fine. They’ve run thousands of miles. They carry me through my day-to-day activities. I can walk, skip, jump, run…
And those things are far better than wearing skinny jeans.
