I Stopped Shaving My Legs Because I Didn't Like Them

So, I didn’t shave my legs because I didn’t like them.

“Did not like them?” You ask.

Yes. You read it right. I did not like them.

 

You see, my legs told a story.

By looking at my legs you could tell my age.

By looking at my legs you could tell my weight.

By looking at my legs you could tell my diet.

By looking at my legs you could tell that I had given birth.

By looking at my legs you could tell I had given up.

 

See, your appearance can tell your story.

Your appearance can tell your secrets.

Your appearance can tell your struggles.

 

So, one day I woke up and said, “Self. Do not allow your legs to tell anymore stories.”

It was important that I started taking care of myself.

It was important that my health came first.

It was important that I took pride in my appearance.

It was important that I shave my legs again.

 

So, that’s what I did.

I started watching my diet.

I started hitting the gym.

I started taking my health seriously.

And, I am getting one step closer to my goal of SHAVING MY LEGS AGAIN!
