What is your favorite part of your body and why?
“Exterior beauty without the depth of a kind soul is merely decoration.” ~ Unknown
My favorite part of my body has always been my dimples. I knew this question was going to come up in these prompts. Whenever it would cross my mind, I wondered how I would answer it. It seems like a straightforward question, but it’s really not. Our bodies are constantly changing. I love that. It’s one of the few things we actually have some power over. We can workout and get ripped, stay chilled out and just not worry, or anything in between. It’s up to you. So, I think I could answer this question one way now and have a different answer in a month. I’d actually admit that using dimples as my answer is a cop-out. I will always have those—to a certain extent.
Let me count out all the things that won’t necessarily undergo major changes (eyes, dimples, hands, etc.). In that case, I’d say my legs. I’ve always had the longest legs. And, I’ll proudly admit, legs that are covered in scars. I didn’t really play it safe as a kid; falling on the ground, crawling, or diving for things that left scars didn’t concern me. The stretch marks that I now have from gaining a bit of weight—then working my ass off to lose it all—don’t bother me anymore. I’m proud of every scar. Every scar has a story. They are all a tiny piece of who I am. Who I am…makes me proud.
