Day 10 – 31 Day Blog Challenge
Hey guys, sorry I didn’t post this yesterday. I had a bloody awful day and absolutely no time to blog.
Today (technically yesterday), I am to blog about my best physical feature. Now I actually really like this idea because I feel that we, as people, spend so much more of our time thinking about the things we dislike of ourselves versus the things we do like.
I have always struggled with my body image. I’ve always been physically active, but never “skinny.” And for some reason, being “skinny” is just so important to everyone. I’ve been judged for what I eat, and once someone very close to me told me I just needed to “lose weight” because I was interested in getting a breast reduction. So I’ve had my difficulties, and it doesn’t make it easier when people around you agree with the horrible things you feel about yourself.
Now I don’t have 100% body confidence, and I’m working on that all the time. I do want to lose weight and look my best. But the difference now is that I want to do that for myself, not for anyone else, and definitely not because someone told me they thought I needed to. I’m a size 8. I used to think that was such an awful number and would be embarrassed if anyone knew. But hey, now I don’t give a shit.
I have really done some work on myself in the last year. I have learned to accept my flaws and the things I can’t change. And I have focused on changing the things that I do have control over. As I stated at the beginning of this challenge, my boyfriend has truly helped me learn to love myself more and be more confident in my body. I’m very proud of what I have accomplished and have motivation to keep working hard at it.
But there are some things I have always loved about myself. And in my humble opinion, my best physical feature has always been my eyes. As you’ll be able to tell from the pictures, my left eye is all brown. But my right eye has a bit of a tie-die type look to it with brown, blue, and green. The fact that I have two different colored eyes is very weird. But it is also so unique, and I love it. Here’s a close up of it:
And that’s about all I can say about my eyes… There’s definitely a lot of other things I like about myself, but I had to pick my favorite.
