hello down there!
my feet, funny how we take them for granted sometimes. i stand on them all day at work, i walk with them, i dance with them. and through all the high heels, falls, injuries and the weight loss/gain roller coaster…these are the feet that hold me down. so after years of mistreating them in painfully chic shoes i made a pact with them to treat them well. to love them and take care of them. because these are my lifelong companions for the path that still lies ahead.
“If we were meant to stay in one place, we’d have roots instead of feet.” ―Rachel Wolchi
“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.” ―Henry David Thoreau
so i’m kind to them, i still put them in pretty shoes but i won’t compromise their comfort for a fly pair of heels.
i pamper them with scrubs, creams, oils, soaks and massages.
i let them walk free, feel the fresh grass underneath them.
i appreciate my weary companions.
i keep them happy and healthy for whatever crazy journey lies ahead ahead of us.
Until next time my lovelies– remember to be kind and loving to yourselves,
Unconditional Body Beautiful is a self-love series created by Rebequita Rose — “It is a year-long collaboration which I created-slash-founded, and I will be doing this with many other bloggers…We will focus mostly on discussing our bodies more than on fashion, but at the same time we will fuse the two together.”
