…frustration with those body parts I can not change.
20‘s thought: Why are my knees to nubbly and broad?
30’s thought: I’ve come a long way since getting gravel stuck in my knee riding my bike around the farm. These knees have run a marathon, danced in front of thousands of people, and carried me from through the Andes and the Himalayas.
20’s thought: Damn my stubby little fingers with broad knuckles that turn into little sausages in the summer.
30’s thought: Well, at least my knees and knuckles match. Long, delicate fingers have no advantage in planting a garden over compact little ones. My hands remind me of my mother and my maternal grandmother and for them I am grateful.
20’s thought: Cute shoes don’t usually come in w i d e.
30’s thought: The wider the better to balance on and who gives a shit about feet anyway?
20’s thought: I seriously dislike my profile.
30’s thought: I look like my big sister in pictures of my profile and she’s beautiful! 🙂
Other body parts I can’t change

- stretch marks on my hips
- dark circles under my eyes no matter how rested I am
- my proportions; I am thick, muscular, and compact throughout my whole body
