Whether they are slim, average, thick, or any other size in the grand and wide scale: I love my thighs. What's not to love about them?

From early stages of life to maybe even 5 minutes ago, body proportions have stalked and keep stalking this body. A feeling that comes and goes, sort of like a ghost.

Like many things, this "ghost" can be hard to overcome, yet, on some other days it cannot even be sensed. A feeling of empowerment grows in me when I have a couple of minutes in front of the mirror and I can actually admire even the smallest detail of my body. Yes, I have those days, and I think they're the best!

Why not love your breasts, belly, waist, hips, derrière and thighs? Of course there's many more parts of your body to admire and appreciate, but from my years of being exposed to body-shaming comments, these are among the main targets, at least nowadays.

The bottom line of all this is: women come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. Curves and lines, scars, and beauty marks, in certain places make each and every body unique, and unique is the beauty of it.

I've learned to love my thighs and currently in the ongoing process of not only admiring, but loving every single part of this body that makes me so unique. Is it tough? Yes, it is a bit tough, but I owe it to myself.

Celebrate and admire your whole self!
