I have a new neighbor. I don’t know him outside of just saying hello, but he impresses me.
The man has 1 leg (I have no idea how he lost the other one) and he drove a Jeep Wrangler, until he replaced that with a new truck, rides a bike, and takes walks with his young daughter.
Earlier this Spring, I was worried about wearing open toed shoes, because I have no toenail on my right big toe.
“Who would wear open toed shoes with feet like this?” I often asked myself – until I saw my 1 legged neighbor in shorts.
Then I realized how much I was sweatin’ a friggen’ toe nail – and this man didn’t have a LEG. And wore shorts.
It made me realize how ridiculous my thought was.
Fast forward…I am hanging out with my friend and she looked down at my feet and said “I can’t believe you are wearing flip flops with that toe…”
I responded “My neighbor has one leg and wears shorts. If he can do that – I can do this.”
(Little did I know that my friend thought she had ugly feet, so SHE didn’t wear open toed shoes!)
This 1 legged man started a whole beauty revolution. The best beauty tip is this: Be yourself, with confidence.
You are Loved~
