I Am My Cheeks

nicole at my teacups in peony has an amazing post today. i urge you all to post a comment there today.
she shared what her favorite part of her body was.
and her least favorite.
and then asked for yours.
she enabled anonymous comments if you don't want the whole world to know you hate your thighs.
but really?
tell them.
because as soon as you do, you'll be one step closer to realizing how silly it is that you hate any part of yourself at all.
like maya angelou said,
if you don't like something, change it. if you can't change it, change your attitude.
i will share with you my favorite part of myself:

my favorite thing about myself are my cheeks. yes, they're chipmunk-y, but they're me. they're happy and blush easily and show my emotions like a billboard. they're also soft and rounded and feminine. when i was younger, i wanted angular, sharp cheekbones, but now i know that my cheeks are the best part of me. i'm not angular and sharp. i'm happy, soft, fun, affectionate. i am my cheeks.
