Hello my loves happy Friday I love you!!!
I hope you're having a good day, and I just want you to know that you mean the WORLD to me. I know I say it all the time, but thank you for following me 😭Thank you for supporting me as well as all the people featured in the #MyBodyStory series. You've helped to make DoTheHotpants such a safe and welcoming space, and I don't have words to tell you how much I appreciate each and every one of you.
For those of you who haven't been following me that long, when I first started growing my leg hair out I had a VERY difficult time accepting my hairy body. But I'm so happy I stuck it out!!
Although I definitely couldn't have done it without your love, this community, your DM's, your comments, or your hairy legged pics that so many of you sent me in solidarity 😍
Getting to this place of acceptance was a long time coming, and full transparency I still have days where exposing my legs feels really hard. But I'm light years away from when I started. And you know what? it's all because of you. So thank you. My smile in this pic is because of you. And the tears in my eyes as I type this? They're because of you, too.
I hope every single person reading this is having a good Friday. And remember, if you can't love your body right now...if loving yourself feels too hard...at least be neutral with yourself.
Because maybe we can never really get to full body love in this messed up world, but we can at least try to get to body neutrality.
Free your mind from the bullshit society has put into it, and make room for the real stuff...like love, learning and life ❤️
Happy Friday, please take care of yourselves tonight. I love you 🌸
(and yes I'm wearing pants in this pic lol...I'm wearing Hotpants!)
