Happy Feet

By Sarah Aterrado - November 22, 2023

I have always talked about my shoes. Thought maybe I'd also talk about my feet. Haha. 

Ugh. 🙄 

And here's the thing: I don't like my feet because they're ugly. 

You could say they're a whole new level of hideous. Dry, cracked, calloused, wrinkly, and veiny. 

(Which does not make the topic any better.) 

No amount of moisturizer, color, pedicure, special beauty treatment, or maybe even plastic surgery will make my feet conventionally beautiful. 

I've tried most of it all.

But you know what? 

It took four football championships, five cheerleading competitions, countless dance numbers, hundreds of marathon miles, few sparring exercises, several grueling hikes to the country's highest mountains, a hundred thousand steps in six different countries, and almost four decades of walking, running, jumping, wading, and cycling to get them this way.

Every blister, cut, sprain, strain, bruise, callous, and scar was worth it.

Yes, I don't like my feet.
