My Feet

May 14, 2010

Journaling Reads:
They say life is in the details.

I don’t often take good care of my body. I don’t put on sunscreen when I go out. I don’t put moisturizer before bed. I often don’t take my makeup off before I go to sleep. Yet, despite my neglect, my body is really good to me. It tends to put up with all the abuse I give it. My feet carry my ever-fluctuating body without complaining.

A few months ago, I decided it was time to give a little back. So, for the first time in ten years, I went to get a pedicure. I wanted to pamper my feet a little bit. And pamper, I did.

What I didn’t expect was how much better the whole thing would make me feel. Seeing the little bit of color on my toenails, feeling the smooth skin, and just getting a quiet hour to myself made me happier than I would have imagined.

I don’t wear open-toed shoes very often so I am the only one who gets to see these toes but I don’t mind. They are for me, really. And each time I catch a glimpse, I smile.
