Growing up, more specifically in my adolescent years I did not like my legs😭, I have fat legs the type my secondary school mates call “Yam Legs” “hehehe“, I literally used to get teased (teased and pissed too at that😭). Fast track to university days, my social circle widened,new environment more people e.t.c. I saw slim , nice , great legs “Oh! how i hated my fat yam legs 🙄. When conversations tilted towards body structure, trust me I always had to list my preference without being asked, I would tell you I love my hands ” I meaaan I am absolutely in love with my hands” but my legs no oh! “mba!, ko jo!“.

Fast track to maybe 300 level or 400 level in the university I started getting comfortable with my legs but “in love?” naah! that was a different journey entirely. Most of the time I am on casuals (tees and jean) and even before the lockdown I rarely expose my legs when going to work but on the days I do, a colleague literally calls me hot legs🤣 and queries why I do not wear skirt or dresses more often😋.

Jean and flats makes the world a better place☺️. Image source:

On the 8th of May, 2020 at about 1.00am, I looked at my legs and I fell in love with them, then I remembered and reflected on the journey of 12 years it took to get here and I became super thankful. Unfortunately these legs are flawed and scarred I mean badly scarred 😃 but hey! they are hot and beautiful still and they are a blessing.

Absolutely in love with this beauty💙

What part of your body are you not comfy with, got any?. From a deeper perspective, what part of your life are you guarding jealously in a pair of jean trousers that you have not grown to accept as part of you and your story, maybe just maybe you should take some time to look at that part again and come through a process of acceptance and gratitude and in the long run maybe love.

I love this shot in particular what do you think?

  1. Amazing dear.
    Many times we bother ourselves with the things we cant change, and thereby loose sight of the good things we have beyond that one subtle thing…
    Whether it will look nice or otherwise you might just need to change your point of view.
    I remember I didn’t usually like my long lone face. In fact i didn’t like taking pics with my straight face facing the camera and it haunted me for sooo lon that yo wouldn’t we me risking pictures I public or group pics or a selfie with someone outside 😢. But after a while i grew in the understanding of self acceptance and ‘seeing uniqueness out of what other will tag seemingly “bad”.
    Hence, I changed my view by taking side shots and the smile comes out so amazingly, exquisite, alluring an infectious i must say 😆.
    Now, I love both, and surprisingly everyone does.
    So i would add that “all we need to do is *Change perspective*, and we would think differently, see differently and feel differently..

    Greater strides sea Tolu 💕

    1. So I don’t know whether to laugh or be teary 😂. It’s interesting to know that you went through a process like this because the Seun I know takes pictures liiiikeèee yooo in one day the least is 10 shots I mean look at how far the journey of self acceptance has brought you and finally to a destination of love. You clearly get this “Perspective” is all we need and is what I’m trying to build here too. Thank you darling 💜💗
