A monster foot!
Yeah, my own!
Today’s page is a drawing of my own foot!
getting over your shock seeing my clumsy foot
let me confess to you that I have been embarrassed, felt humiliated, and, oddly,
complimented too, on its account!
As a young girl, in school, my Mom, for some reason known only to her, used to make me wear boys’ shoes. Seeing my big toes, I used to think there must be something wrong with my feet!
Add hairy fat legs to it too!
I grew up thinking my feet were just too ugly. No dainty girlie shoes for me! Though I loved heels, I could feel comfortable only in flat footwear.
Weirdly, as I grew older, I received few compliments too, though often met with a questioning, eyebrow raised, disbelieving look from me.
It dawned on me gradually ; the shape of my feet does not matter a bit. What matters is I should feel comfortable with my own self.
Adding pictures of a fun outing I had with few friends on an exclusive property, an old palace converted into a luxury resort.
|The approach to the palace is by a special boat.|

Wishing all of you a lovely week!
