I stared at myself naked infront of the mirror. I was vulnerable to me and it’s something I am unfamiliar with. Vulnerability. I vow never to be in such a state with anyone even me but today however, I need to be in touch with my physical body and not just mentally. I wanted to look and looked I did. Every muscle definition, every curve and arch of my calves , back and thighs I looked. I have never looked at myself the way I did today. Every shade of my body from the darkest to the lightest to the various pigments that decorated my skin, I looked. The palest of my feet to the darkest of my arms. The shadows around my lashes and pinks of my lips, I looked. Not to scrutinized myself with a critical eye but more of an introduction to myself. Like this is your body, come and say hi.
