I never used to wear shorts. Middle school, high school, college-years went by before I finally figured out that wearing shorts is THE reason God gave me this height. I'm 100% nonathletic so it wasn't for sports. It wasn't to help me out at home (the house I grew up in had SLANTED ceilings in my room and bathroom...seriously? I can't count how many times I thunked myself in the head) It definitely wasn't to make my dating life any easier. No...it was to wear shorts, and that is all.
It's not that I was totally opposed to looking attractive as a teenager and college student. I just had the immature idea that sexy meant tight and low-cut. I used to have a pretty decent-sized chest...until after a year of breastfeeding. I mourn the loss of my boobs with every breath I take (I. went. down. two. cup. sizes.) but there is a silver lining. I learned to look elsewhere for sexy-and alas, I found my legs.
