If there’s one part of my body that gets neglected the most, it would be my feet. I’m one of those girls who weren’t born with a pair of beautiful feet. To be honest, I have wide and ugly feet. It’s the kind that could really turn off a person at first sight. I have always believed that I have ugly feet and that’s the reason why I don’t take extra effort to care for them.
Actually, my “foot care” is limited to washing my feet to keep them clean and smell-free. Yes, it’s as basic as that. I don’t even get a regular pedicure. That should give you an idea of how unattractive my feet are (pedicured or not) and how I get conscious every time I’m showing off my feet (my toes, specifically) or just a glimpse of it in public.
While getting new nail polishes for my mom at Watsons last week, I saw one of the shelves there devoted entirely to foot care. It has everything from colorful nail polishes to DIY foot spa products. I spent a few minutes there just staring at the various foot care products on display. I imagined myself using them at the comforts of my home and suddenly felt an urge to pamper my feet. I also realized how I have neglected my feet all these years and that it shouldn’t be the case anymore.
In short, I had a change of heart. Now I feel so inspired to take care of my feet and give it the attention it deserves. Yes, that’s even if I have wide and ugly feet.
