“I used to hate my “fat” legs (i come from kate moss era so her legs were standard and my legs were already considered obese hahaha) and wished they were thin legs. Now all I pray for are strong legs. I dont care how they look for as long as they take me to places where I want to go. The shift in your forties can both be sobering and stress-free at the same time and I love it. I love how freeing it is to age and think of what others think less than what we actually want and need,” Rica said.
