15/365 – ” What’s something you do regularly that half of the world has never done? ”
Ok, so this is a funny one.
Yesterday, as I geared up for Burning Man, with the intention of exploring my relationship with myself (my mind, my heart, my body, and how I relate to the world) – I thought it would be interesting to change something to my physical being to embody the spirit of exploring novelty.
Alone, I decided it would be fun to explore… shaving my legs.
The experience lasted a good hour and a half and ended with a lot of me laughing at myself – with multiple cut wounds, a very patchy shave, and a newfound respect for shaved legs.
I became aware of hairs I didn’t know I had (like behind my knees?!) and curves in my muscles I never appreciated.
Who knew novelty could be found in something so familiar?
