Whenever I wear skirts or shorts, I always wonder if people notice the scars on my knees. I feel like they're really noticeable. Aren't they? It probably doesn't help that I have a few new massive bruises in those same areas. I got the biggest scar almost 3 years ago when I fell on a trail. The others came later on another trail. Apparently I fall and scrape my knees once every year. A few weeks ago, I gained another little scar and a few bruises.
This may sound strange, but I actually kind of like them. They remind me that I kept running on the trail even while I had throbbing pain and blood dripping down my legs. It's kind of a gruesome metaphor for the troubles in your life, but hear me out: If life tries to pull you down or knock you down, get right up and keep running.
In other news, I want to share some vacation photos with you guys. BUT...I have yet to upload them onto my laptop. I went to Yosemite for the first time this past week. I had the best time! I'm actually still sore from all the hiking we did. More on my trip on my next post.
