View Full Version : my weird but exciting NSV

I have always hated my fingers/hands. I have short stumpy sausage fingers with dimples at the top knuckles like a baby. It really bothers me and I've even said it would be a waste for me to ever wear a wedding ring cuz my hands are so not cute.

Anyway ... last week a friend took a pic of me at a bday party and my hands looked downright slender. It might be a silly thing to be excited about, but it's something that's bothered me for years. I'll try to post pics soon.

:lol: This cracks me up but I totally know what you mean! I feel the same way about my toes. I hope they slim down a bit!

Congrats on finally liking your fingers :D

I get it! My hands can make me a little self-conscious, and there is nothing I can really do about them, so there will not be a NS hand V for me! LOL I have what I call "old lady" hands and have for a long time. They look about 20 years older than the rest of me. Once, on a third date with someone who didn't know about my hand issues, he was holding my hand across a table in a coffee-shop and said "You have the most beautiful hands. I could look at them all day." I told him they weren't beautiful, they were old lady hands. He said that he could see how I felt that way, but that he thought they gave them character. He was an odd one....

I dont think they were too bad before, but they do look much more slender!

This was definitely a NSV I remember having, so i can relate :)

Congrats and keep noticing the wins wherever they come.
