“By showing my body hair I hope to make an impact,” Mikenas captioned a recent pic that highlights the hair on her legs. “Stop listening to the voices that told us our whole life that we need to look a certain way to be valued, respected, attractive or healthy. It’s up to every person to decide what makes them feel most comfortable within themselves.”
In one post that shows Morgan’s naturally hairy legs, the fitness blogger writes: “Imagine if everyone just decided that today was the day they loved themselves and embraced every part of themselves”.
“Accepting and loving your body and your “flaws” because you know they are what makes you who you are. If you are focused on being true to yourself in every moment, you are less concerned what others think, which will lead to peace of mind. When you have nothing to hide and you can freely be yourself, there is a profound peace/confidence you will emanate to the world that will inspire others.”
In another post, Morgan has taken a snap of her unshaven underarm hair, writing that it’s “just nice to embrace the natural beauty that you are…the beauty that’s on the inside AND the outside”.
“What is beauty anyway? To me…it’s to be beautiful before someone else told you what beautiful is supposed to be… Just as you are, you are beautiful.”
