Embracing the 'Whatever'

If you follow me on instagram or facebook, you know that I was away last week with my family and my in-laws in St. Maarten. It was an awesome week. Depsite one day of rain, the weather was great, the company was even better, and quality time was spent.

With the approach of summer, or should I say swimsuit season, comes all sorts of anxieties for women. Do my boobs look weird in the suit, does my butt look big, I have too much cellulite, I shouldn't be seen in public in a bathing suit, and the list goes on and on.

I am guilty of thinking just about every single one of those, without a doubt. I'd like to meet the woman who doesn't have insecurities!

Recently there have been so many articles, news segments, etc. about women embracing themselves in their bathing suits- a sort of call to action to focus on playing with your children, being present, enjoying the moment, and not worrying what you look like in your bathing suit. Easier said than done, right?

Chances are, I am not looking at you thinking "yikes she should not be wearing that." It's more like "I wonder if my cellulite is really noticeable," "I wonder how droopy my boobs look in this suit?" "Wow I could start a fire with how much my thighs are rubbing together!"

Something changed though this past week when I was away- I really made it a point to try and not worry about what I looked like in my bathing suit and just be. It was kind of refreshing to say the least!

So seriously, stop worrying about what you look like in your bathing suit. I'm not looking at you with judging eyes. Be there, be present, enjoy yourself. If I can post pictures of myself in a bathing on the freakin' internet, you can certainly hang out at the pool!

  2. A great message! I think every woman - no matter what their size - has body insecurities. Believe it or not I have cellulite and stretch marks (and I haven't even had kids!). But we are always more critical of ourselves than other people.
    Your swimsuit style is on point! You look so chic!
