The Bathing Beauty

009

I recently supported a friend though one of the most harrowing experiences women face…I went bathing suit shopping with her.

Even though she’s slim, trim and attractive (and every suit looked great on her), she had nothing but negative comments to make about her body.

It made me wonder why we’re so self-critical.

I resolved to appreciate my body for all the wonderful things it can do, rather than to focus on my trouble spots.

Newly confident, I got rid of my tired old one-piece (I always feel like a lady wrestler when I wear it), and bought myself a stylish tankini.

Beach and poolside, here I come!

I snapped a photo in the fitting room but there’s no way in hell I’m sharing it!
