Watching my daughter try on swimsuits at Target, and later browsing through a catalog, I realize there is no turning back.
I must accept the fact that I can’t wear those tiny bikinis, or even a two piece, unless it’s a tankini.
I don’t mourn the fact that this phase is over. I kick myself for being so critical and self-conscious thirty some years ago, when I could wear a bikini.
Why do we sabotage ourselves? If I could talk to my younger self, I would tell her- relax!
You’ve got this. You are beautiful.
Your confidence should come from a source deep within you.
Love your body.
Don’t be so hard on yourself.
And above all, enjoy your youth.
