Confidence is not a destination, it truly is a journey that has bumps along the way.
You don’t become confident over night and even when you work on it, you still have wavering moments of self-consciousness and doubt.
I’ve learned what clothes work for my body type, but summers are often a struggle for me because shorts and swimsuits rarely flatter my imperfections.
I’ve spent years wearing capris or maxis in the heat of Houston summers. Years of sitting on lounge chairs watching my kids play in the pool so I wouldn’t have to take off my swim cover. Years searching for the right swimsuit that camouflages the dimples and bumps.
I have never worn a 2 piece swimsuit that wasn’t a tankini. Until this year.
I decided to…
Stop sitting on the sidelines
Stop focusing on what others think.
Stop being ashamed of the areas that make me insecure.
Here I am. Imperfections and all.
