Alrighty. Let's just get this out of the way first thing. I. Am. Not. Putting. On. A. Swimsuit. Self confidence and being comfortable with who you are is one thing. Easy to start thinking that way when you're in a t-shirt and jeans. NOT EASY when contemplating putting on a swimsuit and heading to the neighbor's to swim in the pool.
I'll take the kiddos over there this afternoon because they just don't get to get in the water as often as they'd like. Here's where I admit that has a lot to do with neither mommy or daddy wanting to put on a swimsuit if at all possible. Oh, we put on the swimsuits and played all day in the water fun area with them when we stayed at the Nick Hotel last fall. . .and we had a blast, all four of us! Ahem, however, I don't expect I'll ever again run across any of those people who were staying at the Nick Hotel in Orlando last November-- easier to just say the heck with it and go have fun!
Oh, I could talk all day about why we shouldn't let ourselves worry about things like this, about the importance of accepting yourself the way you are, about the quandaries of enough sun versus too much sun, about being comfortable in your skin, about swimsuit design, about my very few scuba diving adventures.
Eh-eh. Just. Ain't. Gonna. Happen. Today.
I am now going to take my chickensh** self to the torch for a wee bit. Yes, the flame is solace for what ails ya!
