A Bikini Body Does NOT Define You!

As the temperature rises and the days get longer, it's hard not to think about summer – the beach, the pool parties, and yes, the dreaded bikini season.

For many of us, the thought of baring our bodies in swimwear can send waves of anxiety crashing over us. We start to scrutinize every inch, comparing ourselves to airbrushed models, everyone's highlight reels on social media and striving for that "perfect" bikini body.

But here's the thing: there's no such thing as a perfect body. Seriously, let me say it louder for the people in the back – THERE IS NO PERFECT BODY. No matter what the magazines or Instagram influencers tell you, perfection is an illusion, a mirage shimmering on the horizon but forever out of reach.

This is only 1/4 of the photos from a trip I took to Florida. I chose 4 photos out of this to post on social media because I approved of how they looked and felt they were "social media worthy".

So remember, any time you see someone's "perfect" looking post - it is just the best photo from their camera roll. It doesn't show all the outtakes, the not so perfect angels or the rolls and better yet for some the true photo without photoshop!

So why do we torture ourselves with this unattainable ideal? Why do we spend so much time and energy trying to mold our bodies into something they were never meant to be? The truth is, our worth as human beings has nothing to do with the size of our waist or the shape of our thighs. We are so much more than the sum of our physical parts.

Instead of fixating on achieving some arbitrary standard of beauty, let's focus on what really matters – our health, our happiness, and our inner strength. Let's celebrate our bodies for all the incredible things they can do – from dancing under the stars to hiking up mountains to simply giving someone a warm hug.

And you know what? Bikinis come in all shapes and sizes. There's no one-size-fits-all when it comes to swimwear, just like there's no one-size-fits-all when it comes to bodies. So rock that bikini with confidence, knowing that you are unique, you are beautiful, and you are worthy – just as you are. 🫶🏼

If you're struggling to embrace your body this summer, remember that you are not alone. Reach out to friends, family, or a trusted therapist for support. Surround yourself with positive influences – people who lift you up and celebrate your uniqueness.

And above all, be kind to yourself. You are a work of art, a masterpiece in progress. Embrace your self perceived flaws and imperfections – they are what make you truly beautiful. No one besides you knows what your insecurities are - no one can point them out just by looking at you. If you don't believe me, ask someone who you've never talked to about your insecurities.

Let's make this summer one to remember – not for how we look in a bikini, but for how we live our lives with courage, confidence, and a whole lot of love. Because in the end, that's what really matters.
