Get Out and Play

I have always been one of those people that gets super self conscious... especially in a bathing suit!  I mean I am pretty sure that 99% of women stress and worry about how they look and yes I am definitely one of them!  But I recently discovered something life changing.... it doesn't really matter!  I discovered that I will never have the best (and probably not the worst) body on the beach.  I will never have the perfect bathing suit that hides every single flaw and I will never have body parts that don't jiggle a little.

My girls could really care less if I have a little extra fluff in spots or a few stretch marks.  They won't remember that their mom didn't have rock solid abs or super toned legs.  But they will remember that their mom sat by the edge of the ocean as the waves splashed our face and knocked us over (even though she may have gotten sand in all kinds of unwanted places).  They will remember that their mom liked to play on the boogie board with them and dive for sea shells.  They will remember their mom chasing them in the sand and building sand castles.

So moms, I highly encourage you to find a bathing suit that you love -- whether it be a one piece, swim skirt, or string bikini-- and stop worrying about what everyone else on the beach thinks.  Find something that holds in your lady-parts so you don't have to worry about losing those in public!  And just get our there and PLAY with your kids... Run in the sand.  Jump in the waves.

I promise the moment you realize that nobody expects you to look like a Baywatch lifeguard and that it doesn't matter that you don't, you will not regret it.  You will never regret the moments you put a smile on your kids faces making fun memories with them!
