I decided it was time to revisit why I believe we women should wear a swimsuit — with some new and old thoughts. I have a lot of friends who do the latter. They go to the pool with their kids, but they only put their feet in the pool.
They sit on the sidelines, too concerned about what they look like and what others will think to embrace the joy of swimming with their kids. Or they go to the beach, but stay under the umbrella instead of running into the ocean.
And it makes me incredibly sad. Because when women stay on the sidelines because of insecurity, we are modeling unhealthy behavior to our children and we are missing out. Your swimsuit does not define you.
That soft tummy you are trying to hide? Has stretched and grown life. Those thighs that have long lost their gap? Gave you the strength to carry that beach ball for 9 months, then walk with life hanging on your hips for years after.
You are a mother.
Put that swimming suit on. When we went to the beach in April, I weighed a few pounds more than I wanted to. But you know what? We laughed and splashed and had the best time. That night, I asked Elias what his favorite part of being at the beach was and you know what he said?
A few weeks after that beach tripI found out I was pregnant. Every week this summer I am a little rounder than the week before.
I still put on my swimming suit every chance I get and go swimming with my kids. And I love being with them. Last weekend, I put on my swimsuit, looked at myself in the mirror and took a deep breath. But it looks more like too many potato chips than a baby.
I wanted to have fun and make memories at that pool.Here are Creative Writing Prompts to help inspire you to write every single day! Use them for journaling, story starters, poetry, and more! I really love the list of writing ideas you have compiled here.
