Were we stoked when we received our TAVIK Swimwear kinis from their new Après Beach collection . . . why yes, yes we were. They’re stupidly perfect & cute in every way possible. Was I particularly stoked to take photos in a small kini in the middle of spring . . . why no, no I was not.
So I present to you photos that literally give me a bit of anxiety. How pathetic is that? Anxiety . . . over bikini photos . . . gimme a break, but it’s true. And I refuse to sit here and right a blog all about how I feel fantastic right meow because frankly I’m still working towards where I wanna be. Am I a heck of a lot closer? Heck yes I am! But I’ve been working my a** off & switched my lifestyle for the better.
You know how everyone preaches about self love on social media, yet still to this day its the hardest thing to do. All we do is look at ourselves and criticize, critique, and compare. THE THREE EVIL C’S.
With social media at our fingertips, we are done for. . .forget it. It’s so easy to open an app & be shown the most beautiful humans on this planet. It ruins relationships with men lusting over other girls and second guessing their own feelings, their own relationships. Thinking that there is better out there, when really you can’t get much better than the physical stunning creature in front of you! To girls constantly comparing themselves to other girls, wishing they could have that body, their skin, their hair, their clothes. JUST MAKE IT STOP. I find myself comparing myself to girls that haven’t even hit puberty yet! Yeahhh, go ahead Brandy Melville model that’s 17 years old, and eats literally whatever you want, whilst “working out” & tweeting at the same time. Weren’t those the glory daze. I’ll just be over here profusely sweating whilst constantly bouncing on my trampoline, and having a kale salad, with my kale smoothie, and kale dessert. Talk to me when you’re 24.
The only thing I can truly tell you is . . . look to Jesus. It’s crazy to think & it truly is hard to wrap our heads around the love He has for us, but its undeniable, and unbelievable!
Focus on yourself & your relationship with Him. Focus on living out a healthy lifestyle, not a starving lifestyle. Stay active. Do what you love & don’t get stuck doing something you hate for the rest of your life. Be patient with love (gosh this is so much easier said than done, trust).
and also, sidenote . . . don’t do any of this for a boy(s). Don’t fake your interests for a boy. Don’t leave school for a boy. Don’t lose weight for a boy. And don’t cry for a boy. The world is full of boys, but there is only one for you.
& wear cute bikinis!
