I was born in the wrong ERA!!!
You guessed it... SUMMER IS HERE!!! The vacation is in a few days to Newport Beach and
the dilemma is... I need to buy a BATHING SUIT!!
I don't know what it is about BATHING SUITS.. I swear I am cursed when trying to find
just the right one.. I know some evil thing is lurking behind me when I go to try it
on in the dressing room.. You know what I mean.. all I can hear is.. "YOU LOOK AWFUL"
"There is no way "other" people can see you looking like this" Well- you get the drift..
It is bad enough I am not a good decision maker so it takes me even longer to find something.. I went to department stores, specialty shops etc.. for "2" days...
I came home empty handed.. Depressed and feeling full of pity.. :(
I think even at my thinnest I still was never satisfied with myself.. What is up with that?!
Oh, and who designs these bathing suits anyway? Do they live on a remote Island
somewhere where no one gives a hoot to what they look like and they all wear the
same thing?! Are they all models with no hips or curves?!
Do you know what it is like being only 5'2 and short? The bathing suit is either too long waisted or hikes up your gleutous maximus..Jeez!! and do they believe in modesty?
everything is all out there!!!
I am at the wonderful age where things are starting to shift, sage, bag, etc.. I do
exercise at least 4-5 days a week... I also don't want to spend my whole clothing expense.. I do need other things too... I guess I was born in the wrong era.. I mean look at those bathing suits in the picture above.. They all looked ridiculous so who cares..(They look like they are having fun !) Maybe it is just me..I need to get over myself and accept all my imperfections and just forget it.. Is PRIDE bad?! I know I am not alone in this..
I don't think MEN go through this?! Well- I sure don't want to be the only one on the beach in pants and a t-shirt.. but, who knows maybe I'll start a new FAD!!!
