Body Confidence, Not Just For Summer

Body confidence, I think it is something that the majority of us strive to feel/have. A couple of years ago I was talking about being beach body ready and at the time I was worrying about the thought of putting on a bikini, daring to bare the skin that I was sure others would be less than impressed to see. Now I know the way to achieve that sort of readiness is just to take your body to the beach, simple right? For some maybe not.

"The most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence"

You see to be able to put on that two piece, or one piece of you prefer, you really need self-confidence, a feeling of self worth and belonging, the ability to say f*ck it, this is who I am and I love myself regardless of any lumps and bumps because we shouldn't just be able to feel confident in our bodies at summer time, we should all be able to hold onto those feelings all year round. The question is how to find such confidence?

My Sunday Photo 2017 #29

I don't think this picture needs many words. This was from last week, I was just sitting in my garden and happened to notice the patterns that the clouds were forming, a lovely, simple view from a perfect summers day.

What I Read in June

I'm a bit late with my post as we are now half almost half way through July (how did that happen?). But I've finally managed to write up my post for what I read in June and actually even though I had a really slow month for reading I'm still on target to reach my Goodreads target way before the end of the year.
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman

eleanor-oliphant

Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive – but not how to live

Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend.
Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything.

One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world that everyone else seems to take for granted – while searching for the courage to face the dark corners she’s avoided all her life.

Change can be good. Change can be bad. But surely any change is better than… fine?
