One small step

I did a pretty big thing today.

I was getting my stuff together for swimming this morning when I realises I didn’t have a one piece swimming costume clean; and I thought ‘oh , I can’t go’, then it suddenly occurred to me I could wear my bikini. ‘Could I? Why CAN’T I? Of course I can! I’m going to do it.’

So after work, off I went. I did not once try to talk myself out of it. I wore it and I wore it with no f***s given! I wouldn’t say I felt amazing, or liberated in any way, I felt normal, I felt me, which is some how even better.

That is the first time I’ve worn a bikini in public in this country.

It’s not a huge deal, it’s just another step further to complete confidence.

Be brave, stay beautiful.
