Bikini adventures continued
The story of me and my bikini (picture included) appeared in the Sunday, May 24, 2009 edition of the Atlanta Journal Constitution in the article: A love hate relationship is in season. I’d like to give a special thank you to Helena Olivera, for including me in the article. The article is great (if I do say so myself). Helena interviews two other women about their relationships with their bathing suits, and includes some interesting facts and great expert advice. Definitely worth the read.
She included two rather shocking statistics:
- Almost one in five women said they would rather walk on hot coals than wear a swimsuit.
- Half of the women surveyed said they’d turned down invitations for pool parties and other summertime get-togethers because they didn’t want to be seen in a suit.
Too many of us are staying at home, living less than a full life rather than fully engaging with the life we have. Wear what you want to wear–if you hate bathing suits, don’t wear one–but, please, don’t miss an opportunity to be with friends or to enjoy a new adventure because you think that your body isn’t “good enough.”
