Rock What Ya Got!
I have always been a little overweight, today probably more than usual. But, as of recently, I’ve come to the conclusion that I don’t really want to hide behind that. I want to wear what I want, when I want no matter how I look in it. I’m still working on that to this day, but eventually I hope to get to the point where I’m 100% confident in rocking my two piece swimsuit in public and not just for my closest friends.
I’m slowly finding out that I do still like how I look no matter what my size. In the age of crop tops and high-waist everything, I still want to wear that stuff. I want to wear it without spanks and not be judged. Well, I’m not going to wait around for others to stop judging. I’m going to wear what I want when I want and hopefully show other women that they should too.
Or what about this baggy clothing trend? I always thought it would make me look like a sack of potatoes being the size that I am, but I DON’T CARE. I am all about being comfortable. If YOU don’t like it, YOU don’t like it. Since when did my world start revolving around others? OH, wait! It always has. It’s time to make the change for me. I am changing things around to make ME happy. That is what being BRAVE is all about in the grand scheme of things, right?
Does anybody else reading this blog have a pile of clothes in their closet or on their bedroom floor right now? Is it there because when you wake up in the morning, you put on ten outfits before you find one that is:
1. Appropriate for work
2. Looks good on you
3. Is comfortable
Well, mine has been piling up for about a week now because I just don’t have the time to hang those clean clothes back up. I’ve been trying this whole “I’m not doing anything I don’t want to do because the rest of my life is so incredibly exhausting” thing lately. So, that’s where they will stay until I’m sick of looking at them. But, the one thing I want to focus on in this blog is the second thing listed up above.
In all actuality, who really cares what it looks like?! If you feel bomb in it, wear it! Go with that first outfit that you envisioned yourself wearing the night before. Ya know, the Pinterest-worthy outfit. Have you ever tried putting something on and not even looking in the mirror before leaving the house? Do it sometime. See how amazing you feel walking out of the house in EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT TO WEAR. That is what is BRAVE to me.
