I hope you are all well and have had a good week and will have a relaxing weekend.
Today I am going to be talking about the summer body. I was inspired to write this post after I read Harriet’s blog post about “it’s ok not to be a size 8“. Through this post I loved the message that it’s alright to be you and I would recommend reading it as it has a amazing message that I think everyone should see.
So my version is about summer and having the perfect summer body. I feel that there is no such thing. The requirements for a summer body is that it’s hot weather or as hot as it can be in Britain haha and you have a body, it may sound stupid but really everyone has a summer body. In this day the media tries to put strict images of what people need to look like and it can really make people feel self conscious about what they need to look like. Don’t try and be like someone else everyone is unique and we should celebrate everyone and treat them equally whatever they look.
We need to love ourselves and love each other. We need to embrace who we are and even if you don’t feel confident go out in whatever you want. It’s ok not to be really skinny because you are perfect the way that you are. Don’t change for anyone.
I believe that we are all beautiful. Why are skinny people classed as beautiful when others are equally as beautiful? Society has placed a great importance of being the right shape and size but I really don’t agree. The summer body we see plastered over magazines isn’t realistic and makes me and many other people feel worthless if we don’t look like it. But please don’t feel worthless. I have tried to teach myself and I am still getting there that I can wear whatever I want and I am beautiful. For example I don’t like the way my legs look but I chose to go out in shorts and actually it helped me get a bit more confident in my own skin.
I hope this post might be helpful. Leave your thought and feelings below and I will be sure to respond to you. If you take one thing from this post let it be this… You are beautiful no matter what anyone else says, you have a great summer body !!!
See you soon for another blog post.
