5 Lessons I Learned While Diving Into Self-Love

July 18th, 2018

Friends, I’ve spent more time by and in a pool in the past two months than I have my entire life, which is a pretty big deal in my world, considering I’ve lived the bulk of my life avoiding pools and water at all costs. When invitations would roll in for pool hangs, boat days, or weekend getaways where pool time was inevitable, I immediately found a way to get out of going. “I forgot to pack my suit,” “I don’t feel like getting in today,” “I can only come for a little bit, so I’ll sit by the pool and chat,” were the most common excuses. Frankly, I hated how I looked in a suit and cared far too much about what others might think of what I looked like, that I ultimately missed out on a lot of fun.

    What a beautiful post. Good for you for putting that suit on and enjoying yourself! So thrilled that the Pisces in you was able to move forward in spite the fear and enjoy the water. Congrats on your new beginning and wishing you many wonderful moments ahead.
