New Year’s Resolution #3: Wear a bikini
This one scares me a little bit right now. Especially this close to Valentine’s Day when there’s a whole aisle of candy in bright red boxes tempting me at the grocery store. It’s hard to resist. But I think I need to do more things that scare me so I’m actually kind of excited about this resolution. It’s going to be a challenge, that’s for sure, but I think it’s a good idea to force myself out of my comfort zone. At least for a little while. The good news is that this is a resolution with a specific end date in mind. I am going to Hawaii in June with some friends and I am determined to feel comfortable enough to wear a bikini on the beach (and snorkeling, of course) while I’m there. One of my friends is renting an amazing house on the beach on Maui so I’m looking forward to rolling out of bed, throwing on a bathing suit, and going swimming in the morning. It’s going to be amazing! And it’ll be the perfect reason to finally cut the tags off the bikinis I bought last year. It’s terrible that they’ve been sitting unworn in a drawer for so long, especially when I went to so much trouble to get them. I’m not sure what I was thinking at the time, but at least the purchases will pay off in June. The challenge will be making it through the time between now and then! The road to bikini-wearing starts now!
