Even if those modest 1900-style swimsuits remained fashionable, many of us would still feel too uncomfortable to go to the beach. Our weight, body type, and body image can weigh heavier on our hearts than on our hips. While the glory of another gorgeous spring is blooming all round us, many of us feel like its still winter in our souls - bleak, cold, and lonely.
Are you longing for a change? Well, what are you waiting for? Its high time for you to bold yourself over. I mean youre everyone elses champion - your parents, your kids, your spouse, even your favorite co-worker. Now its time for you to show up for yourself. Be bold on your own behalf. While spring is bursting forth, why not declutter your mind and spruce up your morale along with your house?
