A positive body image enables me to have fun in the sun.
Summer is a time to go outside and soak up the beauty of nature. After a long winter, I am determined to enjoy my summer vacation time. Nothing gets in my way of having a good time in the sun.
I make a mental inventory of all the things I love about my body. I start with my awesome smile. My smile radiates the confidence I feel in my soul. My confidence is what fuels my body positive image.
When I am out in the sun, I am only concerned with having a good time. The shape of my body is the farthest thought from my mind. The beach is not from a body-judging contest; it is a place to relax and recharge.
In front of the mirror, I look myself in the eye and speak words of affirmation to myself. I am beautiful from the inside out. The beauty inside me radiates through my face and overtakes my appearance.
I am relaxed about my looks. Time spent in the sun is mean to be fun without thinking about my body. Everyone has something they dislike about their body. I refrain from being critical of others the same way that I want them to concentrate on the time we spend together, making memories.
Today, I choose to relax about my looks by accepting my body the way it is and dressing it with confidence. I focus on having fun and I shut out any thoughts of comparison.
