People Aren't Thinking About You As Much As You Think They Are.

Friday, May 25, 2012

How's that for a title? Ha! Now that I've got your attention....tee hee

Every summer, I go through this crap mindset: "Everyone's looking at my stomach and my cellulite thighs and my big ole Fred Flintstone feet!"

And every summer, Biff (hubbie) says the same thing:

"People aren't thinking about you as much as you think they are."

Of course I come back with the whole, "But I'm thinking about them! Look at her... she's just about perfect! If I'm thinking about them, then you know darn well they are thinking about me!"

Then it hits me: We are a selfish people. Am I really that Self-Involved that I'm going to miss out on a great summer at the beach? Can't I forget what others are thinking for just a day? Cuz really, they ain't sitting around for hours looking at my lack-of-abs and jiggly caboose. Well, maybe for a moment they are. But pretty soon, they move on.

This Memorial Day weekend, I'm slappin' on my new Kathy Ireland plunge neckline bathing suit (great lil $5.00 find at my local thrift store), grabbing the kids and Biff, and we are going to ENJOY!

Life's too short, ya know?

What do you think? Do you obsess with this, too? How do you deal with these feelings? Have you missed out on great fun because you worry about what people think?

    Love your blog!! I agree with your hubby, but women especially, are overly concerned about their appearance. We need to be happy with ourselves and think more about helping other people and being NICE to other people!!

    Are you looking at my cellulite and Fred Flinstone feet? Because if you are, I don't care. Happily married for 22 years and I'm not out to impress anyone or to distract anyone else's Biff.

    Listen to your Biff.
