We're already into the sixth month of the year and that means summer break for some of us!
Here are three things I try to remind myself each summer.
1. No one is going to remember what you look like in that swimsuit.
Life is short, wear that bikini or speedo or whatever you want to (APPLY SUNSCREEN PEOPLE!) and jump in the water. Don't waste your life on a pool chair hiding because you're uncomfortable with your size.
If you're hiding from the sun, or just don't like the pool (I feel y'all) then still lounge proud!
2. Set goals, hold yourself to (some of) them.
The summer is long and if you plan to just veg for three months you're going to regret it. Set some kind of goal and work on it throughout the summer. Maybe you want to read more, be more active, study a certain subject, or just hang out with your family more. Give yourself a reason to get out of bed before noon every day.
Take advantage of this time to grow yourself.
3. People make mistakes all summer long.
With more free time or just a change in schedule, your relationships can be mixed up a bit. Maybe you go to a lot of dumb parties, maybe you can't see your crush, maybe you see your friends TOO often and you end up fighting.
Just remember that summer is an odd time for everyone and that any fight you might have during that time should heal before autumn. Don't hold summer grudges.
