Need help going to lake!!

Good morning everyone!! Totally freaking out about going to this beautiful lake! My mom and I are going to a secluded part of the lake where nobody is thankfully! Not to many ppl there on a Wednesday. This lake is so Sandy (red sand). Clear water to float on mattresses. I need to just focus on nature and not on how bad I look in a suit!! The propranylolol helps a lot thank goodness!! Just going to say prayers before we go and just enjoy the day!😎😀 Hope you all had a wonderful memorial day weekend!!!

Thank you Olivia! Pics don't do it justice! Your feet just melt into the deep sand its like nothing like I've ever felt in my life. The water is about 80 degrees and 90 outside so its beyond perfect temp. Hoping to get a great tan too. Like you said its just the beauty of the area should be relaxing! Thanks for,your very kind and helpful advice!

You need to try and be a bit more accepting of yourself and stop being ashamed of who you are. Fat or thin, people laugh, so what. Your pride is getting in the way of you enjoying your life. It doesn't matter what people say you'll still be paranoid and embarrassed, but, at least try and say, i am what I am.

Or

Lose weight and be superficially what is expected of you.

Oh exactly! I always tell myself that. That I'm letting others get to me and yea ruining my life. Just like you said. It sounds ridiculous. I'm pretty relaxed right now but getting there ill hopefully not be so anxious. I'm just telling myself look at the beauty and not how I look. It shouldn't matter cause we are going to secluded area too which,is nice!! Thanks for,your advice!!

Good Morning lovedogs. Oh the scene is perfect to use for visualization and breathing. As I look at the picture, I take a few moments to breathe, feel the sand under my feet and walk into the warm water. How relaxing, how calming, how serene. :)

Thank you for that short respite Enjoy your day, say "hi" to your mom xx

Hiya agora1!! Yes its just,like you said. The red sand is deep and squishy under your feet. It feels so wonderful. The water is warm like bathtub warm. 95 degrees out this afternoon! So the water will be a little bit cooler to jump into. Thank you for that awesome message! Hugs!! Have a beautiful day today. 😎😎💝🙏
