istock_000003913289.jpgThe world’s most expensive bikini is pure diamonds and platinum. At $30 million, I don’t think anyone is wearing it near the water unless surrounded by bodyguards.

I was thinking about bikinis in the shower today. I was wondering how many women torment themselves by trying to create the right kind of body to put into a handful of fabric about the size of a washcloth?

How many women have sized themselves up against a bikini in the dressing room, only to go home dejected and feeling excluded from the beach scene?

For anyone who fell short of this superficial token of beauty and social approval, here’s some great news for you.

1. Love your body, love yourself! For starters, it’s the only home your spirit has.

  • Take good care of your body.
  • Own what’s working for you.
  • Make the best out of your limitations.
  • No one can possibly care as much about you as you need to.

2. Know your mind, know yourself! Never stop learning.

  • Keep reaching inside of yourself and finding out what excites you, what you’re passionate about, what you want to do with your life.
  • Then go and do it!
  • No one understands your heart’s desire like you do.

3. Honor your spirit, honor yourself! All of this is going to pass – the good and the not so good.

  • Savor the good times and be patient with the challenges.
  • Remember your spiritual origins and the priceless value of your being.
  • Get in touch with your Divine Source and ask for clear guidance to know what you came here to do for this planet.
  • You will be the happiest and the most radiant living your life purpose.

Go ahead and play in the sand! Splash around in the water! Feel comfortable in your own skin! You can’t possibly get it wrong.

Use these three strategies to invest in yourself! You’re already worth more than the world’s most expensive bikini.
