Day 5 - A Spontaneous Moment in Your Life That Turned Out To Be Fantastic!!! #26DayBlogChallenge
The funny thing about this post is that I KNOW it is going to cause SO much controversy!
But you know what? I really couldn't care less.
Just a week ago, I went on a hike... topless.
It wasn't on a nudist beach, nor was it a busy one.
I wasn't showing off my body or flaunting - I was just being comfortable in my own skin and when people came past me I'd scurry to find my shawl and cover up for the first ten minutes... but then I got used to it.
It was fun! Liberating.Breezy.. Free!
At the end of the day, they are just breasts. They are exactly the same as what men have, just with some extra chunks of fat inside.... and it felt so amazing to feel the sun on those under-exposed spots, feel the wind brushing against them. It didn't feel dirty or wrong. It felt happy!
The point of this post was to express a time in my life that I felt spontaneous, free and wild. This was that for me.
Yes. at first I was petrified of people seeing me topless. But who actually CARES!? Is it anything that anybody hasn't seen before? No. No it isn't. And it wasn't done in a slutty way. It was just being confident and open.
In Europe, this sort of thing is considered natural. Here in South Africa or even in places such as England and America, we seem to be SO much more close-minded to this sort of behaviour and I find that really sad. Admittedly, I was exactly the same until recently. I felt like my body was this sort of sacred temple (well, it still is!) but now I've had my horizons broadened. GO to Europe... hell, if you're in South Africa then go to the nudist beach in Cape Town! I didn't even know that there was one THERE!! It's amazing.
People of all shapes and sizes go to the beach and just relax. You don't need to worry about stretch marks or cellulite.
Of course it is daunting at first to remove your top and / or more but within moments you realise this: It's OK!!!
I'm planning on going to nudist beaches and just living life wild and free, gaining self-confidence and feeling more comfortable in my own skin far more often now.
It felt truly magical and beautiful.... and of course naughty considering it wasn't a nudist beach! It was fantastic.
I wouldn't post the actual unedited photos from the day because to be honest that isn't what this post is about. I don't want naked photos floating around the internet - this is just to show you how free and above all: 'HAPPY!' I was. Also to hopefully show you that the world and these awesome things open to us aren't that scary at all!
I had an amazing day.... and plan to have many, many more.
Fantastic...? Beyond words can describe.
