Phew! The first half of 2021 breezed right by us! With much of the focus last year being on safety and equality, I’ll admit I needed to just have some fun, soak up some sun and envision what Lip Lady Fab might grow to become. Here are my top four takeaways from the first half of the year:
* Keep that same @Lizzobeeating energy sis! When you see the slim/fit chicks taking trips and laying out, don’t play small. I learned to embody the spirit of confidence (even if I didn’t feel it at first) and then by not making my legs or body shape a big deal, having fun and living life, that joy became infectious to others and I hardly remembered I was insecure to begin with!
* I realized that self-care and self-love is STILL the vibe, and I get to be super vigilant to make caring for my health and my mobility #1. It’s tough to move around some days with #lymphedema swelling or heavy Lippy legs, but with drinking water, ample rest, swimming and stretching, I can continue to enjoy all life has to give. Time to ease up on the summer drinking though, I can feel it in my legs!
* Rock the crop top, wear the dress, skip the panties, try a jumpsuit, wear flats or tennis instead of heels. Whatever it takes to feel cute, but also be comfortable! (As you can imagine, I’m not a fan of compression too often!)
* Travel more, see the world…don’t wait. I’m not getting any younger, and I’m not sure where my mobility will be in 10 years. Get vaccinated and book the flight! Since January I’ve gone to Vegas, Chicago, Niagara Falls, Ojai, and Antigua! Where to next?!
