The year is 2019. Megan Thee Stallion has just graced the world with her hit single “Hot Girl Summer,” and nothing would ever be the same. Since its release, “Hot Girl Summer” has become an anthem that encourages women to live their very best lives all summer long.
But here’s the thing: Hot Girl Summer isn’t just a season. It’s a lifestyle. Because Hot Girl Summer is about respecting yourself. Hot Girl Summer is about putting yourself first. Hot Girl Summer means you take no shit and give no fucks and do what makes you happy, regardless of what society or anyone else thinks about it. And there’s no reason to wait for the summer months to live your life like that.
Please stop waiting for June to live the way you want to live. Stop postponing the best days of your week for Friday and Saturday night. Quit thinking you need to lose weight or become someone you’re not in order to be loved.
The truth of the matter is that confidence is everything. And even if you aren’t feeling yourself at the moment, that doesn’t mean you can’t learn how to do so. You need to work with what you’ve got and make the most of who you are. Real confidence is born from practicing, taking risks, and putting yourself out there. Real confidence is not being afraid to hear “no” because you know your value (even if someone else doesn’t see it).
Life is so damn short and it’s happening right here, right now. So, go out and fuck it all up. Do it for the plot. Trust yourself and go for what you want and believe you deserve it. And, most importantly, have some fun. We’re only on earth for so long. Enjoy it.
