We’ve all got it. The guilty pleasure that makes us feel, WOMAN! It’s a new lipstick, it’s a tight pair of jeans, it’s just plain being naked (if you are the naked one, more power too ya), it’s whatever makes you feel sexy and amazing. Sometimes it’s a splurge on an expensive dress, or a drugstore lip gloss, but regardless of the price, it makes you feel it. If you haven’t found it yet, I urge you to explore the possibilities. Doors will open.
I may have a giant drawer full of lingerie, but I’m not going to lie, that’s not what gets me going (Sean would speak otherwise). To be frank, there are a few items in said drawer that I’m not even sure how to put on, and forget taking it off, there is no way me or Sean would be able to climb that mountain. With that said, I do love a good Vic’s spree, but thats not always what I’m looking for. What really tickles me is pair of shaved legs, a glowing tan and a gigantic pair of sunglasses. Essentially, all things that are summer, are what makes me feel sexy. My hair is blonder, my skin is browner, and face is clearer. Sexy to me is sandy feet, in a pair of cut-offs and an oversized sweatshirt. When my hair is a mess but somehow looks purposely tousled, there isn’t any makeup on my face, mysteriously hidden by a pair of sunnies, and maybe even a pop of red on my lip. This look might not be working for everyone, but that isn’t my point. It works for me. When I’m ” feelin’ myself”, the possibilities are endless.
Everyone always talks about empowering women, well lets just empower ourselves to start. Do the things that make you feel good. You don’t have to make a million dollars a year, or run your own business, or start a charity (but how cool would that be!) to be successful. All you need to do is know how to put a smile on your own face. I’ve said it to so many of my friends, happiness starts with ourselves. To those of you who complain about not being able to find a man, or the 10 millionth awful date you’ve gone on, its not them, its YOU! (note: I told you before I wasn’t going to tell you what you wanted to hear) you attract what you exude. Get happy and right with yourself, and someone who is happy and right with themselves will land in your lap (see what I did there).
Ok, so you are all sitting there telling me I’m wrong because you are happy with yourself and blah, blah, blah still can’t find a man. K, take a second, and go DO the things that make you happy. Go be it, saying you are happy and being happy are two things, not one. You have to live it first. Feel sexy on your own, then show it to someone else later. Being a fire wife, I find myself home alone a lot, and I LOVE IT! Yes, I prefer when hubs is home, but not ashamed to say being alone is amazing. Remember that oversized sweatshirt I talked about? paired with a pair of undies and my slips, SEX POT! Light a candle, essential oil up, and just lay there, take a selfie or 10 and again, I’m feelin’ myself. There can be so many different ways and things to put that important smile on your face. So I challenge you, go find it. Try a new gel polish color, buy a new top, or hell just don’t brush your hair one day, find something that unexpectedly makes you feel good and run with it!
Let me know when you find it, we can compare notes on friday.
