Okay, so it's been 16 days so far and here is the list of things that were posted to help us mommas grab hold of our sexiness:
- Define what "sexy" means to you
- Dance...like no one is watching
- Wear red lipstick (or any sexy shade of your choice)
- Belly Massage
- Write a love letter to the body part that your not the biggest fan of
- Write a love letter to the body part that you absolutely love
- Go commando
- Breathing exercise
- Mindfulness-connect with your body
- Take a compliment
- Date yourself week: Buy yourself flowers
- Be selfish
- Buy yourself fancy chocolate
I've done each of these and I've gotta say that not only have I actually noticed a change in my confidence but (a little TMI)..also in my libido. I'm starting to realize that after having 3 kids I should be proud of my battle scars. I have the body of a real woman and DAMN IT that's something to be proud of. That's not to say that I don't have any hang ups, but it does let me appreciate my body today instead of wishing it was the body of yesterday.
I'm lazy when it comes to losing weight. I love a maple bacon donut... or 3 and guess what?? I can still feel sexy and have that donut.
I'm not relying on my husband to make me feel sexy, which is something I did in the past. For being the self-proclaimed feminist that I am I can't believe that I never recognized I was actually doing that. Of course I'm not going to feel sexy if I wait for others to validate it for me. That just sounds crazy now that I say..um..write it out.
So, where are you in this discovery month? Have you noticed a change? What do you do to make yourself feel sexy? Share it sister! We are a tribe of women that need to support each other and it's okay to share the things we talk about in small groups with a larger group that could use your help. Be an empowered woman who empowers women.
Much love, all you sexy beasts.
