Dare to be sexy

I read a blogger application recently and the Store Owner had posted “include in your application a picture you’ve done that takes you outside of your comfort zone.” For me, the first thing that came to mind was this “dare to be sexy”. As women, it’s ‘ok’ to be “cute” or “the girl next door” or “the mother” or “the sister” … basically everything but overtly sexual. It still feels that if we step out confidently and choose to be sexy we’re either conforming to male gender stereotypes, we’re compromising our integrity or we’re doing it with some ulterior motive in mind. We shouldn’t be sexy by choice…but we can and we should allow ourselves that freedom if we choose.

Being sexy doesn’t mean stripping off and flaunting our bodies. It’s a state of mind; an attitude and how we carry ourselves. It’s confidence. It’s accepting who we are. It’s embracing our bodies and not hiding it underneath layers because we aren’t that size 6 on the clothes rack. It’s forgiving ourselves all our lumps and bumps, smiling and thinking “I’m great and I’m going to show you that I am an amazing person.” So, Ms. Store Owner, if you ever read this …. thank you. You’ve helped me step out of my comfort zone today ❤

Pray for me

Who and what do you pray for? Do people pray anymore or is it just used as a figure of speech? A flamboyant way to say “wish me luck!” I’ve never considered there to be a ‘God’ in the heavens; a benevolent bearded man who looks down and makes grand designs. I have a faith in ‘something bigger’ but as I’ve become older (and a little more cynical), this has been tested. RL tells me he believes in physics and science. What I’m saying is, if I ever ask you to pray for me, hold me in your thoughts and send me positive encouragement. This type of prayer suits me better.

Someone who makes me happy

“Be with someone that makes you happy” or “Be someone that makes you happy”. Funny how the removal of one little word can change the meaning of this statement so significantly. It comes back to something I’ve discussed before. Do I look to another person to define me and make me happy? Or, do I look within myself and be the person who makes me happy? In my younger years, I spent a lot of time caring too much about other people, their opinions of me and being defined by them. As I’ve become older (and a little wiser), I’ve realised two things: I have to live with myself and my own decisions and very few of these people haven’t lasted the course. Simply put, they don’t matter. I matter. So, if I want to tattoo myself, wear killer heels and sprawl over a neon sign, I can and I will. Because I’m that someone who makes me happy 🙂
