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 ❤

Um, no.

Funny how such a small word, containing only two letters, can often be the hardest to say. Whether it’s from fear of rejection, always wanting to be the life of the party or wanting to please other people, there can be a multitude of reasons we say ‘yes’ rather than saying ‘no’. It’s something I’m often guilty of; I won’t say no because I want to make other people happy, but it can be at the expense of my own happiness. So, if you ever hear those words exiting my lips, appreciate it’s from a need to preserve my sense of ‘self’ and it’s never ever intended to let you down.

Feelin’ Whimsical

Thursday….those blessed words ring in my mind this morning as I realise we’re nearly at the weekend. Nearly Friday day, as the Boss likes to call it and I couldn’t agree with him more. This week has been a mix of quiet spells and manic moments. I’m begging with time to hurry up so I can get to the weekend but sadly, even this will be a busy one. We can grant ourselves the luxury of a lie in though, perhaps an afternoon nap and a chance to recharge for the week ahead.
