Having boundaries as women is very important. I know we are here to serve a lot and nourish people and give a lot but if we are empty there is nothing to give. It’s important for you to recognize when you are overwhelmed with commitments and exercise your right to say no.
When we have made ourselves available to anyone and everyone that asks, we give and give and give and don’t make the time for ourselves to fill back up. Eventually our well nears the end of its reserves. When that happens, our attitude turns negative and even more draining on us. We become impatient with the kids and don’t have the energy to have sex with our man.

When life is predictable all the time we have this feeling of being safe but I want you to know it’s really an illusion. Every day is the unknown.
Staying within the confines of predictable and comfortable stops us from being able to experience the realm of the amazing world beyond the predictable and comfortable. How can you know what you are missing or if you are living life to its full potential if you don’t step out of your comfort zone every now and then?

Pleasures are really interesting topic to talk about because there’s always don’t get too excited or don’t count your eggs before they hatch attitude. Don’t get too excited about that audition because you might not get the job. We are not allowed to feel pleasure in life and be excited.
Why not? We are adults. We can handle disappointment if it should come our way. If we don’t allow ourselves to feel pleasure until certainty is present, we miss the whole first feelings of the joy of the positive expectancy of what might happen.
Allow yourself to feel the pleasure of the moment. Any moment. There is always something to bring you pleasure in any moment. If someone gives you a compliment, take it in. Be pleased.

I think it’s important as moms, and certainly as sexy moms, that we put ourselves first. That doesn’t mean nobody gets breakfast before I do. No, that’s not what I mean. What I am talking about is setting aside some time every day for you. If you don’t create it it’s not going to happen.
