What are you waiting for?

  • One day I’ll…
  • I’ll start working out January 1st…
  • I can’t do that until…

What are you waiting for?

My December Newsletter asks the question, “What is getting in the way of your life?”

Are you waiting for -

  • more money?
  • to lose weight?
  • the kids to grow up?
  • a better job?
  • more education?
  • an illness to get under control?
  • to feel better?
  • to be happy?
  • a bigger house?
  • the right time?

If you are waiting for the ideal time to do something you may be waiting for a LONG time!  If you are waiting for the ideal situation, it might not ever present itself.

What are you waiting for?

What are you putting off right now?

What would happen if you took a step forward right now (even if it’s not the ideal time, you aren’t the ideal weight, it’s not January 1st, etc).

What are you waiting for?

Sexy Holiday Gifts

Sexy Christmas

The holidays can be about family, connection and love. The holidays can be for religious celebration. The holidays can be hard, difficult or sad. The holidays can be about traditions, rituals and sharing. The holidays can be for giving and receiving.

Can the holidays be sexy?!?

Absolutely!

Here are some ways you can “sex-up” your holiday giving!

  • Give Gifts that Keep on Giving

Books – Buy a book that focuses on relationships or sexuality.  Getting the Sex You Want by Tammy Nelson is great for couples.

Toys - Get your partner a toy that she can use alone or with you.

Erotica - There are plenty of erotic books or audio books out there that will tickle your partner’s fancy.

Classes – Buy a spot in a class for your partner.  The class itself will feel like a gift and then the knowledge she gains can be brought back into your relationship.  My “You Don’t Have to be a Sexy Tiger: Discover YOUR Sexual Self!” is a great gift for the special lady in your life!

Lingerie - Buy something that will make your lover feel sexy and confident!

Sexy Photos – Have sexy pictures taken and then give them to your partner.

  • Give the Gift of an Experience

Gift Certificates - Buy a gift certificate to an adult store. If you are in the Portland area, I highly recommend She Bop!  There are also plenty of great online stores that cater to women or couples.

Seduce Your Partner -  Plan a special evening or event.

  • Give a Gift that Doesn’t Cost $

Create a sexy coupon book – You can include coupons for cuddling, kissing, sex or any of the above experiences.

Read erotica to your partner -Instead of just buying a book for your partner you can offer to read erotica or record your voice reading the erotica.

Write an erotic story – Write a sexy story or fantasy for your partner.

Write down your favorite sexual memory – Tell your partner about your favorite shared sexual experience.

Write a letter - This can be a romantic or sexy gift.  It’s a wonderful personal way to let your partner know you care.

The holidays can be a lot of things…you don’t need to put your sexuality on the back burner.  Find a way to celebrate yourself and your relationship during this stressful time of year.

Be Gentle With Yourself This Holiday Season

DSC01093

I was intending to write a post on the 4th about creating holiday traditions.  However, that day I found out that my dad’s battle with cancer may be coming to an end.  I can’t really think about starting new traditions as I grieve.  I can’t think about ways to celebrate this wonderful season, while I think about the last moments I may have with my dad.

Most of my family lives in the Midwest so I was on speaker phone as they all gathered in my dad’s hospital room to talk about next steps and possibilities.  As I hung up the phone, my mind started reeling with all of the things I “need to do” before I fly home to be with my family.  For a few minutes I considered just canceling Christmas this year.  For a few minutes I thought about trying to do things as I usually do (the parties and baking and presents and celebrating and traditions).  I was already feeling a bit overwhelmed trying to balance my practice, my 4 month old and the holidays and now my mind was racing with things to do for my dad and my family…things to say…memories…feelings…

The holidays can be so overwhelming! They can be full of “shoulds” and obligations and guilt and stress. The holidays can also be heartbreaking if you are alone or grieving.  The holidays can be bittersweet if they remind you of a lost love or loved one.  The holidays can be hard!  We don’t need to make them harder than they already are.  If you are struggling this holiday season, please give yourself a break.  You don’t have to do it all (and you probably couldn’t even if you tried).  Please be gentle with yourself.  Give yourself a break. Turn down the volume on your inner critic and turn up the volume on your inner cheerleader.

It’s OK if you only do the holidays half way. 

It’s OK if you skip the holidays all together. 

It’s OK if you have a full blown rockin’ holiday season.

What’s most important is that you take care of yourself and celebrate (or not) in the way that feels best for you.  Be gentle with yourself this holiday season…that is one gift of love that you can shower on yourself.
