Bitch Rule #1:  Love Yourself.  With Abandon!  Every delicious, naughty, amazing ounce of you.

Bitch Rule #2:  We will not compete with other women.  This forum is a place where we can support, cheer, and turn each other on with our individual sense of fun, play and laughter.

Bitch Rule #3:  We will not judge each other here.   The path to falling completely in love with ourselves takes some unexpected turns.  We support each other and love the discoveries!

Bitch Rule #4:  We treat our bodies like the gorgeous vessels they are.  Our skin, organs, lips, brain, hair, limbs and luscious pussies are celebrated.  Every inch.  We are beautiful!

Bitch Rule #5:  We love our girlfriends and stay faithful always!  We do not break dates with them when our new guys call us last minute.  Or change plans with them if he wants to do something.  Our time with our girlfriends is sacred.  We keep that time when we start seeing a new man, have a boyfriend or get married.  Yay girlfriends!

Bitch Rule #6:  We are grateful and appreciate what we have everyday.  Our families, friends, men, careers, children, pets, plants and our luscious bodies.  (There is so much to appreciate!  Thank you Universe!!)

Bitch Rule #7:  We revel in our power to attract as women.  We are attractors.   Magnets.

Bitch Rule #8:  We understand that a lot of men don’t understand what we want.   The sexes communicate in such different ways.   Here we will learn how to communicate in a way to make them understand what we want.  We will do so in a loving and patient way.

Bitch Rule #9:  We stand by those who stand by us.

And there is so much more fun to come…Love, Goddess

Adoration…

Is there someone in your life who you deeply love or adore?  Take a moment today and appreciate or adore them.  From the heart.

  • Call your family…or at least your Mom…and tell her you love her.
  • Send a thank you card to a girlfriend.  Thank them for being your friend!
  • When your husband or boyfriend comes home tonight, drop everything & run over and give them a huge hug and smile.  For extra credit give them a passionate kiss!  When they ask “What was that for?”  Say…”Just because,” or something similar.
  • Buy some flowers and give them out to women you don’t know.  All day long.  Enjoy the surprised expression on their beautiful faces.
  • Buy some Valentines and get them ready not for the men in your life…but all the women!
  • Buy your brother or best guy friend a six pack of his favorite beer.

Finally…in celebration of yourself:  book yourself a manicure or pedicure, take a  spa bath with candles and stay there until you are the definition of prune or smile at yourself in the mirror and say “I love you.”

With Love, Laughter and Play, Goddess

Worry Just Kills “Delicious.”

Ahhhh…you lay back in your beautiful bed with the fluffy pillows.  Your skin feels so soft and smooth from the lotion you just applied.  You have sprayed your lovely self with some shimmer spray.  You feel calm, at peace…looking forward to sweet dreams.  Then, out of the blue “worry” pops into your cute little head.  You question something you did earlier in the day.  Then you question something else.  Next thing you know you’re wide-awake and your heart is gently pounding.  Deliciousness:  gone in an instant.

Today’s discussion is how do we get over this little “worry” hurdle.  I hate to call it little, because it’s not.  It can strike at any time and throw us for a very unfun loop.  It happened to me last night.  Just like I put in the first paragraph.  Then I got pissed.  First I start to worry about something I did earlier in the day and then I get angry with myself for doing it!  Definitely not the path to staying delicious.  So how do we get ourselves away from the “drama” of worry?

Own it and then switch it.  If it’s something you’re questioning, you probably took a chance.  Chances are always good.  You are going for something you want.  Own that.  If it falls into an unpleasant little pattern, then it’s time to stop.  Remember my “Never beat yourself up” discussion from yesterday?  Do whatever it takes to stop worrying and questioning yourself.  Here are some ways to stop the worry so you can get back to delicious:

  •  I’m a big fan of slowly breathing.  It’s something I constantly resist doing (because of my impatience?  LOL…see my earlier blog)
  • Close your eyes and list all the things you are grateful for
  • Have someone tickle you. ASAP!
  • Dance your butt off to a favorite tune
  • Give yourself a scalp massage
  • Give yourself a mini-vacation…imagine yourself in Paris, Greece, Hawaii
  • Look at yourself in the mirror, smile and say you’re so cute for “worrying.” Then change it up into something positive about you.
  • There is always good chocolate, organic tea, scrapbooks and lip-gloss!

I’m also going to recommend reading to you:  Dr. Christiane Northrup’s “Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom” and Louise Hay’s “You Can Heal Your Life.”  Here is a quote from the back of Ms. Hays book:  “The thoughts we think and the words we speak create our experiences.  If we are willing to do the mental work, almost anything can be healed.”   It took a while for my intellectual mind to get around that quote, I thought it was, well, nonsense.  Then I read the books and was truly amazed.  These women rock and I am so grateful for their words.  I give them to you. 

With Love and Laughter, Goddess

Feeling Delicious About You

I wrote this blog because I had just worked out. And I felt delicious! My heart was gently pounding, my muscles had been stretched and challenged, I was thirsty from the exertion, and my face was flushed and glowing! It amazes me how much better I feel after working out. It also amazes me how much I don’t want to work out in the moments before starting to work out. I come up with every excuse in the book. No way. I have too much to do today. I hate sweating. It’s boring. It’s Monday. It takes so long! I’m tired. Etc, etc. So…how do I get to the fun? The delicious feeling I have after working out? Good old “fun” analysis. Just like savoring, passion and flirtation, I have to find the magic formula to keep me feeling delicious.

My first thought was: I’m resisting the good feelings. I’m resisting the endorphins that give me energy and glow for the remainder of the day. Why would I do that? Just like we say “no” to the fun in anything. We don’t take the time and savor what makes us feel good so we feel good less. Like my earlier blog on fear: We are a “no pain no gain society.” Let’s apply this quote to working out. Who wants to focus on “no pain no gain?” That’s no fun. The fun part is enjoying how amazing you feel after. Right?

What I want: The deliciousness I feel after working out. What will get me to that delicious glow?  My analysis on the subject has to include what I don’t like when working out. My researched solution is italics.

  • I don’t like the word “exercise.” LOL. So I will call it “moving my body.”
  • I don’t like routine. So I cannot “commit myself” to just one program. So I won’t. Because I like variety I will have a variety of ways to “move my body” at my disposal (Netflix, Exercise TV or purchase different DVDs) When it’s nice outside I’ll try new activities.
  • Sometimes I don’t feel like doing an hour of activity. Or 30 min. Or 20 min. Thank goodness for On Demand. They have 10 minute “move your body” segments. I can do a little here and a little there.
  • Whenever I don’t want to “move my body” I focus on how good I feel after I do. Those endorphins feel so good. I glow and feel delicious. I say this over and over and let it wash over me.
  • If I really truly do not want to “move my body” I will not beat myself up about it. Because it’s not fun beating myself up!

Switching to this way of thinking takes practice. It didn’t happen to me overnight. But isn’t focusing on what feels good so much more fun? If you would like to take a bite out of this way of thinking, check out my other posts. They are full of ways to find the fun. Remember…a delicious you is a pleasure to everyone around you!  Love, Goddess
