I’m so excited to fall in love today! Thank you for deciding to play with me. You’ve all made my day. For our first day, there are three very important homework assignments.
A. Adornment Assignment
The first one is to adorn yourself in something that makes you feel good. We’ll call it “Adornment Assignment.” You can do one little thing or a whole bunch. Your choice. Before I wrote this, I took a nice warm shower, put on my favorite fragrant body lotion and massaged my feet. I’m wearing my most comfortable outfit and my hair is loose and slightly wild. My favorite candle is encircling me with the fresh fragrance of grapefruit and cucumber…mmmmmm. Here are some ideas to adorn yourself with:
1. Something silky against your skin
2. A feather or poofy fragrance puff of some kind to tickle or caress yourself with
3. Glitter lotion, gel or powder
4. Stickers, gems, temporary tattoos-the stores are loaded right now with fun ones for Valentines
5. Lip Gloss in your favorite shade
6. Nothing…and some heels or yummy lotion/perfume (if you’re feeling slightly naughty!)
When you take this moment to adorn yourself, don’t just do it. Enjoy it. The scent, the feeling, the whatever you choose to do. Savor. The next time you do the “Adornment Assignment,” try to add on to your enjoyment. Ask yourself…what would make me feel good right now?
B. Deeply Thankful
The second assignment is to be “Deeply Thankful.” Sit in the moment after you have adorned yourself and savored. Relax and be deeply thankful for all the amazing things in your life. Your beautiful body (name your favorite parts!) family, friends, creativity, etc. Take as long as you like. This may be a little hard to do at first: appreciation of yourself. But like with anything…practice makes perfect.
C. Love Affair Journal
The third assignment is to really note how you feel. Write a short note in a lovely notebook or on a decorated word template (if you wish). Call it something hot like “My Love Affair Journal” or something. I’m going to do this right along with you. We can compare notes together.
As I give you assignments this week, use the first two assignments as your base. First things first: always pay tribute to you somehow, everyday. We will be adding on delicious and fun things for you to do all week. All designed to get you in touch with the laugh, love and play part of you. The celebration of the gorgeous, inner Goddess that is you. With love, laughter and play, Goddess
Tomorrow: Appreciation, Extra Credit Assignments and Men
