Let me ask you this, do you regularly deny yourself pleasure? We’re not just talking about sex here, but all things of pleasure.
Food – wine – clothes – reading – weekends away – massages….enter what your pleasure is here…
I am 100% guilty of this, always putting my pleasure behind everyone else’s and then some.
A massage? Too indulgent. A facial? Too expensive. A weekend away? Never!
I still struggle with this now even when I have alternate weekends all to myself when I could have 48 hours of pure pleasure – whatever I wanted – with no judgement from anyone else – just being with myself – and there in lies the rub.
It’s not just that we judge ourselves for being “self-indulgent” “spending too much money on oneself” “taking too much time out for me” – we also take on board others perceived or blatant judgements, and put value on these judgements.
Why is it so difficult for, most of us, to give ourselves pleasure (again, in whatever form that takes for you)? Putting ourselves first, as women, just
I am going to strive to address this, this year. I am going to address the balance and plan pleasure time – a very foreign concept to me.
For me, my biggest pleasure at the moment is getting a good book (paperback) and reading…all day long…not having to get lunches or dinners ready, not having to get dressed if I don’t want to, staying all day in my jammies and drinking coffee while I immerse myself in a good book.
I am also going to find other ways to find pleasure in this new found “me” time – trips to the city for lunch and shopping – a spa weekend away – a weekend of self-development, new things I haven’t even thought of yet.
So, who’s with me? Who’s ready to take their own pleasure to the next level? To fully indulge in yourself, to feel sexy, to own it, to explore your body again without the judgement of others or ourselves? Leave a comment below telling us what your biggest pleasure is right now…
Let the pleasure begin!
