As Mother’s Day approaches I’d like to share a thought with you. Even though you’re a mother, you’re still a sexual/sensual being in your own right.
Even though you’re a wife or girlfriend or partner or significant other, you’re still a sexual being. You are responsible for your own pleasure, for the vibrant, beautiful sexual goddess that you are.
When many women become mothers, their self-definition changes, often at the expense of their own femininity. The same thing goes for women in relationships; you focus so much on others in your life that you forget about yourself.
An interesting thing is that the more fulfilling sex you have, and by that I mean physically and emotionally, even spiritually, fulfilling, the better you’re able to fulfill the other roles in your life.
Some of the benefits of that sexual expression include: Better health, your immune system works better, you get sick less often, you sleep better, you have more energy, you have a greater sense of humour, you’re more patient, you’re calmer, you’re able to cope better with stress and recover from stressful situations quicker, you have greater empathy for those close to you, you’re able to love more, you feel better about yourself on all levels, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
So without waiting for anybody else to do it, give yourself permission to claim more, or reclaim if you need, the beauty, the power, the pleasure of your sexuality. Acknowledge yourself anew as a sexual/sensual being.
Take some time for your own pleasure, give yourself permission to be selfish as you take your pleasure, demand it. And if you’re on your own, take the time for some pleasure for yourself. Simply allow yourself to feel the beauty that you are. (Health24, updated April 2011)
