While I was at my favorite coffee shop this morning, I meandered around the store looking at all the Valentine’s Day gifts they had for sale. What happened next was so utterly mystifying, that I let my café mocha become cold and had to order another. Let me first preface this with: I am a huge fan of gifts. If it’s wrapped in a bow, even an empty box is irresistible to me. This said, I was bewildered by the fact that I wouldn’t want to receive any of these things for sale at the coffee shop as presents for Valentine’s Day. Yes, they were so over-the-top saccharine sweet that I got a cavity just looking at them. But that’s what Valentine’s Day is all about. Or is it?
I frankly think Valentine’s Day has lost its lust. Of course, teddy bears are cute for the kiddies, but why should adults celebrate love in the same way? J’adore celebrating love, but I believe love comes in all sorts of yummy flavors and for grown-ups a delicious one is sexy. I personally cannot imagine a better way to observe this day than to bring out the sexier side of yourself.
Let’s reclaim the glory days of ancient Rome, when Valentine’s Day was a joyous holiday for all Goddesses – married, maiden or virgin. It’s all about you learning to own and enjoy your sexuality. This is what I will be sharing with you in my blogs for the next month leading up to February 14th. When I advise women to wear pretty lingerie – I enlighten them that this should be for YOU – to feel more feminine, confident and to enjoy your body. You should not do it exclusively for a partner (though they will take pleasure in receiving the benefits). The things I teach will show you how to be IN LOVE WITH LIFE! The French call it ‘joie de vivre’ and let me tell you, nothing is more attractive.
Whether you have a partner or are a sexy single this Valentine’s Day, let this be a time to be IN LOVE WITH LIFE! And let’s bring sexy back!
