“Love, like everything else in life, should be a discovery, an adventure, and like most adventures, you don’t know you’re having one until you’re right in the middle of it.” – E. A. Bucchianeri
You’re falling in love. That warm, fuzzy feeling inside keeps you elated all day long. You mind wanders off to him, his smell, his eyes, his smile. It’s new and it’s exciting. Beyond exciting, even, it’s exhilarating
You don’t eat. Hardly sleep. All of your life seems to have taken shift towards his, because he’s all that matters right now.
And as soon as you have a date lined up, no matter if it’s in a few hours or a week, you start planning. Your outfit, your makeup. What are you going to say? How will you pull your face to look your most luscious?
And then the date comes. And you show up, on time, looking like you came down from heaven on a falling star carried by unicorns (and you got some of Marilyn Monroe’s style tips up there – sultry to the max!). Yes, you may have spent countless of hours on making sure every little detail was worked out to perfection – time you could’ve spent otherwise, but baby baby, it’s so worth it.
Do you feel the excitement? Can you sense the buzz? Hold that for a second.
Now imagine your crush looking like something else, something bigger. Imagine your crush being your life. Because your life is equally as beautiful (okay, maybe minus the piercing grey eyes, but just imagine them there anyway) and important. And you have to work. You have to work hard to make it work, because if you just show up in your sweats, with greasy hair and crumbs all over your face and boobs, that spark will be long gone before you can even say ‘hello’.
Every little thing in life is like a date. It’s hot and steamy and you have to prepare to make it great.
7 a.m. writing session? Sizzle my rizzle, that’s HOT.
Getting sweaty through a cardio session? You’ll look hot, you’ll be hot. It’s literally hot. BOOM.
Taking an hour or two out of your day to read? You’re going to wander through worlds far, far away, you better show up looking lush!
Working at that office you don’t necessarily like that much? Make it amazing by making it sexy. Dress up, show up with your most profound smile and sparkle the place up like nothing else!
Life gets sexy when you make it sexy, but only then. It takes time, it takes work, but ooh la la, it’s always worth it.
So get your agenda and plan all your little life-dates for the upcoming week. Think about how you want to feel when you’re there and make sure that that will become truth.
Life will greet you with a smile and that second date? Yeah, it’s totally up for that.
All my love,
