28/Twenty Eight

As I get closer and closer to my Birthday, I sit and reflect on many things. The good that has happened and also the bad. I am a thinker by nature. It is in my blood. I do a lot of reflecting on a daily basis. It’s just who I am and I have accepted it and realized it is one of my strengths.
This year has been like a roller coaster and not in the adrenaline like sense. I have lost many of things this year. I’ve hit my ultimate low. I’ve cried more tears than any ocean can hold. But here I sit still surviving and working my way through. You never know just how strong you are until you have passed the storm or sitting and reflecting. I have changed so much in this little bit of time that we call a year. I’ve hid my pain from all those who knew me. I played down my hurt. I smiled even though I was dying inside. I had to wonder do we ever achieve happiness? Do we ever get to a point where it’s okay to breathe?
I’ve seen and been through so much in my years of living on this earth. I’ve also achieved a great deal of things. I am grateful for all those achievements and I privately do victory dances for each. I won’t do so publicly for fear all I have will be taken away. I don’t know why I’m afraid to let others see my happiness. I’ve been like that as long as I can remember.
This year was a game changer , a life changer to say the least. I believe it changed me as a being. Changed my soul. So I will forever have this with me. I go forward a new person. I go forward a better me. A stronger me. More alive than ever. I now know exactly who deserves to be in my life and those who definitely must exit. I no longer feel inferior to anyone. I am who I am and my experiences are my own. I’m not perfect but I am great beyond anyone’s measure.
So this new year I welcome and will feel good to be another year wiser and older. I celebrate my age. I’m excited about it. I have never had this type of excitement before. This year. 365 Days.

Hard

My present is so unforgiving of my past that I worry about my future. Who am I during these times? Questions of a troubled woman with a golden soul. Questions I have no answers to. My mind will not let me be silent in thought. My knees are scarred from prayer and my tongue is numb from speaking my heart. The past will not let me forget and the present agreed. I still love to wake up each day with hope and appreciate every breath….shall I breathe in? Today is like no other my dreams are still the same and so are my fears. I have no time to cry or dare to show my pain I’m afraid….I’m indeed afraid.

You Better Flirt!!

Flirting keeps your relationship fresh, fun, friendly, and flatters your partner, boosting his or her confidence. Flirt with your partner everyday, and you’re bound to cause a chemical reaction.
Revive the moves you used when you were dating. They will still work. For her: flutter your eyelashes, toss your hair, grab his arm as he walks you to the car, leave your panties at home when you guys go out dinner and tell him at the restaurant, wear nothing but high heels to bed, tell him he looks great. Just to name few!
For Him: lift something heavy and flex those biceps, carry her into the bedroom, pull out her chair for her, ask her if she wants to share dessert, tell her she looks great. Just to name a few! Until next time…………
Remember: Flirt Outrageously!!!!!!

Hurt

Just set me free, unbound the chains
And watch me flee
All the pain you caused, separates my body from my soul
Now in a million pieces, which once were a whole
I feel trapped here, stuck in this room
All I see are four walls and my never ending doom
The windows give me a glimmer of hope
As that is the only light that shines
How long do I have to search? How many mountains I have left to climb?
When and where does the world become mine? Not here, not there, probably a space in nowhere
The truth I speak, my thoughts run deep
No matter what you may seek, I have sought them longer
When does the hurt go away? What will make me stay? When do I become stronger ?

Bringing Kissing Back!

Kissing is one of the first ways we connect sexually. It sets off intense physical and emotional reactions in the body. It decreases levels of the stress hormone called Cortisol. It increases Oxytocin which is the bonding hormone. Kissing induces relaxation and builds connection. 

That’s why we are bringing kissing back! There are a few tips listed below to help you step up your kissing game!!! So the next time you are with your partner go ahead and plant one on them.

1.)use your hands – create a physical connection in addition to the ones your lips are making.  Try the shoulders, back of the neck, lower back, face…do what feels natural.

2.)make eye contact – Imagine you have to communicate with your eyes alone

3.)Have a heart to heart – If you both tilt your head to your own left side, and lean into your brace a little, your hearts will be touching…go ahead try it, it’s true

4.)relax your mouth and tongue – you will enhance your sensitivity this way 

5.)vary pressure,speed, and technique – you don’t want kissing to be boring, all it takes is variety

6.)know what you’re doing with your tongue – gently slide your tongue in your partners mouth, then move a little bit deeper. Besides lighting up all the many nerve endings in the mouth, the idea is to stimulate the salivary glands, which are located under the tongue next to the back teeth. Saliva contains testosterone , and testosterone provides a jolt to the libido.
