I’m a big believer that sexy is a feeling – not a weight or age! You don’t have to look like a super model to feel super sexy in your skin – or even kinda sexy!
Look at Amy Schumer – both in real life and in her movie “I Feel Pretty”!
In the movie ( which was “meh” but with a great “message”!) Amy gets a clunk on the head which makes her suddenly see her once insecure self as someone who is beautiful and appealing. As a result, she stops carrying herself in a way which expresses insecurity. Instead she carries herself as someone who feels beautiful. She’s the same weight and age – yet – thanks to her inner confidence, suddenly everyone finds her magnetically appealing.
Soon Amy’s renewed self acceptance and appreciation of her full, full-figured self begins to extend beyond her sexuality. Amy becomes empowered to live fearlessly – because she’s so confident in her skin.
I want the same for YOU!
With this in mind here are 2 quotes and 6 tips to help you get your sexy back!
sexy quote #1
Sexy isn’t about what you wear. It’s about how you feel. The more passion you feel for yourself and your life, the more passion others will feel for you. – Karen Salmansohn
sexy quote #2
“You know what’s sexy? A person who’s gone through a life challenge, and comes out with insights, more depth, and a fiery passion to face forward, forward, forward.” – Karen Salmansohn
Every morning when you wake up, put on some confidence building music like “You Sexy Thing” by Hot Chocolate and/or “I’m Sexy and I Know It” and/or “I’m To Sexy”. Next, look in the mirror seek out at least one thing about yourself that you believe is appealing. Anything. Your smile. Your style. Your hair. Etc… Compliment yourself right to your face in the mirror. (Note: Singing and dancing along to the lyrics and music in these uplifting songs is optional – but also highly confidence building!)
Express who you are in your clothes. Don’t try to hide in your clothes.
Try to hold this feeling in your mind and body. after you open your eyes.
Imagine how confident they feel in their body. Try to hold in your mind and body how they feel as you go about your day.
Take time alone with yourself – and discover what turns you on – so you feel fully sexually awake and confident in your sexuality.
