More Than Just a Mom

0

If you love yourself, then show it. If you’re a sexy mama, then act like it. If you you want to feel loved, then start by loving yourself.

Us moms do everything for everyone. We hold it all together, we plan, we schedule, we clean, we cook, we play, we worry, we celebrate, we love. But what do we do for ourselves? What do you do to show yourself love?

Love, passion, and sensuality are all waiting for you. You just have to start being intentional about it and take every little opportunity you can to add some more love into your life. Write your own love story ladies!

All too often, I feel like when women become mothers they slip into this sort of comfort zone of being just a mom. It’s easy to get caught up in all of the chaos of raising a family, and forget that we were actually confident, sexy, strong women long before we became mothers. We slip into this role of what society says a mother should look like and act like, and before you know it we are no longer really ourselves.

I’ve always been a firm believer in self-love and taking care of my needs as a woman – as a person – as an individual – in order to be the best mom I can be! If we don’t take care of ourselves, and don’t love ourselves first, then we can’t truly care for others. This is when we start to slip into those “mom traps” that I mentioned above and we start wearing our husbands t-shirts… with no bra on… in public. And that’s just not good for anyone!

It’s up to us mamas to put the spark back into our relationship – and I’m not talking about your marriage or your relationship with your significant other – I’m talking about your relationship with yourself.

It can be as simple as shaving your legs and slipping into something silky. Sleeping naked in freshly washed sheets. Soaking in a candlelit bath. Wear a sassy bra under your everyday attire. Tell yourself a little mantra about how confident and sexy you are. Nobody will know but you. And that’s the magic of it. All of these little moments of love are just for YOU.

Notice the taste, smells, fabrics, and activities that make you feel sexy and invigorated, and then do more of those things. Incorporate little things into your busy mom-duty-filled days to just spark a little moment of love within yourself! Go confidently about your day, proud of the woman that you are, be yourself, and love yourself!
