As I was sweeping and mopping the floors this morning it hit me – this is what sexy is all about. And then I started thinking about my mom and how she is the root of what I know to be sexy in my life [these sweeping sessions are deep I tell you]. Sexy isn’t what media shoves down our throat – barely there clothing, fake eye lashes and tiny little bodies everywhere..it’s real woman doing real things. It’s not just about our bodies, it’s about our brains. It’s not about how much we have, it’s about how hard we worked to get it. It’s about strength, generosity and so much more than the latest filtered selfie.
1. You want it – you work for it. Laziness is not sexy my friends, hard work is. Because she learned from an early age that nothing comes for free [a realization that our generation is struggling with big time] she worked hard to provide a life for her family that she would be proud of. My mom didn’t just teach for 35 years, she was also the high school athletic director when us girls were young, coached many of our sports teams, kept her yard one of the best on the block by mowing and pulling all of the weeds herself, and the list goes on and on. Since being retired for 5 years I asked the other day if she has taken a nap yet – she hasn’t. Don’t count on handouts, be the cause of your success.
11. When all else fails, dye your hair – get your nails done – throw on some great fitting jeans and dive head first into some much needed retail therapy.
