Do you feel your mojo changing? Shifting?

woman-undressingFor some women their sex appeal and appetite increase, for others it decreases.

What’s it like for you?

Do you have a healthy relationship with yourself? Meaning…do you really know yourself?

Head to toe, inside and out, every nook and cranny?

At this stage of your life do you know what you like, how you like it and when?

Have you tuned into all the little nuances that turn you on- or off for that matter?

Are you able to speak up and communicate effectively with your partner (or know how to handle yourself if that’s where you are right now) as to the tempo and rhythm that floats your boat…so to speak.

Getting in tune with your body is not always easy but it is necessary. Are you able to please yourself (that’s an M word for another post) or do you rely on someone else to get you to the finish line?

A big concern seems to be vaginal dryness.

woman-mid-body-for-mojo-blogMany women enlist the aid of a lubricant to ease the dryness and/or discomfort they might feel during sex.

Do you prefer a prescription lubricant, an over the counter one or good old fashion coconut oil? (warning coconut oil is FANTASTIC and a little goes a long way, however, if you’re using a condom it renders it ineffective  – so be forewarned).

Your mojo isn’t just about sex. Your sex appeal and how you feel about yourself is paramount.

Do you like what you see when you look in the mirror? Does it make you smile?

If not, are you actively working on ‘improvements’ or are you too busy beating yourself up for not being/ looking as good as you could?

Let’s face it, we could all improve something. What is it that you would like to ‘enhance’ or ‘improve?’

If you had a list of just 3 things that would make you more comfortable in your skin if it were ‘better’ in some way….what would they be?  Would you be daring enough to share what they are?

I’ll show you mine if you show me yours 😉    (my list, that is)

They hook you.

They hurt you.

They validate you.

Words are indeed very powerful. Sometimes you don’t need many to get your point across, be heard or make a point.

Z is for RE-ZIST

Congratulations…you are 1 activity away from completing the A to Z’s of RE-DESIGNING Your Life Challenge!

Look at how far you’ve come!

You made it!ww

You’ve hung in there and put all that time, effort and attention into RE-DESIGNING   YOUR Life.

I know it wasn’t easy at times yet you persevered.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and to care about yourself enough to be the best you that you could possibly be!

This isn’t an exact science and there are no perfect outcomes.

Change can be challenging and difficult as well as rewarding. I prefer to use the word ‘IMPROVEMENTS’ instead of ‘CHANGES’ – it just makes it a little easier to deal with, you can borrow this or use any word/term that you prefer to get the job done.

Now that you have gained all that momentum its time to RE-ZIST falling back onto old ways, old outdated patterns.

queen i amUse what you’ve gained to keep propelling you forward and attain even more progress.

Remember this is not a race to be won. Proceed at your own pace and timing.

You can always come back and review what still needs completion.

If there are any challenges or activities that you’ve missed please RE-ZIST the urge to ‘get back to it some other time.’

There is no time like the present. See where you can carve out pockets of time AND REACH YOUR GOAL!


Keep up the good work!

Until we meet again…Have a ZEALOUS day!power allalong

It happens to all of scale

No one escapes it.

I’m talking about aging.

Try as you may, you just cant escape it…..or can you?

Chronologically you will get older but you don’t have to be its prisoner.

The definition of  YOUTHEN according to Merriam Webster is:


-ed / -ing / -s

transitive verb

: to make youthful in appearance, behavior, or qualities of mind or feeling.

You can choose to see youth as an ‘attitude’ that you can adapt/wear now instead of thinking that it was wasted in yesteryear.

All is not lost.

lolNow I’m not suggesting immaturity or irresponsibility.

Neither am I suggesting lotions, potions or pills that can be toxic or dangerous.

I’m suggesting getting in touch with that youthful glow by wearing a new attitude and behavior.

Try in on for size.

This is a matter of the mind that can positively effect the body.

Do you carry yourself proudly or drag yourself around?

Do you accentuate your body in a flattering way or throw on baggy unattractive clothes just to get through the day with little effort paid to your appearance just because you would rather be comfortable?

Do you have a positive outlook on life or do you feel that you are in a constant state of doom and gloom?

This challenge involves looking at aspects of your life/mindset that may be holding you back – or should I say propelling you too far in to the future too fast.

Get in touch with that younger version of yourself and make a list of aspects that you would like to experience again or expand your current qualities.

Are there activities, ideas or things that you’ve always wanted to try or do?

Now may just be the right time. Are you ready?

Find at least 3 things that you would like to give some attention to and get to work!

Until we meet again…Have a very ‘YOU’ kind of day!lady in cape
