Go be sexy!--Be Sexy Series

For the last installment of the Be Sexy series where I'm talking about how YOU can ramp up the sexy in your life, I'm writing about loving yourself first so that the rest will fall into place!  This series is about bringing the sexy back into our lives--even if you're flying solo at the moment. may not be able to control other people, but if you feel confident and sexy, it's amazing what can happen in the romance department.  Trust me...I'm a romance writer. *wink*

Well, for the past three days I've talked a lot about ramping up the sexy with tips on kissing, raiding the underwear drawer and saying yes to joy.  Today I'm wrapping it up by talking about not only of someone else, but of yourself.  No, don't go hopping the end of the day all the sexiness in the world leads to the one great thing we're all striving for...LOVE.

The great poet Rumi wrote: “Wherever you are, and whatever you do, be in love.” 

To me, Rumi's poem sums it up perfectly.  If you really want to be sexy, love yourself, your life and those around you.  Fall in love with yourself...and your life.  Love attracts love.  

There have been times in my life when I haven't loved myself very much--when I've looked around and only seen the negative.  Those were some lonely times.  When I started loving what I did for a living, loving the view for the sake of its beauty alone, loving myself for my quirks, loving my family for their imperfections and loving life itself because it could all be gone tomorrow, I felt a shift deep within my core that rocked my world.  It was a shift toward joy.    

Everything I've written in this Ramp Up Your Sexy series for the Romancing the Blog hop has been aimed at loving yourself and life.  The sexiest thing about anyone is their confidence followed closely by their happiness.  

So, please, think about this carefully.  When is the last time you noticed how good you look in your favorite shirt rather than focusing in on the negative?  When is the last time you looked in the mirror and complimented yourself rather than chastised?  When is the last time you gave yourself a pat on the back for juggling all that you do?  When is the last time you did something just because you absolutely love doing it?  Start now and make it a habit. 

LOVE is what we all want at the dimming of the day...after the kissing and the lingerie and the laughter.  It's all connected...and it all begins with you.  Focus on what you love about your life--despite the b.s. that can drag you down--examine your life for the good and you'll find an abundance of it.  Loving ourselves and life itself is the sexiest thing of all.  

Go be sexy!

I can so relate with you on the not loving yourself bit. I have always told my kids that you can't get people to like you if you don't like yourself. Great blog. I would like the B & N gift card if I win.

More books to add to my to-read list! I have a Nook, so B&N is better for me.

Thanks for being in this blog hop!

Why I like Romance Novels….The reason I like Romance Novels so much is because it is one place where I can be anywhere like England, Scotland, Rome, Ireland, or anywhere in the US. I can also be in any time like 1200’s Scotland, 1500’s England, 1900’s Chicago. I can be anyone like a princess, a servant, a werewolf, a duchess, a vampire, or a lost soul. But no matter what I get the privilege and the experience to overcome many different obstacles and find love. I am a mother of three teenagers as well and there are many days when I need an escape and my heart needs a rest from the trials of being a parent and trying to do what is best for everyone but yourself. I have overcome cancer, loss, and financial problems and Romance Books let my heart soar and feel free. Let me tell you in this world, and during this time where life can have so many struggles it is great that you can be, have, and do so many things to find love and romance and still be yourself!
