When was the last time you took a few days away from your kids? And I mean, completely away, without any of the mom guilt most of us typically experience?
When was the last time you took some time for yourself… to laugh, to dance, to party, to wander, to indulge, to unleash yourself as a free woman in the world?
As mothers, that kind of experience is pretty rare. And yet, I took an opportunity to do just that right after I launched my new book, The Mommy Mojo Makeover: 28 Tools to Reclaim Yourself and Reignite Your Relationship.
I’d worked my tail off in the weeks leading up to the release date, sacrificing time spent with my kids and leaving my husband to fend for himself for home-cooked dinners… and yet, the hard work was worth it.
The launch was everything I’d hoped it to be. I felt proud and accomplished, and truthfully, the successful outcome inspired my Mojo and sexual desire! Fulfilling my dream to publish this book left me feeling sexy, alive and liberated. (But still, I’d worked my ass off and this mommy needed a “time out.”)
And so, I took a two-day staycation here in Miami with a best girlfriend. And my goodness… did we indulge. In freedom, in food, in laughter, and in… LICKING THE FROSTING.
Yes, literally and figuratively, we decided to lick all the frosting we could until it was time to head back to our families and back into Mommy-mode.
Yet, on our last night away from our families, a flash of “mom guilt” tried to sabotage our fun. But, we SIMPLY DIDN’T ALLOW IT TO. We chose to lick the frosting instead.
So, in today’s video, you’ll learn:
– Why I blurted out “What’s life worth if you can’t lick the frosting” in a midnight taxi ride.
– How the concept of licking the frosting can help you banish mom-guilt and worry.
– And how applying the “licking the frosting” mindset on a daily basis can help you feel sexier and more alive.
I don’t know any mama who doesn’t experience some form of mom-guilt and worry on a daily basis. Or any mama who doesn’t deserve to have more fun, more freedom, and more laughter either. So once you’ve had a chance to watch, I’d love to hear your perspective and any tips you have on how to overcome mom guilt and how to have more fun.
Come on over to The Satisfied Mama where we’re discussing what it means to lick the frosting and sharing ideas on how to do that within the reality of our daily lives as moms.
