That moment you’re on a roller coaster and you’re about to hit a frightening loop. That ache in the pit of your stomach is back – but this time it rushes up through your heart. It feels like it grasps at your throat. Causing you to cry out in pain with a voice you’ve never heard before. Tears explode through you. You hyperventilate.
And in that moment…you just feel helpless.
Last week I wrote a post titled “I Think it’s Time for a Personal Beauty Intervention.” I wrote about the struggles we go through when it comes to personal beauty and how we’re always criticizing ourselves. I made a point to emphasize how our level of self-esteem is contagious. Sometimes we don’t realize how that affects others around us.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month ladies! And although it’s honored this month, awareness should last a lifetime. Unfortunately, my aunt lost her battle to this horrible disease when I was 19-years-old. She was the most vibrant, loving, and beautiful person, inside and out. I remember her always making us laugh and she was definitely a feisty woman!
Aging sucks. We’re all trying to avoid it. No one wants wrinkles or super droopy sagging body parts. Some of us will go to amazing lengths to stop the aging process, no matter how silly we look. Lifts here…injections there…it really is an uphill battle.
Our bodies and sexual pleasure are nothing to be ashamed of…right? I mean…we’re only human and as long as we’re taking care and protecting ourselves, then sex shouldn’t be a taboo topic. It took me some time to think about writing this. I’m not a prude by any means, but growing up I didn’t really see or hear the media discuss sex as openly as it is now. And if you follow me via the Curves and Chaos Facebook page, then you know I actually asked you all if I should even host this giveaway.
