how I celebrated international women's day...or not

I didn’t celebrate international women’s day. Or rather, I didn’t actively celebrate. I read all my friends’ message on Facebook, I reposted a few things about fabulous women we should know, I talked to a few women friends, my daughter, my mom. But not mindfully. I didn’t make my own post. I don’t think I mentioned it to anyone out loud. And then I got up this morning and chatted with a friend who was telling me how she celebrated…and I was like, Oh. Oops. Maybe I’m a bad woman, maybe I should be turning in my empowered feminist woman badge. But hey, I don’t want to go down that rabbit hole. I can appreciate that some days are better than others, that some days my best is better than it is

let it be dorky and hot

“Let it be dorky and hot.” My brain just cannot let go of these words shared by sex educator Felice Shays at the Playground 2018 Conference recently. And they pretty much sum up my conference experience. While the ‘it’ was specifically about rough sex (check back soon for more on that), the lesson here is about life. “Let yourself be dorky and hot.” I could live the rest of my life by these words. Giving myself permission to be my own original dorky self, embracing dorky as good and real and worth celebrating. When I celebrate my dorkiness, I give myself permission to explore, to make a mistake, to try something new. I can ask questions, admit I don’t know something, and say what I’m thinkin
