Things To Do… If You’re Single on Valentine’s Day

14 02 2009

 Go out and buy some of the steamiest lingerie you can find, complete with whatever you love best- wild animal print, sweet ruffles and lace, or some saucy vinyl pieces. Wear it, and your smile will have a little extra.

 Dress up for the occasion. Paint a glittery pink heart on your cheek, wear fluttery false lashes, slip into your favorite jeans.

 Paint your tips and toes heart-stopping candy-apple red. (I did this today!) Flash them at everyone you see.

 Call someone near and dear to your heart, mother/sister/best friend, and tell them how much they mean to you.

 Spend the day doing something just for you. Begin a quilt, go to the zoo, ride up and down the mall escalators, paint something lovely. Anything that makes you happy, do it with gusto.

 Finish your fantastic day with a luxurious bubble bath and your favorite foods.  Being single only means that you haven’t met the love of your life yet, and therefore have more opportunity to flirt shamelessly with any and all who cross your path!

Nerd tidbit: Wearing red makes men automatically think you’re more attractive. Hmmm…

The Perfect Day

31 01 2009

Imagination is a wonderful thing and should be used with relish every day. Here are the rules; anything is possible. Defy gravity and physics. Don’t be afraid to spoil yourself madly. As long as you feel happier, more hopeful and more relaxed after coming out of a daydream, you’re doing it right!

My perfect day goes something like this. I wake up from my silk-sheeted bed and throw open the doors to my closet, which has its own zipcode. After running gleefully through a field of blossoming cherry trees and four-leaf clovers with a chocolate-banana smoothie in my hands, I go for a ride on my beautiful horse Missie, who has somehow sprouted wings! Then it’s off to a hidden lagoon all my own where the water is blue and warm, and jeweled parrots sing in the trees.

I recommend a fantasy every day to keep the doctor away. It keeps your creative side oiled up and keeps stress away. Incidentally, if you’re like me and quote sleep as one of your top-ten ways to spend an hour, investigate lucid dreaming. I’ve managed to do this a time or two and it’s incredibly liberating.
