“Acknowledge what you have done and recommit to what you will do.” —Luci Lampe
Sexy is one of those words that is used in so many different ways with so many different meanings.
When Luci talks about creating the sexy life you desire, she’s talking about your most exciting life, the life where you are confident about what you are doing and comfortable in your own skin.
Now, there is no magic wand for this.
Creating the sexy life you desire takes intentional effort and personal awareness. As Luci shares, “We need to get out of the mentality that life is happening to us and that we cannot change it.”
In order to put in the intentional effort you have to know what you are working toward and the only way to do that is to create the vision that you want for your life. Start with these questions.
- What do I want from my life? As kids we used to dream all the time, as adults not so much. Knowing what you want allows you to create a plan to get there.
- What do I value in life? These values relate to your relationships, your parenting, your career and more.
- What are my non-negotiables? There are some things in your life that you will not bend on, what are they?
In answering these questions you will see where your current choices are (or aren’t) in alignment with the life that you desire.
If they are in alignment KEEP GOING!
If your choices are not in alignment, it’s time to make a change.
Once you have the vision you begin to see what steps you need to take in order to get there.
The other component in creating a sexy life? Personal awareness.
Too often you are going through the motions never stopping to take inventory of what’s happening right now. Make it a point to ask yourself these questions regularly.
- What is going on with me right now?
- What are my needs in this moment? In this season?
Maybe it starts with journal writing, maybe it’s sitting down with a cup of coffee or tea in the morning.
You know yourself better than anyone to determine your your needs and wants. You are a dynamic human being with different needs at different times. BUT unless you create the space and time to be aware, you are just going through the motions.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to create the sexy life you desire. Give yourself permission to carve out the time and space to answer these questions and then watch what happens in ALL areas of your life.
