Get Your Sexy On
Own Your Beauty is a groundbreaking, year-long movement bringing women together to change the conversation about what beauty means. Our mission: to encourage and remind grown women that it is never too late to learn to love one's self and influence the lives of those around us - our mothers, friends, children, neighbors. We can shift our minds and hearts and change the path we follow in the pursuit of authentic beauty.
It's funny...in all my struggles with weight, body image and confidence, one thing has NEVER been a problem.
I feel sexy.
I'm not saying I am sexy or that I have a body that others would find sexy. I just feel great when I can drop it like it's hot, put on some fishnets and heels and really get lost in the music.
And just FYI? I don't think sexy is the same as sex-y. As in, a gateway or precursor to sex.
Sexy is a feeling -- up there with happy, fulfilled, confident. Sexy is for YOU and for nobody else.
It doesn't matter if you're young or old; single or married; skinny or curvy. I get my sexy on in weekly hip hop dance classes, but that's more about grooving and getting a great cardio workout. When I heard about a special Burlesque event at Studio K in Orlando, designed to help us learn a few new sexy moves, I knew it would be a blast.
Step 1: Get into character.
Step 3. Accessorize with a feather boa.
Step 4. Dance like nobody's watching.
Step 5. After Step 4, when you realize that there are cameras and video cameras all around and people are, in fact, watching, shake what your mama gave you. (Thanks, StarStrukLynna.)
There's nothing special about me or my dance moves -- I'm often one of the least experienced in class, and I have very little natural talent. My body is not exactly best showcased in hot pants and stripper heels or particularly built for burlesque dancing. I just allow myself to truly embrace the moment, and appreciate that sexy comes from the inside.
What does sexy mean to you? How do you find that inner goddess?
