I have so much to say on this topic.
Hell, I may need to make it a podcast (more on that later).
It’s easy to talk about being Christian woman, about being a successful woman, and even about being a single mom.
Those are all socially acceptable topics that we all smile and nod approvingly about.
What about being sexy, too?
Where my clients get hung up is that it’s not acceptable – meaning, “society” doesn’t approve of being sexy unless you’re single, no children, young…and don’t even come close to adding the word “Christian” in that mix.
If you’re a single mom, you’re not supposed to be sexy.
If you’re a successful woman, you’re not supposed to be sexy.
If you’re a Christian woman…gasp…who do you think you are?
But guess what, ladies?
Sexy is possible in combination with Christian-Successful-Single Mom-40s.
I downplayed my own “sexy” for the first few years of being a single mom, because bringing my “sexy” out to play seemed to make married people uncomfortable.
But here’s the truth.
They weren’t uncomfortable.
I was uncomfortable.
Because I had this thought that – as a single, successful, Christian mom in her 40s – I had no business being sexy. That word alone brought up thoughts like promiscuity, Scarlet Letter A, inappropriate.
Until I challenged that thought and realized that “sexy” is completely neutral. It’s not good. It’s not bad. It’s whatever I want to think about it.
I choose to think of “sexy” as natural. As healthy. As confidence.
As part of the feminine experience.
What do you think about “sexy?”
I’d love to be your coach and help you find your “sexy.”
