More Ways to Play


Did you have a play date last week? If so, how was it? If not, what got in the way? It’s easy to let the days pass without taking any action other than thinking about playing. If you thought about playing, what did you think? What story did you tell yourself about play and about why you weren’t going to make play a priority? The stories we tell ourselves are what shape our experiences. So this week, let’s make up a story.

If you were to call me up next week and tell me about how you played this week, what would your story say? Pretend that you’ve already played and had a really great time, and now you get to relive the play by sharing it…

Here’s a possible story ~

Last Saturday afternoon I went to several yard sales. I was in search of some slinky lingerie so that I could dress up and feel sexy. The first place I stopped had some feather boas in different colors. There was a red boa, a black boa and a white boa. I couldn’t decide which one I liked best so I bought all 3 of them. The feathers were soft and I loved the colors.

The next place I went to had some really cool red cowgirl boots. I love boots and these were my size, so I snapped them up, thinking that they’d be fun with the boas.

My next stop yielded some big crystal drop earrings and a full-length black satin robe that was a little clingy. The satin felt really good on my skin and it was only $5, so I got that.

I went back home thrilled with my purchases. I also bought some beautiful champagne flutes and a cut glass plate, thinking that I might like some champagne and strawberries in my sexy scene. I had a bottle of bubbly in the fridge and stopped at the farmers market for some fresh strawberries.

Before I donned my purchases, I decided to put on some make-up. I don’t usually wear make-up, so I decided to have some fun. I put on smoky eye shadow, dark eyeliner, two coats of black mascara, some blush and some red lipstick.  Out came the curling iron and I did my hair to look sexy, with lots of waves.

I put on the boots, robe, boas (all three of them!) and the earrings. I felt like a million bucks and when I looked in the mirror, I saw a very sexy woman. I poured myself a glass of champagne and put three big ripe strawberries on the plate. Then I put on some music with a slinky beat. I danced around the living room sipping champagne, nibbling strawberries and saying to myself, “I am one Sensual Babe.” I had the best day and evening.

What’s your story? Go ahead, let your imagination go and have some fun! Share your story with us so we can celebrate you with you!
