Just What She Needed May 22, 2013

She stood at the sink lost deep in thought. It had been a long, rough day and she could feel the tension in her shoulders. She took two deep, cleansing breathes and tried to relax. Just as she inhaled one more deep breathe, she felt, rather than heard, his presence in the room. It was as if the air itself paused when he walked in.

She closed her eyes in anticipation. He didn’t disappoint. A moment later she felt his warm breathe on the back of her neck. With one gentle finger, he traced the contours of her spine from her neck to the small of her back. She shivered as his finger retraced the same path just as his lips found the sweet spot on her neck. She leaned back against him as she felt the tension leave her body. He wrapped his arms around her waist and gave her a gentle hug as he planted butterfly kisses up and down her neck. The stubble on his face tickled and made her giggle and squirm. With one swift motion he spun her around and pinned her against the counter as his mouth found hers. Her giggles turned to moans as he made her forget about the day.

He always seemed to know just what she needed.


P.S. I always read the WordPress “Recommended Tags” because sometimes they are ridiculous. This time made me laugh. One tag was “kiss”. Okay, that’s appropriate. The next one was “halitosis”. BAHAHAHA! 🙂 Makes me laugh!


Inner Beauty May 3, 2012

Why do I look for beauty in the world? Because I cannot find it in me. I don’t mean physical looks that society judges us on. I am average looking, I guess, by most standards. Nothing to brag about, but you wouldn’t run screaming in fright if you saw me on the streets, either. No, you probably wouldn’t notice me at all. Like I said, average.

The beauty I’m referring to is inner beauty. Inner beauty is that glow that seems to come from certain people who are sure of their place in the world. They are the ones who fit comfortably in their own skin and move easily in and out of various groups of people. Inner beauty shines from these self-assured people like some type of personal sun. They are not braggers, or know-it-alls; they simple are comfortable in who they are and what they are doing in life. True self-confidence is the sexiest kind of beauty anyone could have. There is a fine line, however, between cocky and self-confidence. When you are self-confident, you have no need to put others down or brag about your greatness. You are happy to just be. Cocky, however, needs to strut and brag like a rooster.

Inner beauty cannot be bought or faked, but it can be developed. That is one of my personal goals: to develop enough self-confidence that I can look at myself and see that beauty from within. How do I do that? Just like anything else in life: set small goals and work to obtain each one. Right now, I am working on creating more time for me to develop my artistic side. I enjoy creating art, snapping photographs, and writing. These areas are things I can be proud of and gain more confidence as I create more and more.
