Personalizing Your Values

Of course, every woman is different, and so are her values. We encourage you to experiment with your values and make up words that suit you best. You can even put words together to describe your own unique view of life.

For instance, we know one mother who has a value she calls “wide margins” – an image that reminds her to schedule her time very loosely so that she can be spontaneous and flexible, no matter whatrepparttar day might bring. Another mom we know made up a value called “bees and honey” that helps her remember to create, cherish, and harvestrepparttar 147464 sweetness of life. There are no rules about how your values should look or sound; what matters is that they speak to you about what’s most important in your life.

Understanding Your Values

To really make your values a part of your life, it’s important to think about what each one means to you. How does each value show up in your life? The value of “spirituality” may mean going to church for one person, spending time in meditation for another, and walking inrepparttar 147465 woods for another. You and your best friend might both have a value around “family,” but one of you might mean spending quiet time at home whilerepparttar 147466 other means creating boisterous, house-filling reunions. Takingrepparttar 147467 time to connect to what your values mean to you makes them yours instead of just a list of words.

Living Your Values

With a new, clearer sense of your values, you make it possible to live according to what really matters to you. Try on your values for size. Live your life from a new point of view. How would your approach to motherhood change if you always lived according to your values? What would be harder? What would be easier? What new decisions would you make? Experiment with your values for a few weeks. See what new insights they bring you. We call this living your values, and it’s one ofrepparttar 147468 most powerful things you can do to find balance in motherhood.

When you become a mother, it’s important to be ready for some changes. Althoughrepparttar 147469 specific things that are important to you may change after your baby is born, your values endure. As your life, your schedule, your habits, and your relationships change, you can align them with your values in new ways that suit your new life without shakingrepparttar 147470 core of who you really are. Your values allow you to keep your identity and maintain what is intrinsic to your happiness, despite all ofrepparttar 147471 changes life (and especially motherhood) can bring. And that’s one solid foundation for motherhood.

Lesson 3: Don't Be Afraid To Experiment:

Experimenting is good, so you should do it whenever you feel like it. If you want to try something new, then go for it. As long as it wont cause you any physical pain or damage then try it, you never know what you might discover.

Lesson 4: Create An Atmosphere:

Creating an atmosphere can (And should be) distracting. By this I mean, it should make you feel as though you are in a state of complete relaxation.

How can this be achieved? Easy.

Just put on a soft music cd and perhaps light some scented candles. This is a sure way to put you in a comfortable place.

Lesson 5: Relax, It's Not A Race:

Some people think that they HAVE to have an orgasm while masturbating. Well that's simple not true. Masturbation is about pleasuring yourself.

Orgasms arerepparttar climax i.e.repparttar 147310 highest point of pleasure during sexual activity, but they are not necessary. There's nothing wrong with you if you don't have an orgasm for a very long time, if at all your first few times.

Just concentrate on how nice it feels and if you have an orgasm, great, but if you don't then don't worry yourself about it, you can always try again later. It's not a big deal.

In time you will know what you like and how you like it, then you can just repeat, over and over again : )
