ARE you tired of setting aside what you want in return for what you have to do?
ARE YOU sick of having to make sacrifices for others?
ARE YOU weary of denying yourself and your own needs to take care of others and go through day after day of thankless routines?
ARE you unfulfilled because you feel burdened with everyone's expectations of you?
WELL... YOU CAN STOP pleasuring others and learn to pleasure yourself! After all, it's the right thing to do!!!! HOWEVER!!!!!!!!!!! I am not suggesting that you stop being responsible for your kids or divorce your wife or ignore your elderly mum etc etc. I am saying "pleasuring" yourself occasionally and making yourself feel HAPPY, SEXY, ALIVE and in love with yourself - no matter how difficult it is!!
*****Pleasuring yourself refers to the kind of pleasure and happiness that derives from saying yes to yourself and doing what you want to do. I don't mean THAT kind of pleasure, so if you are some pervert, please close this window. TYVM!*****
Pleasure means different things to different people.
To me, pleasure is : TO SAY YES TO MY WANTS AND NEEDS!!! Pleasure is to be happy. Pleasure is to tune to the sound in my heart.
It is to enjoy another's company even though no words are exchanged.
It is to take that bite of creamy, soft haagen dazs 'Rum & Raisin' ice cream.
It is that kiss your bf / hubby gently plants on your forehead.
It is as simple as indulging yourself on a cupcake or 2!!
Pleasure is found in doing a kind deed and seeing that smile and hearing the whispered - “Thank you.”
It is buying that sexy piece of lingerie from www.simplyintimate.com.sg for yourself. Well, you have worked hard at the GYM so why not?!!!
(I ordered my lingerie pieces last week before they started this anniversary sale. *pouts* WHY YOU NO START your SALE EARLIER?!!??!?!)It's their 5th Birthday & they're celebrating it with an exclusive anniversary sale..

It is saying YES, I have weaknesses too... and acknowledging that you actually SUCK at doing household chores. (●ゝω)ノHi-5ヽ(∀＜●) if you are like me hahahahah ~
It is looking through old photographs and remembering how that person made you feel at that moment.
It is slow dancing with your dog when no one's watching. （＾＿−）winkwink!
It is saying YES to treating yourself to a GOOD MEAL after all the dieting and stupid exercises that bore you to death. ( Okok... I shall admit that some exercise bores me to death.. )
It is saying YES to wearing that new push up bra, for no reason, and just because you feel like it!
It is saying YES to quirky dressing, just because it makes you feel like a DOLL!

It is saying YES to a wonderful offer and not feel affected because your boss thinks you are doing a much better job than the others who have been in the company WAY longer than you!
It is saying YES to offers of help when you truly need it!
It is saying YES to acknowledging that you need a break from work. This acknowledgement is vital in assisting you to become less stress, less anxious and less scattered.
It is saying YES to spending more time sleeping instead of staying up all night!
It is saying YES to LIVING YOUR LIFE but please please DO NOT BE CONCEITED and reckless when you make the choice to say YES!
( Okok... exaggerating here. (ˆµˆ)hehheh )
It is saying YES to taking better care of your face and making sure that you apply YOUR FACIAL MASKS regularly!!!!!!!!
It is saying YES to be open to learning something new.
It is saying YES to spending more time at home than in the office, just because you do not want to miss out on your kid's growth.
It is saying YES to your boss when he suggests that you start clearing your leave just because you do not want to regret working so hard and trading in your health in exchange for recognition and monetary gain.
It is saying YES to press 'PAUSE' and stop to smell the roses.
When you start saying yes, you get to enjoy the simple pleasures in life; you get to experience new opportunities; you start to understand who you truly are; and you'll DEFINITELY be amazed by how much pleasure helps you connect to yourself.
Soon, you'll realise you feel more inner peace. You'll carry a sense of calm confidence wherever you go. You'll feel fulfilled when you learn to pleasure yourself.
And you would be able to have the ability to feel full control over your thoughts, your actions and your life.
The key to this door is in your hands, people!
The pleasure can be all YOURS!!!!
