When is the last time you enjoyed a meal?  I mean REALLY enjoyed a meal?  Or a snack, or beverage, or whatever?  I know I don’t do it often enough.  We’re all so busy and rushed that we eat on the go and while sitting at our desks.  (I can’t tell you the last time I ate at my dining table!)  But food can be a truly sensual experience!

My inspiration for writing this came about two minutes ago.  I was eating a cupcake – the last of a four-pack of dark chocolate peanut butter cup cupcakes from Trader Joe’s.  Not peanut butter cup as in having peanut butter cups in them, but peanut butter cup as in a delicious, melt-in-your-mouth dark chocolate cupcake with a bit of creamy peanut butter inside, topped with a decadent dark chocolate ganache frosting and another dollop of peanut butter.  (If that sounds amazing to you, I urge you to NEVER BUY THEM!  They are addictive!  You will crave them to the point of waking up in the middle of the night and realizing that the world might as well come to an end because you’re out of cupcakes and it’s past 9pm, so Trader Joe’s is closed!)

So, anyway, I was eating my cupcake, and I realized it was the LAST one!  I’m starting a new food plan and exercise regimen in a couple of days, so I won’t be purchasing any more for quite some time.  So, I decided to step back from my desk to revel in the richness and relish the deliciousness of the cupcake.  Granted, it only took me about a minute and a half to eat it – bottom first, with my head tilted back and the cupcake over my face, so as not to drop even one divine morsel, then moving on to the top, with it’s exquisite combination of flavors and textures – but that minute and a half was worth savoring!

The point is, we pay so much attention to everything OUTSIDE of ourselves, that we forget how important the things are that go on INSIDE us.  The next time you come across something delicious, step away from the computer, turn off the television, and put down your phone.  Enjoy what you’re providing for your body!


About kelijackson

We’ve been taught for so long that our bodies are sinful. “Down there” is dirty. Sexual conversation is whispered, if discussed at all. Questions go unanswered. Negative perceptions remain uncorrected. Misconceptions run wild in the minds of women, men couples in our culture. That’s where we come in! We’re here to help shed the lies you’ve heard and grown to believe about your body, your sensuality, your sexuality, and intimacy within two of your most precious relationships: that with your partner, and perhaps more importantly, that with yourself. “We?” That’s right! I lead an international team of Passion Consultants called The Orgasm Factory. We are a movement of women, joining forces to help enhance the intimacy in those precious relationships all across the US and Canada. Do yourself a favor and ask yourself these questions: What would you do with an extra $1,000 a month? What if you could earn that extra $1,000 each month working an average of just one evening each week? What if that work consisted of having a blast, partying with other women, and helping to enhance their intimacy? What if, within your network of co-workers, you felt supported, encouraged, and were recognized for your accomplishments? What if you partnered with a company that rewarded you with BONUS CASH, luxury vacations, a company-paid car, and a ton of other prizes? What if your part-time job (or new career) consisted of making new friends and helping them to reach their goals and make their dreams come true? That’s what I do! That’s what I help my team to do! And you can join our team! I’ll personally train you, you’ll get training and support from our team, and you’ll have access to the incredible training opportunities Passion Parties Corporate provides for us! (I’ve had two training sessions with Dr. Drew! Corporate offers us the absolute BEST training imaginable!) So, CALL ME! (No. Seriously. Call me. You DEFINITELY want in on this.) I’ll help you get started, and I’ll be there for you every step of the way. I’ll have faith in you until you have faith in yourself. If you’re not sure, that’s ok. We can talk about it. I’ll answer all of your questions and give you all the information you want. If, after that, you’re still not sure, book a party and get all of the fabulous Hostess Rewards we offer, just for getting a few friends together and letting me or one of my team members show you what we’re all about! You’ll not only receive the benefits of being one of our hostesses, you’ll also have the opportunity to look at the business from inside the party. Then, we’ll talk again and see if it’s a good fit! Our mothers and grandmothers didn’t necessarily teach us everything we need to know about sex, and we certainly didn’t learn enough in school. When you host your own Passion Party, one of my team members or I will teach you and your friends how to discover the joy of enhancing the intimacy in those precious relationships! We’ll show you some of our absolute best products, from the mild to the wild, and help you find exactly what you need the most. All consultations are confidential, to ensure that everyone is comfortable. Your secrets will remain your secrets. You’ll laugh! You’ll learn! You’ll have a one-of-a-kind shopportunity to bring Passion to life! View all posts by kelijackson

    cupcakes = noms. i love that you said “food plan” and not “diet.” 🙂

    • kelijackson

      To me, the word “diet” just means “what you eat.” When people say they’re “on a diet” or that they’re “dieting,” it makes me think, “Well, yeah. Everyone has a diet.” Some choose to restrict themselves to everything they DON’T love from time to time. Others choose to consume 98% foods that would kill them if it weren’t for the other 2%. The word “diet” gets such a bad name, because everyone puts a negative connotation on it due to this culture of thin…thin…THIN!!! But “food plan” seems more logical. I’m planning out my meals for the week, making my grocery list, heading to the store, and preparing what I can ahead of time, so there are no excuses for diverting from the plan. Will there be times when I consume something I hadn’t planned? Yes. I’m sure of it. So, I’ll change the course a little bit. Currently, I’m in the pre-food plan stage, where I’m eating everything in my house in order to get rid of it, so my meals are SUPER weird! I considered skipping this stage and starting the food plan this week, but I’m attending a corporate training event this weekend and our local Passion team meeting is Monday, and we always go out for dinner and drinks after the meeting, so I decided to hold off until Tuesday.
