FFF 2.0 5-26 & More Mainstream BDSM

Ok, it’s Sunday Monday, not Friday. I knew that. I guess I could change the initials to match the day – SFF MFF? But then it sounds completely different, and never mind. It’s not that big a deal, I think.

My ankle is better – almost 100%. I did a long beach walk today yesterday and that was nice. It’s Suddenly Summer here so my beach excursions are going to be earlier in the morning, which I also like.

My step count was about 4,500 this week, and my scale is hitting the low side of my range at 167. I’m still a short chunky woman, but not feeling terrible about it today.

I haven’t set my new goals yet, it seems like lots of my time is getting sucked into some domestic black hole, which is also not bad. But maybe not so good for me. I have a plan I’ve been trying to use for my business and the last item on it is the write myself a permission slip for something I need that I have a hard time letting myself do. My slip says olivia has permission to put her business’ needs before other people’s wants. But I keep forgetting.

I’m still dabbling with other things that I’ve talked about before. Finger tapping. Energy work. Even chakras. Meditating more. And enjoying it mostly.

I’m trying to flow instead of fight or flee myself. I remember this quote from Carl Rogers:

“The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change.”

But on the lighter side – I ran across this article about one of my favorite TV characters. Morticia Addams. I have always loved Morticia – and Gomez, of course. I used to have a peacock chair like hers and felt ever so cool sitting in it.

Too cool for school…

Anyhow, this article is called From feminism to BDSM: the powerful life lessons Morticia Addams taught us and was saying:

But, if you sit and watch the films in their entirety (and you should definitely do so, because they’re both insanely good), then it quickly becomes apparent that Morticia is the fully-actualised matriarch of our dreams.

Why? Because she’s smart, confident and more than capable of rescuing herself from danger, thank you very much. Because she’s sexually liberated – incredibly so – and ½ of a healthy BDSM relationship. Because she’s non-judgemental of other women and passionate about pursuing her dreams (all while acknowledging how difficult it is for any “modern woman trying to have it all”). And because she’s 100% dedicated to her goal of empowering her daughter, Wednesday, with the tools she needs for adulthood.

In short, she’s a total queen, and we couldn’t love her more. So, to celebrate her badassery, here are just some of the life lessons that Morticia has taught us over the years…

Full disclosure, I haven’t watched the Addams Family films (I know, I know…) but it’s a fun article. And another look at how some BDSM concepts are portrayed in film.
