I didn’t think men like this actually existed—and then I met one.
To say I was shocked is a grand understatement. He’s a gentle-hearted warrior. He’s like fire mixed with the softness of a gardenia-scented lily.
He’s not perfect (that would be boring as hell) but he’s real, authentic and vulnerable. I feel challenged, cherished and taken care of in ways I didn’t even think were possible. I can truly be myself. The roarin’ tender fierceness of my femininity doesn’t scare him—it inspires him. And suddenly, like pulses of lightning from deep inside my bones, I understand why every man I’ve been with before has not cut it for me.
I finally know what I deserve. I deserve a man who can meet me in the sweet spittin’ fires of soul. And you—you, wonderful goddess woman you—I bet you’re realizing what you deserve, too. It is my deepest hope that these words resonate with your luscious heart and remind you that there’s someone madly wonderful out there, who’s just dying to be with you. The real you.
There is nothing sexier than a man
Who knows how to traverse the juicy pathways of his own heart
A man who can stand to be called out on his sh*t
A man who, when you boldly ask him to be there,
Says yes—hell yes
And shows up beautifully,
With every ounce of his beating heart.
There is nothing more beautiful than a man
Who talks openly and passionately about what’s on his mind
Rather than pulling far away and glossing it over
With a bullish*t generic response of
There is nothing more breathtaking in the world than a man
Who knows the salty taste of tears
A man who lets you see him on his worst days
Vulnerability hanging out of his split-open heart like ripped ribbons.
There is nothing more bone-suckin’ delicious than a man
Who knows how to take care of a woman,
How to touch her softly and fiercely at the same time
How to f*ck her wildly while gazing gently into the sapphire depths of her soul
How to set her free while claiming her
And make her feel like a cherished jewel of divinity,
Like the goddess she is.
There is absolutely nothing more astounding than a man
Who kisses like he could die five minutes from now
A man who understands the gem preciousness of this breath
This inhale…and exhale…
A man who wants nothing more
Than to face the world together
As you both smile,
Set the air around you on delicate fire
And ascend towards nectar galaxies far too beautiful to comprehend.
There is nothing more maddeningly magnificent than a man
Who pulls you close and declares his love for you
And shouts it from the rooftops like music
And weaves his fingers through yours with ripe enthusiasm
And isn’t scared to call you too soon
And call you out on your sh*t
And call you
The luscious love of
There is nothing more goddamn gorgeous than a man
Who is fiercely himself
Who holds the strongest heart space
In his warm, sultry embrace
For you to bloom
As he does the same.
At the end of every dissolving sands, apricot sunset-soaked day—there is nothing sexier than a man
Who knows how to love himself.
A man who values the truth running through his veins like sacred ink.
A man brave enough to be there for you—and himself—when sh*t is beautiful and when it’s completely falling apart.
This is the kind of man you deserve.
A man who isn’t afraid of emotion.
A man who shows up one hundred percent.
A man who is ready—who craves—every drop, drip and ounce of an authentic, earthy goddess of a wonderful woman like you.
Let him kiss you with his entire being until you remember who you really are.
Don’t settle down with him—
Into a more luscious, technicolor life
A life so beautiful it hurts sometimes.
A life so fulfilling you’ll never be thirsty again.
A life so freeing and spun of soul it makes you dizzy.
Anything less than this
Heartfelt, present, purely sacred beauty
Is a goddamn
‘Cause when the divine masculine meets the divine feminine, magic happens.
The sweetest magic of all.
Are you ready for it?
