Giving Yourself Permission
Often it is way too easy to get bogged down with responsibilities and the everyday duties of life. It seems that after getting done all the things we have to do, and the majority of what we feel we should do, there is little time left to experience the things we really want to do. Sometimes we, no matter who we are, where we live or what our lifestyle entails, require a little jolt to shake and wake us up to the fact that we have a whole world of wonder to enjoy and explore. There are endless opportunities to seize, creative play to dabble in and time to spend doing nothing in particular other than appreciating and savoring this very moment -to just BE.
Ultimately most of what we put so much painstakingly serious stock in, worry about, fret for and brood over, is fleeting and trivial in the grand scheme of what we really wish to do. While it’s commendable and well worth living with purpose and putting effort into our personal pursuits, there is nothing wrong with taking a free pass to actually take some time for whatever you wish.
Even as a prick tease, femdomme mistress, I only have the power to implore you to liberate yourself since only we can give ourselves permission to be free enough to engage in our existence fully and beyond the daily grind, even if it doesn’t feel like that is the case. A little dash of hedonism is as essential as air. That’s why we do all that we must and all that we feel we are suppose to: So that we can have time to relish the fruit of our labors. It’s not forbidden to actually take a bit out of the life we scurry and scour to create.
So why not? Take the afternoon off, stay up late, eat, drink and be merry, howl at the moon, and expand those horizons that have felt closed off for much too long. All you have to do is grant yourself permission to pamper yourself, & go on a little excursion from the everyday.
I’d love to know what adventures you delve into. Feel free to share.
Great post Ms. Fiona, and you are so right… we all need to just relax and feel free to enjoy our greatest pleasures sometimes! For many, that does include giving ourselves permission to really enjoy ourselves. And when it comes to our submissive guys, yes getting permission from someone such as yourself makes it that much sweeter!
Thank you! It’s amazing how easy it is to forget to stop and enjoy the moment. Especially in such a fast paced world. 😉
THIS! I love it. Sometimes, we just need to stop the wild ride and breathe a little. (The permission slip is a nice touch, by the way!) Everyone needs to take the time for rest and relaxation. When we let that time fall by the wayside, we become depleted and then other things start to suffer. Our relationships, our jobs, the love we have for our hobbies and even the fun in our social lives….it can all get sucked out by the stress of not taking the time to chill out and live life, breathing and recharging. Thank you, Miss Fiona!
So happy you enjoyed it! It’s funny since as I was writing it I’m trying to take my own advice and just relax. 😀
…Give ourselves permission to cum, perhaps? 😉 hehe
Sometimes -just sometimes even subbie pets needs permission -yes 😉
Ms.Fiona, One might be surprised by how little time we spend doing things we love most. I think keeping a detailed diary for a few days of everything that we do will remind us of what where not having time for. All of what you mentioned is so true we do need to give our-self permission to simply relax and digress.
You are so right pretty lady! A diary is a great idea BTW 😉
I feel more rested just reading this. Excellent post, Ms Fiona. This world is fast paced indeed and it is all too easy to get caught up in it. Suddenly we look around and realize we have not done anything really fun in too long. I trust this posting will motivate a lot of guys to take more time for themselves…and howl!
Thank you beautiful! I hope it does. 🙂
This is an excellent reminder, Ms. Fiona, of the importance of the famous quote by writer and cartoonist Allen Saunders (and so frequently and erroneously credited to the late John Lennon): “Life is what happens to us while we are busy making other plans.” It is SO very important that we all remember, especially amidst the hubbub of our daily routines, that none of us is guaranteed tomorrow – or even the very next second; therefore, it is crucial that we MAKE the time to do something for ourselves on a regular basis.
Happiness doesn’t have to cost a thing, and no price tag can be put on our mental well-being. Wonderful, wonderful post, Ms. Fiona! Thank you for that nudge that we ALL need from time to time. 🙂
That is a lovely quote gorgeous and I’m happy you enjoyed it 🙂
I think this post is definitely resonating with many of your readers, Ms. Fiona! We should all be nice to ourselves and treat ourselves with kindness and gentleness. Funny thing is, when we do take time out and take care of ourselves, deciding what is truly important is much easier–as is meeting those very important goals. 🙂
You are so right beautiful! Clarity is so much easier to attain when you are relaxed. 🙂
My favorite part of this post was the part where you basically said it’s not a sin to take a moment to enjoy the life we work so hard to create. That was heavy indeed. It is so easy to get caught up in keeping up that we forget the point of all the overdoing in the first place. Always take time to pamper yourself. If it’s good for the Mistress, it’s good for the sub.
🙂 That’s right darling relaxation and recreation is a universal healing balm.
wow! What a great reminder that we work hard, and need to play hard. Balance is always key in maintaining your mental health. I am taking a deep breath as I write to help clear my head and relax. What a lovely blog, Ms. Fiona. Thanks for pointing out that we can get too caught up in “things” instead of the moment. xxoo
Yes -playing hard for hard workers! Love it gorgeous 😉
Yes Ms Fiona you are so right. It is so easy to get burned out and not take the time we need and deserve to just chill and pamper ourselves. We need time to energize and plug back into who we are and where we are going. I really love this blog, nothing to do with fetishes and everything to do about life and reality. Great job!
Thank you so much doll! I hope I can remember to flow my own advice as well lol 🙂
I have to laugh at Whackoffboy’s comment, Ms. Fiona!
I do not think you intended to allow all the naughty strokers to cum!! I really love this idea! If I had that Permission Slip, I think I would go to a spa for a full day! It has been too long. I agree wholeheartedly with Ms. Cindy! I think we Mistresses do spend far too little time doing the things we most love to do for ourselves!! Great food for thought here!
LOL Yes, not the naughty ones -without the approval of their Mistress but any opportunity makes them jump at the chance. Poor little things HA! 😉
