The Juicy LifeComments Off on The Juicy Life
Lately I’ve been using the term “juicy” quite a bit – and usually get a bit of reaction whenever I do.
Some people seem to love the word – and others are completely repulsed by it. Interesting, huh?
For me, living juicy means I take risks, trust my intuition, follow my curiosity and give myself the permission to get off track once in a while as I explore, get lost — and find my way again.
Juicy means I don’t always follow the rules, traditions or expectations of those around me. I march to my own drum beat.

Juicy means I embrace my fun, playful, feminine sexual energy – and tend to my needs and desires.
