I love combining work and pleasure, [First Name].
This week I had a client who wanted me to meet for an intensive in St Barth. Having never been there, I was delighted to say yes. I brought a small team of incredible facilitators with me, delivered an above-and-beyond, outrageously delicious, one-on-one workshop for my client, and then played hard on my free days.
I fell in love with St. Barths, enchanted by its beauty and intimacy.
Every passing day, the island opened up her secrets to me – revealing an array of individual beaches, each one more unique than the last.
We snorkeled between courses, feasting on fresh fish from paper plates at little, hole-in-the-wall restaurants along the coastline. We had so much fun at O’Corail on Grand Cul-de-Sac Beach, that the owners popped a bottle of homemade vanilla rum on our table…and yes, I drank two shots!
The island is French, so it felt like Paris at the beach – exquisite meals, beautiful shops, gorgeous men and women looking so chic in nothing more than flip flops and bikinis.
I felt like I was a work of art, inside of a living, breathing work of art.
We drove around the hills in a bright yellow mini moke and got to know the best places for sunrise, sunset, the perfect baguette and coffee, and of course, nightclubs with no curfew where we danced the night away.
I think my favorite part was the ongoing, continuous, full-on flirtation vibe that seemed to span the island.
Women, men, and children flirted with me, and with each other. I flirted with people who worked at the airport, in shops, with guests and staff at our hotel, with other beach goers, with travelers in line for Covid tests, and the pharmacists administering them.
It was as if, in St. Barths, the first language was flirtation, which allowed everything else to flow with so much ease and pleasure.
In case you didn’t know, the Womanly Art of Flirtation is actually the natural resting state for women.
Flirtation is a way that a woman can make her way in the world, with her passion fully engaged, her lights on, and her juices flowing.
Flirtation is all about enjoying yourself, for no apparent reason, other than it is fun to be a woman, and fun to have the power and ability to turn on. Flirtation is nothing more and nothing less than enjoying yourself in the presence of another person or persons.
Women were born to flirt. Flirtation is in our DNA.
I am so grateful to have spent a week on a glorious island where so many people are fluent in this language. People who would rather flirt than be on their cell phones. (Wow, right?!) I can’t wait to go back.
So, what am I bringing home with me from St. Barths? A new determination to flirt everywhere I go.
I will not shut down my game, even if I am with people who are not fluent in the language of flirting yet.
Are you in?
Are you flirting with me right now?
Because I am flirting with you…;-)
With so much love and pleasure,
