Why can’t I ever do anything NORMAL on Thanksgiving?!

Yo, sisters.

It is I, your Queen–Queen of Pleasure, Queen of Eccentric Thanksgivings, Queen of Change–here to shower some gratitude and juice and inspiration all over you.
This year I am heading out to Montana, to celebrate Thanksgiving with my daughter, who is in boarding school.
And I am sitting next to my very very ex husband, who is also heading out to see our girl.
This goes on the list of things I never thought I would be doing.

Is this what normal looks like?

Last year, at this time, I was in NYC, hanging out with my tribe of girlfriends.
The year before? Having a clandestine encounter with a lover in Miami.
The year before that? With my beloved Pentti in LA, at his son’s house.
Before that? London with a girlfriend.
Why can’t I ever do anything normal for Thanksgiving?
I keep thinking I want to be normal. But it never turns out that way.
I think something in my body sees normal and runs in the opposite direction.
And for this I am grateful.

I follow my heart. My truth. My intuition. To the very best of my abilities. Just like you.
And when my desire opens a pathway, I throw my saddle astride the unknown and gallop in a whole new direction, guided and secured by being deeply rooted in the Womanly Arts, and the Tools of the Womanly Arts.
Just like you.

Steeped in the Tools and Arts.
Sometimes your whole new direction is celebrating this holiday in a place you could not have imagined.
Sometimes that new direction is being where you expected to be, but in a way you have never been before.
Listen to how Sister Goddess Leora is standing for her pleasure, inside her traditional family celebration…

I brag that I am leaving on Tuesday for Thanksgiving and I feel so relaxed and grounded as I enter the loony bin. My sisters are already sniping and behaving in really unhealthy ways. I am in my pleasure and intend to stay there. I brag that I desire to have a lovely time and to stay connected to my pussy at all times.”

She is heading for home, well armed with the Womanly Arts, to stay sane and happy for the holidays.  Or how about this from Sister Goddess Laura?

I brag that this year I finally remembered to do most of my charitable giving during the month of November when my company will match donations 100%.
I brag that I gave to a number of my favorite organizations–Room to Read, the Salvation Army, Komen Breast Cancer Society, Red Cross, Save the Children and Habitat for Humanity.
I brag that I gave generously and am so excited that each organization will get double the amount due to matching from my company!!”

She has learned that the best way to ensure her own happiness is to give generously to others, from her surplus. Making a beautiful Thanksgiving for herself, inspired by her own generosity, and for so many.

And this one, from Sister Goddess Veela, who has found that she can flick the switch from victim to courtesan in the moment she reaches for a Tool!

I brag I am HAPPY. More and more often I wake in the mornings with a big smile on my face. And when it’s not there, I am getting into the habit of creating it. I brag I self-pleasure nearly every day and sometimes two or three times (or more) in a day. And I listen to upbeat music (doing so right now, even!) and take dance breaks. And more and more often I have been catching myself when I’m about to stress out or lose my temper, and I remember to take deep breaths and to relax.”

That's more like it.

This brag fills me with joy.

This Sister Goddess community is a gigantic, ever-growing, ever-expanding happiness generator.

Whether you are utterly eccentric in your celebrations, like me, or utterly traditional, like Sister Goddess Leora, or utterly giving, like Sister Goddess Laura, you have the keys to your happiness in the palm of your hand…like Sister Goddess Veela.

I am so grateful to be part of this community of women who make ecstasy their reality.

With so much love and pleasure,
Mama Gena

    hi regina et al,
    re a very unusual breakthrough on TG…i finally accepted my former in-laws invitation to spend thanksgiving upstate at my ex-sister-in-law’s house in schenectady…beautiful decorations, great food, lots of laughter and song…who would have thought that joining my ex-husband’s family for thanksgiving would be a breakthrough on the one day of the year that, reclude that i am, i have nevertheless found to be a challenging day to spend alone since D-day in 2007. how brilliant i am to have stayed close friends with my ex. how many kinds of love i have in my life and how MUCH of it!
    best to you and yours…good luck to your little one. i’m sure she’ll enjoy all the excitement of boarding school. it’s an experience i always thought i would have enjoyed as a little girl. independence, autonomy and the chance to meet so many new friends.
    LOVE,
    SG Janet Shannon

    This year, I decided that Thanksgiving is my new High Holy Holiday and must be celebrated for three days in a row. To kick off the tradition, I conjured a tropical hideout for a gratitude honeymoon. I pussified the space and languored in erotic appreciation.I skipped the turkey and made elegant meals from what I picked from trees. Other than an exquisite gratitude call with my son, I made love alone throughout my Thanksgiving Visiting Dignitary. I stretched myself to see if I could play with all 90 SWA tools each day for three consecutive days.

    Well, I did it. Gurl, playing this deep with the tools has been so orgasmically elevating that I have to drop to my knees in speechless awe.

    Thank you La Divina, for the privilege of Woman, and for the exceptional opportunity to play in Sisterhood. Thank you Regena, for not being normal. Thank you for returning appreciation to a sensual feminine celebration of our own design.

    This was just what i needed to read after questioning myself for the lack of tradition & consistency in the 12 Thanksgivings since my divorce. Last year I was on a plane, the year before I was in ZImbabwe, one year most of us were in NYC, this year i made the entire meal (my first turkey ever…) for my 4 children and ex-hubbie and we had Thanksgiving dinner together.
    My favorite part of the day was my college age daughter reading me her nine page term paper titled: P-U-S-S-Y Earrings: How self-help books supplanted the women’s movement.
    You are inspiring a new generation!
    xx betsy

    OMG this is soooooo awsome! I feel the suck pulling me right back in! I desire an in-person refresher course!

    Happy Thanksgiving darling Mama Gena. Thank you for once again revealing your heart to us. I deeply respect your transparency. Kissies.

    Wishing all a peaceful holiday!
    I’ve decided to forgo a family gathering which would entail a six hour drive in crazy traffic.
    I am having a lovely, introspective, holiday on my own.
    Wished my beloved family members the best holiday, and you also.

  • Lovely Rita November 25, 2010, 11:09 am

    Awesome comments all you hot pink ladies! Tammi, great theme. Jeni fabulous brag. Jen, amazing guest list. Foxy, fabulous story. Kim, praise that GPS!
    Who would “settle” for a normal Thanksgiving? How many families are truly happy to be gathering today? (there are some) Obligation weighs so many down. I am uplifted by all of you who are rising above, and allowing happy celebrations to abound!
    Regena, have an excellent thankfulday with your daughter and her father.

  • Cynthia November 25, 2010, 10:58 am

    Happy Thanksgiving! Thank you, this blog is, your best , ever!

  • Tammi November 25, 2010, 10:35 am

    I am so grateful for your genius, for spreading glitter and feathers on the road less traveled by. It’s made all the difference. Heading into a Thanksgiving I decided upon a theme: Give generously, Love lavishly, Receive gratefully. See you soon.

  • Jeni Fujita November 25, 2010, 10:34 am

    I brag that this Thanksgiving as soon as my brother started giving his Nazi Thanksgiving orders, I lovingly told him that myself and my son would not be attending. I brag that instead we will be serving food at The Covenant House for homeless teens and their babies in New York City and later ordering take out and watching our favorite show together as we snuggle into the evening. I brag that I am honoring myself and what bring me pleasure by being honest with myself and others, whether anyone else likes it or not. I brag that I am clear about my desires and a Nazi Thanksgiving is NOT it.

    Happy Thursday!
    Love!
    Jeni

    Happy Thanksgiving beautiful delicious community and beautiful delicious Regena.

    I brag I just moved to a Tea Party town in “the middle finger of the South” (Indiana) and I have conjured 10 strangers to my house for T-day : 1 frenchman, 2 Japanese beauties, 1 South African goddess, a “Maina”, a Hungarian and a few other assorted fabulous freaks and geeks.
    I have cleared out a room for dancing and made enough raw chocolates to feed the Swiss Army.

    Thank God for bragging. Up until now I just felt a little pooped.
    Not anymore!!

    Have a delishicious day everyone

  • SG Foxy November 25, 2010, 10:15 am

    Thank you to YOU, Regena!

    How lucky (and amazing) am I to have found the SWA, and profoundly changed my life? To have been incredibly – and powerfully unconventionally – supported through the loss of my father, to have found new heights of physical pleasure and to know this is the beginning, to have conjured an incredible community of amazing women – to have learnt about conjuring! – to feel deeper depths and higher highs of joy, to drink afternoon tea with the sassiest bevvy of hot juicy females… How much am I grateful to you?

    To use the answer of my young niece, when I asked her how much I loved her – she considered silently, then said-
    ‘five.’

    It was her highest number at that time.

  • SG Kim K. November 25, 2010, 9:37 am

    Happy Thanksgiving Mama Gena- may you create a bunch of bliss even in Montana, even with your wasband around, but especially with your daughter!!

    My brag…. I was so inspired after the Sister Goddess Reunion in Miami that I decided to have a sister goddess gathering at my home for Thanksgiving. I set the intention of raising the bar for our recently evolved group named “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” to rise above the usual pettiness that can happen when a group of females get together. Of course, there’s always one in the bunch that starts to get catty. I kept my temper, sanity (and pleasure!!) when dealing with her issues- one of those trivial “I’m not coming if she’s coming” sort of grade-school issues. Well the GPS arranged everything perfectly for me. The most awesome group of women are due to arrive later this evening for a splendid, intimate Thanksgiving celebration. I see great things for the future of sisterhood in my little corner of the world. Wishing you all a wonder-FUL Thanksgiving.
