Resolutions 3

My domestic goals are short and sweet.

  1. Do not go to bed with dirty dishes piled in the sink. Dishes are to be washed before bedtime.
  2. Pick up all rooms on a daily basis so that weekend cleaning does not take hours.
  3. Make the bed daily when I get home from work.
  4. Prepare more meals that left overs can be frozen for additional meals later.
  5. Learn about canning.

New Year's Meme

I’ve seen this floating around and thought I’d add my own thoughts:

Went to a porn shop. I’ve not been afraid to, just never had the desire. Now I think Master and I go just as frequently as any other specialty store.

2. Did you keep your New Year’s Resolutions, and will you make more for next year?

No, I didn’t keep last year’s resolutions and there are more set for this year. Hopefully these will be easier to keep.

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?

From My Bottom Smarts

What do you believe constitutes “topping from the bottom?” Have you or your partner ever done this? If so, how was the situation handled? Are there occasions where “topping from the bottom” is acceptable or even desirable?

My definition of topping from the bottom is when the submissive begins to instruct the dominant during an exchange. It could be as simple as overriding instructions to take the next exit to declining to do something sexual.

Sadly I do this a lot and it gets very frustrating for Master. Usually this involves a very stern look, but it could lead to more punishment for bad behavior. I do have to do my proper apology also. It’s very humiliating to have to do this in public places.

There could be occasions where topping from the bottom is acceptable and those are times where the submissive is more experienced than the dominant and he has asked for instructions on how to do something. Also in rare occasions where the dominant is the masochist, it is almost always needed to top from the bottom so that the dominant gets what they need from the submissive who would be causing the desired pain.

Resolutions 2

My submission resolutions are going to be where my hardest work is I think. Master has noted that he wants to be more strict and to get the rules I have adhered to better. I’ve been slacking and so has he. So my first goal is to improve my obedience to the rules he has set.

My next goal is to seek learning and training that will benefit my Master. This could be learning a bit of massage, table service, practicing oral sex techniques and maybe learning about historical service like geisha, English maid service or courtesan lifestyles. It could provide and enhance the ritual and routine that Master is seeking.

Lastly I have a goal of making sure the purpose of this blog does not go too far off course. Master wants this journal to be personal, about my submission and struggles with training and less about the meme’s and general chit chat that seems to take over on occasion. It’s going to be hard, but I know that I can be more introspective than I have of late.


Every week there will be a BDSM question posed to readers here at luna’s Journey. Feel free to answer it as candidly as you’d like. If you’d like to participate in the discussion please leave a comment on this post, send me an email or post the response on your own blog!

How polite are you? Where did you learn your social etiquette? What rules do you have in your relationship regarding p’s and q’s?

Resolutions 1

Master suggested that I think about some resolutions for next year, some goals I’d like to set for myself. I’ve been giving it some serious thought. I am hoping to have more desire to reach these goals than I did with last years. They kinda just fell away and I forgot them. Definitely not what I want to do this year.

I’ve divided my resolutions into 3 different groups; personal, submission and domestic. Today I’d like to talk about the personal goals I’d like to set.

My diet is an obvious one. I’m still continuing on trying to lose the excess weight that affects almost everything I do and how I feel about myself. My main purpose is to eat healthier and to become more active. I know that I will lose weight if I can achieve these two.

I’d like to learn to take more time for personal grooming. If I care more about myself then I think I’ll have a better outlook on life, be encouraged by changes in my body and enjoy caring for Master’s property.

Finally, I’d like to pick up crafting again. I’m more at peace when I’m creating things; whether it be poetry or stitching or kinky crafts. I’d like to ultimately set aside time every week to create.

So, these are the beginning of what I’d like to have successfully achieved by next year. Master has said that he is going to be doing some changing as well, so I have to be prepared to shift with him. He wants a more strict house and I will have to learn to be more obedient or face the consequences. It’s not going to be easy but I know we can continue to develop and grow together to our ultimate dream.
