Words of Wisdom No. 22

This month’s Word’s of Wisdom comes from a gentleman’s philosophy on the characteristics of a lady.

Is there anything more inspiring than to be reminded perhaps not just by the women around us, but by the gentlemen in our presence that we are created beautiful and feminine?  Composing this post was a powerful reminder for me of my responsibility to be more feminine and graceful not only in my actions and words but in my thought processes.  As the old adage goes: ‘what a man thinketh – that shall he be.’

May you be inspired by the simple, gentle yet oh-so-powerful reminders that you are created feminine, lovely and intelligent.

God is the ultimate gentleman. He’s always opening doors for you and putting you first.

Embrace the struggle – don’t avoid it … that’s how you win.

LADIES’ TIP: Someone’s pretty doesn’t take away from your beauty – confident women always embrace other women.

Sometimes you gotta get your own flowers – don’t wait on someone to love you before you do.

God is in control … nothing is coincidence.

Reaching success on your “own” doesn’t make you self-made – God was present the whole time whether you acknowledge Him or not.

If you wouldn’t be friends out of the relationship, you have no business being in the relationship.

If being with him/her minimizes your potential, leave – it’s just that simple. Your relationship should propel you.

Some women compromise with the idea that they can change a man down the line … May God be with you.

LADIES’ TIP: Not all compliments come with agendas – relax, he was being nice.

You have a 100% chance of success when you do it God’s way.

Let no one push you into a marriage – a lifetime decision requires prayer, not pressure.

Isn’t God good? Just sit back & think about how much He loves you … overwhelming.

Disciplined people submit their emotions to wisdom.

Your impact should be greater than your image.

Failure is far more respected than not trying.

When a lady says she wants a good guy but dates the bad boy – it’s likely because she hasn’t met a balanced gentleman.

When you focus on all your blessings and the good people around you, there’s nothing to complain about. Nothing.

LADIES’ TIP: Distance yourselves from random bitter man-hating women or you will become one.

Cover your ears & open your eyes – people will always speak with their actions … Always.

Today I woke up thanking God for another opportunity to wake up and thank God. Today will be a good day … it always is.

    Everything you’ve said here is so True. Thank you for sharing this post with us, and I’m especially grateful that God is generously given the credit for what we can become with His help. Without Him, we are nothing. I always love your beautiful pictures. The beautiful women ((always modestly dressed) inspire me to be more graceful and feminine.
