“Elegance is the only beauty that never fades” – Audrey Hepburn
What does it mean to be “classy“?
The question that many women have wondered about so aimlessly and a term that is
We have come to a point in time where elegant and classy women are few and far to come by and here is why:
So what’s the reason for this?
Let me further explain before you jump down my throat. There is the positive feminism of olden days where women fought for the right to be politically equal, the right to be able to decide for themselves, equal rights in the workplace and the right for their opinion to be heard on the same level as a man. I’m all for that!
There is today’s current state of feminism where being “vulgar” “skanky” is considered empowering. It’s all over social media and it’s definitely all in the music that we let our kids listen too. We have celebrities like Cardi B and Nicki Minaj rapping about sex, money, and drugs while wearing things that you wouldn’t wear to church.
Confused women that we have stuck on a silver platter in order to destroy our future children’s perspectives on love, family, and most importantly God’s beautiful design for their lives.
How do we make the change?
Begin by teaching our daughters and ourselves that we are more valuable than the images being portrayed for us to idolize:
1.) First and foremost hold yourself at high value.
“You need not apologize for being brilliant, talented, gorgeous, rich, or smart.” –Marianne Williamson
2.) Take responsibility for your actions.
“The victim mindset dilutes the human potential. By not accepting personal responsibility for our circumstances, we greatly reduce our power to change them.”
3.) Carry yourself with confidence.
“If you hear a voice within you say ‘you cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” –Vincent Van Gogh
4.) Be honest; but respectful.
“Honesty is the best policy” – Benjamin Franklin
“Give to every other human being every right that you claim for yourself.” –Thomas Paine
5.) Be forgiving.
“There is no love without forgiveness and there is not forgiveness without love” – Brian H. McGill
6.) Let LOVE flow through you.
“To love in spite of is the secret of greatness and very well be the greatest secret in this universe.” – L. Ron Hubbard
Yep, that’s it ladies class is all about what is on the inside.
How you carry yourself mind, body, and soul will speak volumes to the world around you and will be everlasting for generations to come. The outward will follow.
