This I Know...

Since today is my birthday, I thought I'd combine two of my favorite things (pictures and words) in this post. I'm a woman trying to make my way in this world as a wife, mother, sister, friend, and professional (not an exhaustive list, but you get the picture). I've learned valuable lessons and cultivated some definite "isms" in my journey and with your indulgence, I'd like to share a few with you. I don't profess to know everything but, This I Know...

  1. It's never someone else's responsibility to make me happy but it's my duty not to allow someone else to make me miserable. 
  2. Not everyone deserves a front row seat in the play that is my life.
  3. Please and thank you are the quintessential bookends.
  4. Keeping up with the joneses is a misguided endeavor; it's likely the joneses aren't happy.
  5. Whether it's my intelligence, style, ambition, or desires, it's never worth "dumbing down" my abilities for someone else. 
  6. Pulling off a look is 95% attitude and 5 % everything else.
  7. Texting is great, but the tambor, expression, and tone of a voice (whether face to face or on the phone) is IRREPLACEABLE. 
  8. It's not always about me.
  9. Gentle persuasion is an art form to be mastered at various levels.
  10. Change is constant and I'd do better to embrace it.
  11. Be good to my body in thought, word, and deed.
  12. Approval seeking will always have me on someone else's schedule, thanks but no thanks.
  13. Being direct is not the same as being rude.
  14. Being secure means I can look at another woman, smile, and compliment her style.
  15. Less really is MORE.
  16. Attention seeking is a fruitless effort...they see you. 
  17. Hard work and a good attitude are the key to advancement. 
  18. A dynamic mentor can be a game changer.
  19. Know your worth in business, relationships, and life.
  20. One monkey don't stop no show.
  21. Forgiving is as much for you as it is for the person you're forgiving.
  22. Don't wait for someone else to do what you want to do...Just Do It.
  23. It's never weak to admit I need Him and him.
  24. Stay prayed up.
  25. Good friends and laughter are essential to my soul.
  26. A lady should always be two things...CLASSY and FABULOUS!
As always...thanks for reading!
