I got this very wise email from a woman I respect so much and I thought I should share it…
WISDOM FOR WOMEN!
Beauty attracts men, but wisdom keeps them.
Elegance catches men’s attention, but intelligence convinces them.
Nagging irritates men, but ‘constructive silence weakens men.
The boy in every man pumps out occasionally, your ability to handle this, is a woman’s truest maturity.
Men have secret struggles and silent pains, should you ever find them out, exhibit the greatest maturiy .
ln the long-run your ‘words’ matters more to a man than your ‘looks’, so invest the right words.
Earn a man’s respect and he will consider you the yard stick for all his action.
Learn to mold the moods of your man. Men will naturally give you their futures,
if they can recall your maturity in yesterday’s issues.
Women are every where, but queens are scarce.
Let the queen in you come alive and he will hold you in high esteem.
We have heard it over and over again that there is power in the tongue. But hey! the thing is, we hear so many things and even chant them, but how much of it do we actually internalize, how much of it do we understand? How much of the great things we hear do we actually make our guiding principles?
Your tongue and the words you speak are so powerful and highly effective – positively and negatively. See your words as seeds planted in the heart of those who hear it. Every day we communicate with people (in written or spoken words), we plant seeds that will definitely grow… seeds that will make or mar!
What seeds have you planted today?
I know it is generally believed that women speak three times more than men (I wonder how true that is…), so ladies please take special note of the seeds you sow! *winks*
Learn to add value with the words you speak. If you must say something, think before you open your mouth. And hey! who says you must say something anyway?
