🌸 The Top 10 Points of Lady Like Behavior, Are You Hitting All 10? 🌸


.

Over the years I’ve read many books from days long past which instructed young girls on how to become ladies because I, like nearly all women in our society, wasn’t taught how to be a real woman so in the early days I came up with this 10 point list. 

.

Now, I’m in no way claiming to be the perfect lady myself, becoming a better lady is something I’m constantly working on. None of us will always live up to all the points of lady like behavior all the time but we set the bar high to give us something to strive for and we allow grace to make up for the rest.

.

1. A lady does not gossip about others. She has a huge heart and responds to her friends, family and community dearly..

2. A lady takes a few moments in the morning to make herself bright, clean and fresh. She does not shuffle about the house in raggedy, old clothes all day nor does she neglect her appearance. A lady showers regularly, combs her hair, and wears soft, feminine clothing such as skirts and blouses.

.

3. A lady does not stomp or lumber about the house. She steps lightly and gracefully when she walks. She stands up straight, keeps her chin up, and her shoulders back. She is graceful and confident.

.

4. A lady remembers to smile and smile often; when doing this dishes, when driving the car, at home and on the job.

.

5. A lady does not curse or use vulgar sounding language. She speaks as properly as she is able and does not resort to slang or urban accents. She does not shout (whenever possible).

.

6. A lady does not proclaim herself to be a “b*tch” in a mistaken attempt to gain “empowerment.”

.

7. A lady does not argue or forcefully assert her opinions in an uncomfortable way when with her friends and family. Opinions may be shared, of course, as a matter of polite conversation but always with a smile.

.

8. A lady eats slowly, chews her food completely and does not speak while her mouth is full.

.

9. A lady educates herself either formally or informally. She learns about all womanly arts including healthy living, conception, childbearing, nutritious food, sewing, mending, thrifty spending, gentle parenting, spirituality, etc. Many of these things can be researched online or at your local library.

.

10. A lady dresses as beautifully as she can, yet modestly. She knows her attractive qualities are in her grace not her bare skin. This does not mean expensive clothes! You can buy nice, beautiful things at the thrift shop. She regards fashion and trends but does not overdo it. A good tip on beauty and fashion is to find a respectable public figure whose facial features resemble yours and one whose body type is similar to yours. They have experts telling them how to dress and wear their make up, take some cues from them.
