The Lady Says...

A lady is a complement to a gentleman, an exemplar, a symbol of style, an inspiration and one who loves with a full heart.

A Lady Converses

A Lady truly understands and enjoys the art of conversation. Too often in today's society we have pulled away from the pure entertainment of conversing with a friend. We text, email, watch television, facebook and twitter each other, but rarely do we simply sit and talk to one another. I dearly love each of my friends for different reasons special to their personality, but one common thread is that I can easily communicate with them. I am one to become easily bored in a non-conversationally stimulating setting, and therefore I treasure my friends' ability to converse with wit and wisdom. I believe in a previous post I discussed how a Lady loves to continually learn and be challenged, well, engaging conversation is absolutely the best way to do so. When a Lady stops and listens to a friend and then ponders an adequate and intelligent response, tagged along with a little satire or humor, the whole process is exceptionally academic and very entertaining. Not only does a Lady learn so much from listening to those around her, but she also learns much about herself through her responses and observations. This entire process is one in which I truly enjoy and wish to encounter more of. I hope that this beautiful friday brings you much intelligent, stimulating and interesting conversation with those around you.

A Lady Is Wise

A Lady maintains an appropriate, calm perspective on situations and does not panic or become easily overwhelmed by them. A Lady is aware that successful people are those who do not let other people, nor precarious situations dictate who they are or how they respond. They carry themselves with confidence and approach situations and relationships with an open mind, while still holding strong to her personal beliefs. A Lady knows who she is, where she is headed and what learning and growth she has in store for her future. A Lady knows that you can always grow wiser and learn more, but that the foundation of morals and values is the starting point from which all else centers around; therefore, a Lady must be well established in those morals and values and falter little from them on her journey.

This is not to say that a Lady does not make mistakes, but she knows when to take responsibility and how to move on with a head held high, and a desire to not repeat the same mistake. A Lady knows who she is - she allows others to inspire her, but not define her. A Lady knows that this is a journey and accepts that perfection is an unreachable ideal, not a destination.

A Lady Seeks A Gentleman

A Lady should always seek out a gentleman. A man that will stand by her, motivate, challenge, and inspire her. A Lady should find a man that she can grow with, who she respects and who she admires. A Lady should seek love, rather than lust; romance, rather than the easy road; and a man with a heart on the same pathway as her own. A relationship means communicating together, learning together, growing together, falling down together and emerging together as better, wiser, stronger partners.

The words a Lady wants to hear most are "I love you" and the words a gentleman wants to hear most are "I respect you", and as a couple, these two phrases need to be made clear and need to be upheld each day.

A Lady never settles. Every lady deserves to love and to be loved to the fullest potential. It is a true gift to find the person that you are, without a doubt, meant to be with, and everyone deserves that stability and that blessing. One of my favorite chapters in the Bible is 1 Corinthians 13 - the chapter on love. It is said "And these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."

This is my Gentleman, Brett.

Love Always,
