The Lady Says...

A Lady Uses Her Words

To be a true Lady is to be articulate and kind. A Lady uses her words carefully both simply in her conversations as well as within her relationships. I use this point in two ways.

First, a Lady always thinks before she speaks. Think about what it is that you are trying to say and what the best way to get your point across eloquently may be. Reading and catching words that mentors of yours utilize is the best way to expand your vocabulary. Your words can express so much more than simply the truest meaning of them - they are part of your personality. Think of Lady of icons of the past and the words that they chose. Examples include Audrey Hepburn using darling or lovely. The use of beautiful adjectives and out of the ordinary vocabulary can truly make you stand out.

The second point I wish to make with this topic is to use your words within your relationships carefully. Be honest with those you care about, express your feelings through well thought out and appropriate language. It means so much more when you have thought about someone and truly deciphered what would stand out to them. Telling a friend you are proud of them. Expressing to a loved one that you care for them and support them. Telling someone you love them. These are all expressions which can be taken to heart and make someone's day. Sincerity and kindness can go so far with a friend, spouse, family member or even in a new meeting.

With Love,
