Current Readings: How to Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World. *Finished* Woot Woot! (also, read four moose books in my Young Readers Class at Tuesday Classes)
Thoughts: This book is my anthem. Literally, EVERYTHING, discussed correlates with my views on femininity. In brief summary…Be confident, Speak kindly, Work hard, Choose good friends, Make “him” chase you, Be presentable (in my case girly and classy), Less is more, Eat that chocolate bar! Now, I know this makes me practically an endangered species to believe in these somewhat old fashioned ideals. And I am more than okay with that.
My renewed passion is to continue being me.
“Only when we are happy and at peace with ourselves can we begin to be a positive influence on those around us” (PG 174).
That’s my key quote from this book. My mantra. Someday it will pay off. Ha! In some ways it does already. Ladies, I know you are tempted to give into thestupid girl ways of our generation – DON’T. It’s not attractive, healthy or exciting. Be real. Be classy. Be a real classy woman.
This book review would not be complete without a shout out to all the “nice guys” of the world. Don’t be discouraged by the stupid girls of the world. We are not all suffering from the same desperate Barbie syndrome. Smart girls know that there are real men in the world. “Nice guys” who are worth waiting for. The only way you could “finish last” is by not even running the race. So get out there! Don’t let the desperate attempts of every stupid girl convince you otherwise. We still like to have doors opened, flowers purchased, sweaters loaned, intelligent conversation and meaningful lives. Any woman who says otherwise isn’t worth your time as a decent hard working respectful man. Don’t settle for anything less than a woman worth chasing.
