La Gentillesse Et La Politesse

'You can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar! ' It is no coincidence that that also is the title of my most recent book (©2006 Diamond Girl Publishing) . My mother used to tell my sisters and me that same saying over and over again when we were young, and as we grew into beautiful ladies, on the inside and out.

So, since when did it become cute, ok, or 'acceptable' to be mean, vicious, malicious, spiteful, attitudinal, conniving, selfish, and deceitful? Since when? Since never! ! ! And it is not cute to not have manners and to use foul language. It actually makes you look really stupid and really crass and low class. And it reveals a deep, inner, self-loathsome spirit that you are trying so desperately to hide! And you wonder why people don't want to be bothered with you...

Instead, be gracious to one another, and in turn, grace will be given unto you. Practice goodwill toward others. Our blessings come in willfully helping other people!

Be worldly, honest, openminded, colorful, cultured, educated, virtuous, caring, and understanding. Be genuinely kind and sincere. If you fall down, I know it's hard, but you've got to get back up and dust yourself off! Learn from your mistakes and BE DAZZLING!

Love.. Always
