Some days ago I had the pleasure of hearing, for the first time, a song about a woman who is super sweet and because of this, has quite a fascinating effect on others. Though the words about her sweetness are exaggerated in the song, the point that sweetness is a marvelous thing and aspect of love is well received. This song provided such food for thought on the Fascinating quality of being a sweet woman, which is a quality that is essential to creating the full Fascinating life! Mrs. Andelin wrote on page sixteen of Fascinating Womanhood (Kindle edition) that men admire sweetness of character!
Being truly sweet is so fascinating and such a beautiful, marvelous, rich thing to bring to this world! It adds, well, sweetness. It adds happiness. It is a distinctly good pleasure that adds so much to life. A genuinely sweet woman is a treasure to be around. She is pleasant, her sweetness charming and warm. To bring this quality to others is to give them a gift; to be sweet is also a gift to oneself. It is to make the world a more beautiful, kind place.
Sweetness doesn’t just come from the inside, it appears on the outside of a woman as well. Imagine for a moment, if you will, a sweet smiling, happy woman, yet who is dowdy and unfeminine. The dowdiness distracts from, yet doesn’t fully extinguish, her sweetness. It takes from it, though; it distracts; it makes the effect far less than optimal. Imagine now, for a moment, a fresh-faced and dressed, sweet woman who is full of feminine manner – wow! What an awesome effect! It’s easy to see how such a woman is admirable!
On a personal level, it feels great to be admired for sweetness and to bring this warmth to others! It feels good inside and out to be sweet. These are personal rewards that you deserve for sharing this quality with others.
If you find yourself truly unhappy and feeling like sweetness is something you would have trouble with, now is the perfect time to re-read Fascinating Womanhood. If you’ve read FW in the past and had success with its teachings, now’s also the perfect time to pick it back up, start at the beginning, and reach your full potential with it! If you’ve never read it, now’s the perfect time to do so. Remember, when a woman is truly loved by her husband, life is Fascinating. You deserve that!
