~ From Patricia Barber, Certified Fascinating Womanhood Teacher,
How are we presenting ourselves physically and emotionally as fascinating women? Are we proclaiming that being a feminine woman is a life filled with joy or one of drudgery? Each day we make a choice to live the Fascinating Womanhood lifestyle. Right from the start of your day, determine to get up, dress up, and show up in a fascinating way!
For me personally, being a Fascinating Woman begins the night before. I prepare for the next day by setting up the coffeemaker, setting out my clothes, and having a plan for what I will serve my family for breakfast. Preparing the night before helps me avoid last minute rushing and allows me to enjoy the morning before embarking on the business of the day.
Make it a goal to get dressed shorty after you arise. Put on something that makes you feel like the lovely, fascinating woman you are! For many, like myself, that may be a lovely dress or skirt. For others, that may be a charming pants outfit.
The goal is to dress opposite of what a man would wear. Think about what others see when they look at you. Don't focus on your perceived flaws, but rather make sure your clothes are feminine, well fitting, clean and pressed. Make sure your hair is clean and styled in a feminine manner. If you choose to wear makeup, keep it natural, as to enhance your natural beauty. When you look and feel your best, you're going to show up your best!
How we present ourselves physically and emotionally says a lot about how we feel about living our lives as a feminine, fascinating woman. We have a choice to proclaim our life as one of joy, or one of drudgery. Let's determine to get up, dress up, and show up in a fascinating way!
