"May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself."
—Neil Gaiman

Advice Every Girl Should Hear and Never Forget

"Rules of a Lady"

I don’t remember how I came across this, but I love it.  I had already heard a lot of these quotes and tell myself some of this advice repeatedly in my head, but there are even more on this list.  I’m proud to say I already think and act this way, but sometimes it gets hard to remember.  Sometimes things can get you feeling so under-the-weather, to the point where it’s all you can think about.  But you just have to remember this stuff.  So here it is, the Rules of a Lady.  Some pretty good advice, I think.

RULES OF A LADY


1. Play hard to get.

2. Always cross your legs when wearing a skirt.  Always.

3. Always accept a compliment.

4. Smile… it helps you get your way.

5. Leave the rumor –spreading and trash-talking to Gossip Girl.

6. Respect yourself.  If you don’t, he won’t either.

7. Leggings are not pants.

8. Keep your heels, head, and standards high.

9. If he doesn’t treat you like a princess, then he doesn’t deserve to be your prince.

10. Look like a butterfly, sting like a bee.

11. Cover up.  Being a mystery is sexier than showing every inch of yourself off.

12. A woman is only as strong as she wants to be.

13. No, passing out drunk on the floor is not sexy.

14. A real lady holds her head high, but never her nose.

15. Never underestimate the power of a warm greeting.

16. Being single doesn’t mean you’re weak, it means you’re strong enough to wait for what you really deserve.

17. A lady knows her limits no matter what.  Stick to your guns.

18. A lady knows how to play the game.

19. Getting back with your ex is like taking a shower, getting out, and putting on the same old pair or dirty underwear.

20. Makeup is meant to enhance beauty, not cover it.

21. True beauty comes from within.

22. Don’t belittle yourself for anyone.

23. Never let a man define you.  Be amazing on your own.

24. Don’t make someone a priority if they only consider you an option.

25. Don’t get your hopes up; don’t let your guard down.

26. Never allow yourself to be bullied into silence.

27. Be polite, refined, and well-spoken.

28. If he leaves or gives up on you, remember… it’s his loss, not yours.

29. Always be classy and fabulous!

30. Always be yourself around him.  If he can’t accept you for your quirks, then he’s not worth it.

31. Remember… if he wants to, he will.

32. “You might feel worthless to one person, but you’re priceless to another.  Don’t ever forget your value.”  ~ Luan Legacy

36. A true lady doesn’t start fights, but sure knows how to finish them.

37. Make him chase you.

38. Beware of men who only compliment you on your body.

39. Always classy.  Never trashy.  Just a little nasty.

40. Just as men shouldn’t play with a woman’s heart, women shouldn’t play with men’s as well.

41. A smile is the prettiest thing you can wear.

42. Arch your spine and shoulders back; this is good posture.

43. Say what you feel.

44. You can never be beautiful unless you are happy.

45. Chew like you have a secret.

46. Always have a comeback.

47. Your dresses should be tight enough to show you’re a woman, and loose enough to show you’re a lady.

48. Never be reckless with someone else’s heart, and don’t tolerate those that are reckless with yours.

49. If he does not have a chance, tell him.  Don’t lead him on and make him think he has a chance when he does not.

50. To the world you may just be one person, but to one person you may be the world.

51. Don’t wait for Prince Charming to come and save you.  Remember… being independent is more attractive to men.

52. If you love him, tell him.  Chances are, he will feel the same about you.

53. Fall in love when you’re ready, not when you’re lonely.

54. You will never find the right guy if you are looking for the wrong reasons.

55. Never turn around to look back.  Without doubt, he’s still looking at you.

56. Skirts should be like good facebook posts; long enough to cover the subject, but short enough to keep things interesting.

64. Don’t just expect to find love, wait and it will come.

65. Forget what has hurt you in the past, but never forget what it has taught you.

67. You shouldn’t need to raise your voice.  If you’re dealing with a person who won’t listen unless you speak forcefully, then they aren’t worth dealing with.
