Talking The Beauty of a Woman

I know all of ya'll have probably seen this before (can't remember if I've posted here or not), but someone sent it to me and I thought it applied to everyone here!

HUGS!

M'Chelle

************************************************** **

IT'S BEAUTIFUL WOMAN MONTH & TAG YOU'RE IT!

Did you know that it's Beautiful Women Month? Well it is and that means you and me. I'm supposed to send this to FIVE BEAUTIFUL WOMEN, and you are one of them!!!

Facts on Figures;

There are 3 billion women who don't look like supermodels and only eight who do.

Marilyn Monroe wore a size 14.

If Barbie was a real woman, she'd have to walk on all fours due to her proportions.

The average woman weighs 144 lbs and wears between a 12-14.

One out of every four college aged women has an eating disorder.

The models in the magazines are airbrushed - not perfect!

A psychological study in 1995 found that three minutes spent looking at a fashion magazine caused 70% of women to feel depressed, guilty, and shameful.

Models twenty years ago weighed 8% less than the average woman. Today they weigh 23% less.

~Beauty of a Woman~
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure she carries, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart,
The place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman Is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives,
The passion that she shows.
The beauty of a woman
With passing years - only grows.

An English professor wrote the words, "Woman without her man is nothing," on the blackboard and directed the students to punctuate it correctly. The men wrote: "Woman, without her man, is nothing." The women wrote: "Woman! Without her, man is nothing."

The Images of Mother
4 YEARS OF AGE ~ My Mommy can do anything!
8 YEARS OF AGE ~ My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!
12 YEARS OF AGE ~ My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.
14 YEARS OF AGE ~ Naturally, Mother doesn't know that, either.
16 YEARS OF AGE ~ Mother? She's hopelessly old-fashioned.
18 YEARS OF AGE ~ That old woman? She's way out of date!
25 YEARS OF AGE ~ Well, she might know a little bit about it.
35 YEARS OF AGE ~ Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.
45 YEARS OF AGE ~ Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?
65 YEARS OF AGE ~ Wish I could talk it over with Mom.

***Please send this to at least five phenomenal women today in
celebration of Women's History Month.

If you do, something good will happen.... You will boost another
woman's self-esteem!

Well . . . that was simply wonderful. Thanks a bunch. I know just who to sent this to - and of course, there are more than five women I know who fit the description. (That isn't a surprise, is it?)

Thanks for sharing it,

Annie

M'Chelle
this is a wonderful post.
I love what you posted

I'd love to add these

Every Women Should Have...

One old love she can imagine going back to...
And one who reminds her how far she has come...
Enough money within her control to move out & rent a place of her own,
even if she never wants or needs to...
Something perfect to wear if the employer or date of her dreams wants to see her in an hour...
A youth she’s content to leave behind...
A past juicy enough that she’s looking forward to re-telling it in her old age...
The realization that she is actually going to have an old age & some money set aside to fund it...
A set of screwdrivers, a cordless drill & a black lace bra...
One friend who always makes her laugh & one who lets her cry...
A good piece of furniture not previously owned by anyone else in her family...
Eight matching plates, wine glasses with stems & a recipe for a meal that will make her guests feel honored...
A resume that is not even the slightest bit padded...
A feeling of control over her destiny...


Every Woman Should Know...

How to fall in love without losing herself...

How to quit a job, break up with a lover or confront a friend without ruining the friendship...

When to try harder & when to walk away...

How to have a good time at a party she’d never choose to attend...

How to ask for what she wants in a way she’ll most likely get it...

That she can’t change the length of her calves, the width of her hips or the nature of her parents...

That her childhood may not have been perfect, but its over...

What she would and wouldn’t do for love or more...

How to live alone, even if she doesn’t like it...

Whom she can trust, whom she can’t and why she shouldn’t take it personally...

Where to go, be it to her best friend’s kitchen table or a charming inn in the woods, when her soul needs soothing...

What she can and can’t accomplish in a day, a month & a year...
