50 Things Every Lady Should Know…Week 1

So a few years ago I purchased this book “50 Things Every Young Lady Should Know”.  I fell in love with this book.  I shared some from the book so we ALL could work on these improvements within ourselves.  This year we will do all 50 so we can help each other get better.  I like to think that a lot of these also apply to EVERYONE.  So feel free to share.  All content credit goes to Kay West and her team.

I will post one each week for 50 weeks.  I will Wednesdays.  That way you, your friends, daughters, nieces, ect. can have a full week to work on it.  Share with friends.

Thank you Kay West for this awesome book.

WEEK 1:”SAY PLEASE”

YOU DO:
Say “please” consistently, to everyone, always.  It doesn’t matter if you’re asking your brother to “Pass the potatoes” or asking the busy clerk in the store to please wrap your purchase for your mother’s birthday gift.

YOU DON’T:
Treat your little brother, however annoying he may be, with any less consideration than you do a stranger.  And Vice versa.

WHY:
Because please really is a magic word that adds a layer pleasantry to every request.  The more you use it, the more natural it becomes.

A LADY:

A lady says the word please every time she makes a request, no matter how small it seems.

A lady answers, “Yes Please.” if someone asks if she would like somethings.  If not, she says, “No thank you.”

A lady knows “please” is just enough.  Saying “pretty please” or “pleeeeease” is unnecessary and can be annoying.
