Do you know what I think is one of the biggest things that girls of my generation are missing?
A little self respect and c l a s s.
To me personally, being classy is one of the most beautiful characteristics a woman can have.
It means you have respect for yourself. It means you know the beauty and empowerment of being a lady. It means you are tasteful in the things you say and wear, in the way you treat other people, and in the way you act.
Maybe it's just me, but I see a beauty in being classy; I see a beauty in femininity, in being sophisticated, in being polite, in being lady like and in being warm hearted.
Don't take what I am saying too extreme. I am not saying that girls have to act like we are living in the 1800's. and I am also not saying that you have to be a goody two shoes to be classy. What I am saying is that women have fought hard to get to where we are at now- to have the same rights as men, and for people to respect women as equals. But I think in order to maintain respect from people, you have to also show respect for yourself. You have to be proud that you are a woman and that you have the ability to be strong, and at the same time be gentle. To be confident, but at the same time humble. To be willing to put time and effort into the way you look, but not be self indulgent. To be able to have fun, but not be known as a party girl.
Classy is respected. Classy is intriguing. Classy is admired. Classy is inspiring. Classy is hard to come across these days, but Classy is beautiful. So don't sell yourself short, ladies. You're better than that.
...oh and let's get real here and give a shout out to Kate Middleton, the epitome of class. You knew I had to throw her in here. I couldn't help myself.
