ELEGANCE is a beautifully subtle word that describes calm yet powerful heart energy.
It is about giving ourselves permission to choose to be mainstream, under or if we desire even overstated, while remaining relaxed in who we are and who we are not.
Sometimes we are encouraged to believe that we will only ever succeed in life and love by focusing on what we know or what we do. However, true and lasting success is often a byproduct of personal ELEGANCE that derives from quietly knowing who we are and unapologetically enjoying it.
So if we are looking for a little more ELEGANCE in our lives we will need to up our willingness to self-care and self-respect on all levels.
ELEGANCE is the result of our whole human package working in harmony. Head (thoughts), heart (feelings) and body (actions) in healthy alignment.
Our dignified grace, humanitarian manners and respect for self and others is the recipe required to create more ELEGANCE. Gentlemen and gentlewomen have mastered the art of simplicity and the quality of gentleness and do so effortlessly, for it comes from the truth of their heart’s character.
So let’s remember to work just a little more this subtle and beautiful heart muscle of ELEGANCE?
Our ego (head and body) loves to be noticed for how we look and what we do, and there is no shame in that, but without an authentic heart and emotional ELEGANCE life will become meaningless. Our heart, however, prefers to be remembered not for how we look or what we do, but for who we are.
ELEGANCE is not about being noticed, but more importantly about being remembered.
Lotsa love Cynthia xxx
