For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill. Sun Tzu

Especially for a woman.

Unless, of course, she prefers to be seen as a fighter . . . less feminine . . . less attractive . . . less than. This is entirely her choice. But it is in her best interest to know thyself.

If ignorant both of your enemy and yourself, you are certain to be in peril. – Sun Tzu

There is a difference between a battle and a war.

Battles are short and heated. Wars are protracted but more importantly, conducted with forethought and strategy.

Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat. – Sun Tzu

Winning a battle means nothing if the war is lost.

Best to be mindful your future because that is where you will live.

Supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy’s resistance without fighting. – Sun Tzu

Feminine women pursue excellence.

And feminine women set themselves apart.

No one can persuade another to change.

Each of us guards a gate of change that can only be opened from the inside.

We cannot open the gate of another, either by argument or by emotional appeal.

– Marilyn Ferguson

You can only control you.

Choosing to focus on what other people do or do not do entangles you in

your version of their problem

rather than

your vision of your solution.

 

What you think upon grows.

Try something new.

Female approval carries a gravity that few are willing to take responsibility for.

Your perceptions drive what you expect, believe, and accept regarding yourself and other people.

A victim mentality blames everyone except self (most notable when the person is the only constant across varying situations). It releases the person to expect, receive, and be less than.

A slave mentality needs permission from anyone or anything outside of self (most notable when the person is an autonomous adult in a free country). It releases the person to expect, receive, and be less than.

This extends across the board – from personal behavior to culture in general.

Check your lane.

I freed thousands of slaves. I could have freed thousands more, if they had known they were slaves.

– Harriet Tubman

Being without a clue is neither feminine nor cute.

Lady of the house – a woman; a man’s partner in marriage; a wife who manages her household while her husband earns the family income (traditional); a wife who manages her household while her husband earns the bulk of the family income (modern)

Gold digger – an adult female who associates with or marries a rich man to get valuables from him through gifts or a divorce settlement

Fool – a woman or adult female who manages a household, earns the bulk or entirety of the family income while cohabitating with an adult male

For clarity:

woman – an adult female human endowed with qualities characteristic of womanhood (integrity, physical, intellectual, and emotional maturity, correct sense of self, responsibility and morality)

man – an adult male human endowed with qualities characteristic of manhood (integrity, physical, intellectual, and emotional maturity, correct sense of self, responsibility and morality)

adult female – a physically mature female human; exhibits few to no qualities characteristic of womanhood (hesitant or unwilling to accept responsibility for choices or life circumstances; criminal and/or degenerate behavior while actively or passively supporting same in offspring and associates; accepts ongoing financial support from anyone)

adult male – a physically mature male human; exhibits few to no qualities characteristic of manhood (hesitant or unwilling to accept responsibility for choices or life circumstances; criminal and/or degenerate behavior while actively or passively supporting same in offspring and associates; accepts ongoing financial support from anyone especially women)

Your truth can be found in any mirror you look into.

Choose your role wisely.

Femininity and sexuality are two different things. And, there is a marked difference between accentuating the female form and revealing it.

The dress in the first pic accentuates the body’s curves with soft, draping material. This dress is feminine. The dress in the second pic simply reveals the body (along with the unfortunate choice of undergarment). This dress is just tight and there is nothing feminine about it.

Accept it or not, the way in which you present yourself to the world, namely, your manner of dress, discloses your level of self respect to everyone.

It also tells men exactly where your head is and what you’re more than likely willing to accept.

  • Divulging her sexual history to a man injects poisons into their relationship.
  • She doesn’t like herself very well, so others are also undeserving. This defines the hard-hearted female.
  • A wife who appears ordinary stales fast in the face of unconquered scenery outside the home.
  • It may be unfair, but the pill puts all responsibility on her.
  • Females shack up to test, simulate, or attract marriage. Males shack up for commitment-lite sex provided economically.
  • Abstinence holds men off. Chastity keeps men interested. Virginity—real, virtual, or imagined by him—attracts the Marrying Man.
  • After she yields first time, he assumes the dominant role as conqueror’s right.
  • Cleavage sells only sex; it points masculine thinking toward hit and run more than stay and fight.
  • Virtual virginity enables women to uncover what men are really after—conquest, conquer and dump, frequent and convenient sex, or one woman above all else.
  • Women capture men with sex, but it’s not what holds a man after infatuation and lust fade in a year or two.

No matter how distracting they are 🙂

Proper attire is not an indication of character, integrity, drive, or any degree of wealth. In other words,

Don’t judge a book by its cover. – Anonymous

A feminine woman is discerning as her life and the quality of her life depends on it.

The Cicada and the Ants

from The Complete Fables by Aesop

It was winter. Their grain was damp and the ants were drying it. A cicada, who was hungry, asked them for something to eat. The ants replied:

“Why didn’t you too store up some provisions during the summer?’

‘I didn’t have the time for that,’ replied the cicada. ‘I was singing melodiously.’

The ants made fun of her.

‘Ah well,’ they said, ‘since you sang in summer you can dance in winter.’

In the original story, the moral is that there is a time for work and a time for play. Newer versions, as in the Disney short, allow for play time anytime and the dependence on others for survival.

Nothing remains the same. Seasons change. Lay-offs happen. Economies take a down turn. Hurricanes and earthquakes occur.

Store extra food and water, eliminate debt, save money, and maintain optimal health. These are the basics. Consider different scenarios and plan ahead.

Always have, at the very least, a Plan B.
