The True Romance of Being A Gutsy Lady
A gutsy woman is romantically involved in many ways with the most significant person of her life. Do you know who that person is? It is the only person she will know her entire life. That’s right, it is herself. Now what do I mean by romantically involved? Is she a narcisist who looks at herself in the mirror all day? No, that is not what I mean.
Here are some steps a gutsy woman has done to secure a successful romance with herself and of course who ever interesting comes into her life:
1. She has taken the time to get to know herself. She knows her flaws and limitations but she also knows and values her talents, strengths, coping skills and even her untapped potential.
2. She has learned how to speak up for herself, but to herself and to others. That means that she doesn’t let her negative thoughts and feelings just sweep over her and take her down. It also means that she knows how to handle the part of herself that wants to give and give to everyone else to the point of her own exhaustion. And it also means she knows how to speak up for her rights and decisions and wishes with others, whether it be her boss, or her husband, or a child or her mother.
3. She has learned how to build enough replenishment and happiness into her life. She knows that she deserves to feel goo and to have fun and that if she doesn’t take care of her mental and physical life no one else really will. Others may have the intent, but no one except herself knows exactly what she needs.
These are just some of the steps that a Gutsy Lady has taken to take full ownnership of her life. Yes, she has had a wonderful engagement, but not one that needed a ring. It is an engagement with herself.
