So You Want a GOOD Man....

Realize YOU are the standard, so setting one is almost "irrelevant". As women, we should BE Great & only strive to be greater so that way, a man shouldn't have a problem comprehending what we want when it's clear to him WHO WE ARE!!! ;)

At the age of 19, i started writing a book "So you want a Good Man"! I think i woke up one day & realized how bogus our demands are; i realized we weren't half of the things we were asking/looking for!!! And i realized, it starts with us! Because I have always been "preoccupied" with representing God's royal greatness, I have never been one to demand or even expect something besides myself; however, i couldn't totally disassociate myself from womankind either! Not all women are like this, still TOO many are....& eventually, there will be a book for that woman and everyone else who needs to know:
YOU ARE THE STANDARD.

so rather than living up to falsified standards set by a negatively skewed society, i say we live up to our own POTENTIAL!
...and we are all potentially Great :)

well don't go cueing the organist just yet!! lol...i started this book almost FOUR years ago, and it'll be many more years before it's even finished...I don't want to just talk about something from the outside looking in. Life provides so many experiences and sometimes, aside from natural wisdom, Experience is what we need to reach people and even "teach" people! :) i want to KNOW what i'm talking about & i want people to feel confident that what I KNOW is what i've learned & acquired, rather than something i studied and memorized. (although, we Don't (& i WON'T) have to go through it all to "say a word"; God's so good, he gives common sense for some stuff!) lol

Thanks for reading!!! :)

i like this. like you would say, "oh, the irony"... lol. i was just thinking about my infamous list... and honestly, if a guy was asking for as much stuff as i am... he probably wouldn't be satisfied.

d. isn't it crazy; it's like we can get caught up in making sure a guy is cacpable of meeting satisfaction, but rarely do we stop to think about our end of the bargain!!!
