The Wise and Virtuous Woman

Hello ladies!

Have you ever asked yourself: What am I doing wrong? Why am I not getting any attention? Why doesn´t he respect me? Why doesn´t he talk to me? Why is my home like this? Why? Why? Why… It comes to a point when our life is a constant interrogation and an infinite sequence of why´s.

Well, I am here to tell you that maybe you have the answer right in front of you but you are just not seeing it! We, as women, are so impetuous to talk, to act and react, to do certain things that we end up not thinking about the consequences of our actions or words. If we listened more and spoke less at certain times, if we would thoughtfully control our words, we could perhaps always end up “winning” in every situation. This is the behavior of a God fearing woman. What does God want me to do? This is pretty much the only question we should be asking ourselves on a daily basis.

“The wise woman builds her house, but the foolish tears it down with her own hands.” Proverbs 14:1

My sisters let´s by wise and build our houses instead of tearing it down. Our houses is our marriege, our engagement, our job, our business, our behavior, our mother and children relationship, etc. Let´s practice patience, tolerance, humility, grace, respect, love, faith! This is what God wants from us women. He wants to hand us a house full of joy, love, happiness and abundance. This is the house God is referring to!

If your husband is not giving you the proper respect, re-evaluate the respect you  are giving to him. Listen to him, maybe you are not paying attention to him, to his language. How do you talk to him? How do you respond to his requests? Are you kind? Are you gracious with your words? Do you do what he asks you to do, with love, with satisfaction? When you get into an argument, what is your attitude? Does your voice escalate to the point of screams and verbal offenses? Do you talk louder than him? A wise woman undestands the power of her words as well as the power of her silence. How is your behavior towards him in front of others? Do you expose his weaknesses to others? In the house, are you paying attention to the cleanup of the house? Do you do your best at cooking? A virtuous woman is loyal and dedicated.

How about the way you present yourself? We as women should always be discrete in our outfits in public. I am not saying that we should always be covering every part of our body sistas! But we can always dress up or down with class, elegance and prudence. There are parts of your body that only your husband or yourself have to see. How do you care for yourself? We should always be presentable, especially for our husband or future husband. Don´t let yourself go because of tiredness, sloth or sloppiness. Do your best to always have your hair arranged, have pleasent odors.

“A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband; but a disgraceful woman is like rotteness to his bones.” Proverbs 12:4

So my sistas, let´s make our husbands and everyone else that surrounds us feel at ease with our virtuous presence. For our husbands, especially, let´s make him feel that he can conquer anything with his crown (you) on top of his head! We were made by God to be a man´s auxiliator, to assist him in whatever he needs. My proposition for you today is that we do that with faith in God, with grace, respect and love!

Be blessed my loves!

Realization!

Have you ever had one of those days that you have an AHA! moment? When you come to your truth, your purpose or what your are supposed to be doing in this Earth but have been avoiding for a long time or just you never thought about it. In Portuguese we call it the Hannnn! moment. this is what I´am calling today REALIZATION!

It came to me a couple of days ago what I should be doing to help fulfil my purpose in this life. It was something that hovered my mind for a while, but I was just either too afraid ou too proud to listen to that little voice inside of me. I kept hearing my own voice in the inside saying “write Isa, write Isa, spread the message Isa! And here I am writing my first blog post, not sure how or who is going to read it but because that is not the thing worries me the most, I am just throwing myself out there for the world to catch me. I realized in this very moment, with my very first word that this is what I love to do. sharing my ideas, my thoughts, my humble knowledge with the world just because that fulfills me and because I know that someone somehow is going to benefit from it.

Many times we find ourselves stuck at a point in life where even though everything whether financially, emotionally or  health wise is going fine, we still miss something of utmost importance in our life. Something that you know that if you were doing that you would be the happiest person alive. Other times, things might not be going so well in the different areas of our lives but we know that if we were doing that one thing, the one thing that we were brought to this earth for, we would be just fine!

This is what I want to call your attention for today. Listen to yourself! Get to know yourself. Pay attention to the things that trigger your interest. Explore, experience different things so you know what your mind and body responds to. When you find it, oh my friend when you find throw yourself in it. don´t overthink it. Don´t doubt it. Don´t be afraid. don´t back down. If you are not sure how to start it, look for a way but do it! If you don´t have enough resources to start, don´t sweat, start with what you have. Quem não tem cão caça com gato (Make do with what you have)! You will never get to know how it is to success or fail if you  don´t start. if you are afraid of failing, don´t be. Because failure is what will make you if you have the strength and courage to do it again and again and again. Every time you do it again with the right attitude and strategy you will improve and succeed eventually.

So, Realize your purpose, dust yourself off and get to work, mãos á obra! if it is a business start it! A hobby, do it! Whatever it is that will make you jump from excitement, go ahead and do it!

Always Believe in yourself!
