Unfailingly Charming

It is not easy to be unfailingly charming. Or fun to be with.  The discipline of being delightful at all times may seem impossible.  It’s not.

No one  feels upbeat and buoyant all of the time but you should make an effort.  How hard is it to be lively and energetic? It doesn’t take all that much but you must force yourself to be positive.

An optimistic attitude is a gift to others.  And it’s a gift to yourself.  You’ll have a stellar reputation.  People will seek out your company.  Dermatologists may dissuade you from getting Botox because who needs it when you’re already fetching. Maybe you’ll remarry.  Or get married.  Or date.

I know it’s hard to be enchanting on a daily basis but what is the alternative?

(There is no alternative.)

    Oh Ellen, so good to have you back.
    Charming. Yes. What is the alternative? Its being a grumpy old lady who is sour, resentful, angry, unhappy, uninteresting, uninformed and generally unlovely to be with.
    Yes, its worth making the effort. When your looks are fading and your energy has already long since peaked, at the very least you can be charming and interesting.

    Thank you for challenging my ‘faded looks’ comment. You are correct (of course). Words of wisdom. I will re-apply my red lipstick, put on my sunglasses and head on out to meet the world. J

Some say she's tart and arch, but she knows fabulous when she sees it, and that's what she writes about. Get her book, The Essentials of Fabulous, on Amazon. More about me...
