happiness is not contingent on circumstances alone.

Her foundation is solidly rooted in the Divine love of God, therefore
she is not easily shaken. She is comforted in knowing that when she is
faithful and thankful during trials and hardships, that she will safely
come out of the storm even more prepared and sharpened for a spiritual

This list is primarily based on the Proverbs 31:10-31woman, the rest
are supplemental wise words from the book of Proverbs. No woman is
perfect and believe me, I am not all these things all the time (everyone is liable to have this brain touch once in a while). What would our character and lives look like
if we purposefully applied these attributes? Start with one per day,
you could even write yourself reminders in your phone or post-its on
your mirror to remind you of the woman you can be if you want to be. You
were born to stand out.
