Manners maketh woman. Everyone has their own interpretation of what “classy” is, just as everyone generally has a pretty good idea of what “rude” is. Through my life I have cultivated a hefty mental list of do’s and don’t’s which have helped formulate my view of how to be classy. Is classy related to social standing? No. Is classy being able to afford designer brands and caviar? No. To me, being classy is a mindset. A mindset of elegance, poise, and value. You could be the richest person in the world and be completely classless. And while not everyone is perfect, perhaps you might be able to adopt one or two of these habits to incorporate into your own hefty mental list of do’s and don’t’s.
- Be well-read
- Stay up to date on current events
- Say please, thank you, and excuse me
- Stop saying sorry
- Say hello to everyone you work with
- Don’t overshare
- Sit up straight
- Don’t gossip
- Be respectful of those around you
- Always bring a housewarming gift to a new place
This was a short post today, but I feel like these points don’t need too much explanation. What makes you feel classy? Leave your comments down below!
Take care, and don’t forget to take your medications!
