You Can Call Me A “Cupcake,” But Deep Down Inside I am Pure Soul Food

Yup, it’s true.

I totally eat up all things “girlie.” As a matter of fact, I’m just about as girlie as a girl can be. I think it’s fun to glam up with sparkly shoes and luscious lipsticks. And don’t even get me started on tutus and tiaras!  Now, I know a lot of you feel the same way too. All our funky, wacky & delectable adornments are a great way to express ourselves and make a statement about our style and personality. For me it really is half the fun of being a woman!

Underestimate me. That will be fun!

But the outward trimmings and colorful sprinkles are nothing compared to the women we strive to be on the inside. As much as we can fancy ourselves up on the outside,
that is not who we truly are. (I can’t tell you how many time my personal appearance was met with an eye roll or snicker. But rather than be offended, my first thought is always…“Oh yes, please…underestimate me. That will be fun!” 

Do first impressions really count?

Yes, while it’s true that we live in a world where first impressions count, and no doubt, there is nothing so shallow as a pretty package that is empty within… that’s NOT who we are or what we stand for.

Values count!

That’s why for us Wonderful Wacky Women, when it comes down to it, we strive to make sure we are adorned on the inside with jewels of compassion, integrity, and honor.  We always focus our efforts towards making the world a better place and ourselves better people. We always make sure those qualities outshine the sparkle of our shoes or the bling of our rings.

We are Soul Food

So the next time someone sizes us up, let them be awed by the humility of our hearts and the depth of our empathy… and not the size of our egos. Because really, reducing us to eye candy is way too simplistic. We are soul food…complex, comforting, and absolutely delicious!
(Ok, ok, ok… so we’re Soul Food with Sparkles!)
