Oil your manners

For this last week in September – we’re going to focus on something that helps us in work and life and love. Something that makes everything we do better. Manners.


Our first quote for and about manners is from Lord Chesterfield who said,


“Prepare yourself for the world, as athletes used to do for their exercises; oil your mind and your manners, to give them the necessary suppleness and flexibility; strength alone will not do.”


We must oil our manners – by knowing them, using them and having our manners be of benefit to others.


Having well oiled manners will help you in every aspect of your life because manners will make other people feel good in your presence.


To me manners are all the little things: things that when done and done with love produce  very big things: love, respect, admiration.


Can you oil your manners today?

You Create Your Day by the way You Think! Be Present!

Go make it a Magnificent Day!


Blessings, Shawna
