When I say the modern woman, what comes to your mind?
Does the proverbs 31 women come to mind? Probably not.
In honor of girlfriends day (1st August) I wanted to do something special. Come with me as I take you through my definition of the modern lady.
Before that, I will make a few assumptions.
Assumption number one, you my dear reader are a young lady.
Assumption number two, if you are not a lady, you are a gentleman who is curious about the definition of a modern woman or lady.
Do forgive me if my assumptions are wrong.
Kindly share this article with ladies out there. Because when we learn together, we grow together. Plus it’s fun to share good content with good friends.
The modern woman is her own ‘prince charming’
She is busy making her dreams come true. not waiting for a man to take her out of her misery.
If you are a gentleman, you are probably nodding right now.
. The modern lady has her financial life together, or at least she is trying to get it together.
By having her financial life together, I mean that:
1.she is paying her own bills,
2. She has an active savings account,
3. She spends below budget and
4. she doesn’t get into debt over things she doesn’t need.
Notice that I have said need and not want.
Do you see yourself already?
The modern woman has a life insurance policy, a will, and has already started saving for retirement.
The modern lady has general knowledge about many things.
This means that she is up to date about current affairs, she knows about football, politics, and so on.
I know that watching the news or reading the newspaper can be boring but as a modern woman staying up to date is crucial.
Knowing a thing or two about Brexit makes good conversation.
You can’t expect to make conversation with the elite if you know nothing about everything.
I once read somewhere that being beautiful without knowledge is like having a public holiday on a Saturday. Useless.
The modern woman knows how to cook.
Now don’t get me wrong, I do not mean that her place is in the kitchen.
Neither do I mean that she is a master chef, no.
I mean that she can cook basic dishes. With these basics, she can recreate different meals.
The modern woman knows what looks good on her
she dresses in a manner that suits her body, shape, and age.
She knows what she looks good in and avoids what does not compliment her.

When she walks int a room, she commands attention. You have no choice but to turn and look at her.
You look at her, not because she is half-naked but because she is elegant. She is a true queen.
Her outfit is neither too big nor too small. It is just right.
Her make up is not too much. You can hardly notice it. Everything about her looks is just right.

From having medical checkups with her gynecologist to having her teeth checked often by her dentist.
She knows that her health is her wealth.
She does not stop with her physical well-being.
She feeds her spirit too by cultivating her relationship with her Maker. She is a prayer warrior.
