What is Poise?

Being a lady is a missing quality in our world today. If you are not half naked and rude then it seems that you get any respect. Even women don't seem to respect other women when they choose to act with some dignity. Sometimes I feel as though the world is going mad! But I refuse to be apart of the decline in manners today.

I came across this blog called Elegant Woman. Once I started reading her articles I could not stop. My favorite one so far is What is Poise? How to be a Woman with Poise. The definition of poise is composure and dignity of manner. It is the graceful and elegant bearing in a person.

The elegant bearing in a person. Wow, just hearing that makes you want to become an elegant woman.  I know do. There was one paragraph in the article that stayed with me.....

Being poised is not just having composure, but also having dignity as well.
A poised person has elegant mannerisms. Her movements of her body...have a lot of style. The way she walks, talks, carries herself is fluid and gentle, yet strong and purposeful.
Have you ever been in the lobby of a hotel and suddenly you can't help but notice a very beautiful woman walking in?
You can't help but watch as she gets out of the car, smiles at the doorman, and say thank you.
She walks to the front door already opened for her.
She pauses at the entrance, her eyes scanning the room.
Her eyes light up as she spots her date and walks towards the him in a bubble of poise.
She is immaculately dressed, and exudes a sense of calm confidence. She is unaware of the impact of her presence and how she changed the atmosphere of the room. She made heads turn without knowing simply with her poise.

  1. What a great post. I agree 100%, a lot of women today are lacking in this department. Being a women in showing class, elegance, and poise. Women today are busy twerking, being loud and looking for attention. They don't have respect for themselves and wonder why men don't respect them in return. Great post Mrs. Shockley.

    1. Thank you Mrs. Shery. It has been horrible seeing how low women have gone. It is really sad.
