Are You A Lady? Are You A Woman?

As we were preparing for a new series dedicated to saluting the dope work of females who we admire, respect, and have followed over the years, we experienced a minor hiccup. We were not quite sure whether or not it would be more appropriate to use the term, “Ladies” or “Women” when referring to females who are currently crushing it in their respective industries.

After some research, we came across an article entitled, “Is She a “Lady” or a “Woman” by Maeve Maddox. Thanks to this article, we were quickly able to distinguish between using the term “Lady” and using the term “Woman”.

Here’s what we learned:

Woman: Female human-being.

Man: Male human-being.

_________________________

Lady: A woman of refined behavior and speech.

Gentleman: A man of refined behavior and speech.

_________________________

All “ladies” are women but not all women are “ladies.” The same goes for men. All “gentlemen” are men but not all men are “gentlemen.”

What are your thoughts? We would love to know…by the way, stay tuned for our #LadiesWeLove series coming soon…very soon!

The Spiritual Partnership: Gary Zukav

Screen Shot 2016-01-24 at 3.32.57 AM

Hey! What can I say? First off, where should I start? Although my mother probably had his books laying all across our house when I was younger, I first remember coming across Gary Zukav when I checked out Oprah on her “Living Brave” interview with Brené Brown (2:44) earlier this year. Oprah mentioned Gary Zukav’s book on intention, which I believe was “The Seat of The Soul” as the spawning of a breakthrough in her life back in 1989. Interestingly enough, back in October of 2015 I stumbled upon one of his quotes on Pinterest. I just couldn’t help but to pin it to one of my boards and share it with my friends on Facebook. I believe that the quote was extracted from “Soul Stories” and it goes as follows:

“The new female and the new male are partners on a journey of spiritual growth. They want to make the journey. Their love and trust keep them together. Their intuition guides them. They consult with each other. They are friends. They laugh a lot. They are equals. That is what a spiritual partnership is: a partnership between equals for the purpose of spiritual growth.” – Gary Zukav

How amazing right!?!?! This is the essence of it all! A true partnership. A spiritual journey. Divine love and connection. Sound a little too “woo woo” for you? You may want to consider opening up and digging deeper. Why settle for anything or anyone? You deserve the right to be selective with the people you choose to engage deeply with. We’re not talking about surface level relationships, I mean deep engagement.

When it comes to intimacy and romantic relationships, I like to use the term “Holistic Compatibility.” I consider holistic compatibility to be a prime partnership match on many if not all or most levels. Of course, not much can be perfect. However, whatever is not operating well can still be worked on. As long as good intentions remain the case, perfection is less in the result as it is in the willingness to persist, learn, and improve.

Love is the answer!
