Spirit: Greek mythology tells of sister goddesses of joy, charm and beauty called the three Graces. Graceful is poised and dignified and at her best, is a giving, generous spirit who seeks to impart kindness and dignity. Love is her fuel; goodwill is her motivation and guide. Graceful prefers meaning and substance but will practice courtesy and compassion rather than forcing her views about a situation. Graceful has a sense of fit and propriety, a craving for balance and good form and proportion. She adores harmony and material and immaterial luxury – from finery to leisure. Rooted in feminine power, Graceful has a quiet and steady confidence. She endeavors to make everything special in the most considerate and ultimately charming ways, and she tends to make it all look effortless.
Look & Feel: Adroitness, agility, allure, attractiveness, balance, beauty, cleanliness, ease, elegance. The proper fit and hang. Flow, warmth, comfort, harmony. Shapeliness, smoothness, style, suppleness, and symmetry.
Graceful means to me: The desire to impart kindness and dignity, compassion, thoughtfulness and prayer.
Creative means to me: The inspiration to change for the better, resourceful, determined and passionate. Coming up with ideas; problem solving.
I love: the gift of life, spending time with my kids and their laughter, getaway’s with my husband, the beach, my ipod, beautiful homes, bookstores, Cathedrals, puppies, my wedding rings, my Mac, traveling to new (and old) places, candles, my digital camera, thunderstorms, time with girlfriends…I love to witness grace, humility and magnanimity in people.
I want more: life, love, memory making, time with my kids, sunsets and faith.
