Do not interrupt Sir when he is speaking!

Remember that I can tell Sir anything.

Assist Sir with any aspect of his business that he’s delegated.

I must consult Sir before volunteering for any position at church or the kids’ school.

I must consult Sir before planning any outings or events that would include the both of us.

    • I sure will. That one sneaks up on you. My “aha” moment came when I accepted who I am instead of being something I’m not, but changing old speech patterns take work. Writing them out with the alternative really can help you make the change.


  1. Bravo… These are life lessons.. That you’re posting. We all need to print this and put it on the mirror that we wake up and look at each day! Very important. We are a work in progress… The sub in us tells us to make ourselves better and not just wish it but act on it! Great example of that!
    I still think you’re great just the way you are girl! ❤❤❤❤🐇
