That’s why Good Manners count!


Do you know who is the #1 hater on gum chewing?


She absolutely hates it!

Actually, one of mine as well.πŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ™‹β€β™€οΈπŸ™‹β€β™€οΈ

I will tell you right up front, it’s disgusting and it makes you look bad.

Let me break it down, you look like a cow when you chew gum, yes, a cow.  

It does nothing to enhance your image in any way, shape or form.  

Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror when you are chewing gum?  

If not, you should, and brace yourself, it’s not pretty πŸ˜‰

In fact, the other day I was shopping and noticed a mother and daughter together.

From the back, they were dressed very nicely.  

And then they turned around, both of them chewing gum, ruined their entire look. πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈπŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈπŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ 

I’m sure they had no idea.πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘πŸ˜‘

I just don’t even get what people get out of chewing gum?  

To keep your breath fresh?

That’s why there’s mints.

Toothbrush and toothpaste.


Peppermint leaves.

Certain oils.

And so many more options. 

If you tell me it’s to curb your appetite, I would say, find another option.☝☝☝

To smoke or not to smoke?

Another BAD habit.


Just don’t do it.


Aside the obvious, CANCER.

There’s you smelling bad.

Your breath, yuck.

Ever be around someone who is a heavy smoker?

I can’t stand it, I have to walk away.

Literally makes me sick to my stomach.

And forget about dating someone who smokesπŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡

Did it once.

Never again!!!

Say please and thank you <3

It amazes me to this day that so many don’t?

Isn’t that like LIFE #101.

From the time my kids were little I taught them to say please and thank you!

And when they got a bit older I explained, having good manners will get you further than being smart☝☝☝

Very true!

It takes nothing to be nice, so be nice!

Thank you!

Shaking hands and making eye contact.βœ”βœ”βœ”πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„

Both extremely important when it comes to good manners.

It shows respect to whoever you are speaking with.

Everyone wants to feel acknowledged.

So make sure your body language is open, friendly and forthright.

Smile πŸ˜‰

That is a huge one in the manners department.

I am so turned off by people who don’t smileπŸ˜•πŸ˜•πŸ˜•

Not saying you need to walk around with a huge grin on your face all the time.

I’m saying when you pass someone by, you give a little smile (which says, I see you).

Sometimes it’s the smallest things that have the biggest meaning.πŸ’ŸπŸ’ŸπŸ’Ÿ

Because you never know who needs it πŸ™‚Inspire me! (7/7/19)

That’s a wrap!

Till next time,


Patricia <3 always
