I am probably going to have a over load on my blog for a few days because I have so much I want to share from the seminar I attended!
First off my copy of The Queens Code is a USED copy. Meaning I have well used it!!! I was embarrassed to take it with me to the seminar so I bought me a new book to take. But then as I was packing I realized I need my book because I have everything marked. So I stuck it in my bag. Alison offered to autograph books, and I looked at my book and asked myself, "do i dare?". Well I gave it to the seminar assistant and she added it to the pile of books to be signed. When I went to pick up my book, they shared with me that Alison wanted to know if it would be okay if they took a picture of my book! I went from being embarrassed about my book, to still embarrassed about my book but with a little bit of awe I hope her seeing it made her feel extra good!
I love Alison Armstrong work. I have pretty much read or listened to all of her material. It goes so well with all the information that I have been studying on how to have a wonderful marriage. They all just mesh so well! The Queens Code highlights so well the difference between men and women, and how we can't change each other, but we need to learn how each other work and think and then adapt our actions to work with their gender traits. I love it!
I would have to say that one of the highlights of the conference was the men panel. There were 4 men that answered our questions that we had written. It was really a eye opener to hear it from them. After studying Alison's work on her studies of men, and learning how they work, to actually listening to men validate everything I have been learning was amazing! It was actually very tender. Something that really touched me was they all at one time or another shared that they, as a man, honored and cherished women. They used the world cherished specifically. It touched me.
I also love the comment, "A woman's smile is as good as it gets". Do we have any idea what our smiles mean to the men around us? And are we sharing that gift with them enough? It really got me thinking. If a smile means that much to them, shouldn't we work that much harder to provide it for them? I know I am finding lots of things to smile about lately! And if a smile really warms my hubby's heart I don't want to hold back! So go about your day, be the best person you can be, and share your uniquely yours smile! You'll make his day.!
