Hello and welcome to Gorgeous Life Blog! It is a pleasure to have you. If this is your first time visiting, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Victoria, this is my cozy little corner of the web where I talk about elegance and personal growth. Today I’m going to talk about the benefits of being classy.
A couple of years ago I decided to change my entire life. I wanted to become healthy, happy, and elegant. I spent months doing research on etiquette, fashion, finance, and everything in between. After I gathered *tons* of information, I turned all of my notes into action and fast forward to the present day, I am so proud of the woman I have become.
I knew that changing my life would make me happier and more secure, but I certainly wasn’t prepared for the lessons that I learned and continue to learn each day. Truth is, that at first when I thought about elegance I simply pictured it like most people do-being dressed to kill, mysterious, confident, and kind. I quickly learned that true elegance is so much more than that.
By working toward the highest version of myself, I slipped into a magical portal of self discovery, self love, healthier habits, beautiful and blissful daydreams, increased self esteem, and so much more. Looking back at those incredible moments, I realized that the importance of being classy is something that needs to be brought to light.
Classy women are highly regarded
Perhaps one of the best benefits of being classy is that people naturally want to level up themselves to match you. I was reading an article the other day talking about Travis Barker and Kourtney Kardashian’s new relationship when I found a gem that I was not expecting to find.
In an interview, Travis was talking about how he used to have a crush on Kim Kardashian in the past, but what he said specifically proves this point. “I [Travis] had a crush on [Kim] and we were flirtatious but nothing ever happened. I don’t know! She was just so kind and polite, I just felt like being a perfect gentlemen around her.”
Classy, kind women attract people who respect them and treat them the way they deserve to be treated. Classy women are admired and can hypnotize people with their charm.
My favorite benefit of being classy: Your mental health improves
I definitely didn’t see this one coming. I felt a significant, positive change in my overall mental health as I started to become an elegant woman. This comes directly from all of my effort to create a healthy, happy, mind.
Before I began my life transformation I was not in a good place mentally. I was unhappy with my life and it caused me to become sad and depressed. Looking back, it was a pretty dark time in my life. Ever since I have been putting forth an effort to make monumental changes in my life, my happiness levels have improved dramatically. I can say with confidence that I am the happiest and healthiest that I have ever been.
Being elegant leads to better opportunities
Low quality, petty behavior will not open as many doors in life as elegance and kindness will. People will respect you more if you are mature and emotionally strong. When you don’t behave with class, high quality people won’t want to associate with you. This will make you miss out on good opportunities in life either in business, or friendships.
Society tries to make it seem like being vulgar and having no morals is the way to go when that is simply not true. Most people want to associate with someone who has values, standards, and morals.
Being classy is timeless
I don’t know about you but I personally get exhausted with trends. The fashion trends, the social media trends, the technology trends, and everything between. Trends are truly overwhelming to me and trying to keep up with what’s new is something that I have very little interest in.
Elegant women aim to be timeless, so they aren’t too focused on what is trending. They are well aware that the trend will disappear in no time, so they often times don’t waste their energy trying to keep up with trends. Out of all of the benefits of being classy, this is one that I wasn’t aware of until I became more elegant. I wasn’t trying to keep up with what everyone else was doing, I was focusing on things that were more sustainable and would stand the test of time.
