An Empty Novel

Click photo TO ENLARGE

Saw this Comic this morning and thought it was the cutest thing. This is how I've always felt as a woman. I mean, don't get me wrong, it's very flattering to have someone compliment me on my appearance--This happens hourly! But when someone comments on my BRAINS I go nutz! I take it to the head like a shot of Coconut Malibu w/Pineapple juice! *Inside Joke*

I hate it when women get so caught up in their appearances. Beauty is skin deep and will only last for so long. So why do we try to perfect that which is unperfect. You know God didn't make you perfect, you were born into sin, so why not fill that unperfect body with some valuable information. Something you can use to make your life better. Anything you want to know you can know.

Matthew 7:7"

Ask, and it shall be given you;seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:"

What good is a novel that has a beautiful cover,
a cover that was so beautifully illustrated that all eyes fixate on the book,
a cover so beautiful that everyone picks up the book.
But when they pick it up its a bunch of empty pages. (Not literally empty, figuratively) For those of us that are Empty novels, what I mean is , the BOOK WAS CRAP! It had nothing to offer anyone once the book had been read.
No meaningful motifs
No mind boggling plots
No content to take away with you and incorporate in life
Nothing even worth sharing with a stranger

Now, knowledge, intelligence, wisdom--THIS WILL TAKE YOU FAR!!

I can't begin to tell you how much I value my education, but I'm not one of those people that care to have a million and one degrees under mybelt. I just want to get the most money doing what I LOVE--Practicing Law. I really feel that practicing law is my purpose. If that means I have to go to college for 4 years then spend another 3 in Law school and then maybe another 3 or 4 trying to get some other degree then that's just what I'll have to do. But if that is not my destiny God will redirect me.
In any event I will never be an Empty Novel.
I have too much to offer.
But don't get it twisted--I'm a DIVA, yea I know my name is Princess ya'll but Diva fits in here so let's go with that. I love getting all dolled up and going out. I do the nails thing every 2 weeks, I do the feet thing very often, and the hair has to look right. My shoe game is ridiculous and my style is on point.
But aside from all the physical things I push 3.8's in college with a fulltime job.

My personality makes people want to know me and the way I treat people makes people stay in my life.

The moral if this story is Don't be an empty novel
