Are ghetto girls a turn on?


Are ghetto girls a turn on?
If you were to call me ghetto. I'd say thanks for the compliment!

You can take the girl out of the ghetto but you can't take the ghetto out of the girl. If you were to call me ghetto. I'd say thanks for the compliment!

What does being "ghetto" have to do with dating or finding the love of your life.

More from YourTango: Have You Let Yourself Go?

Because there's no better time than now to work on yourself as much as possible as a single woman. Grow yourself so you can grow as a person both personally and professionally.

You will be more attractive and meeting a high caliber guy will be a lot easier. How you do anything is how you do everything. So I thought I'd talk about 2 habits that I think women should work to break.

Habit #1 Proscrastination

Habit #2 Perfectionism

Procrastination and perfectionism often go hand in hand. Do you put things off because they’re never good enough? If you spend all your time trying to make things perfect, it’s no surprise they NEVER get done. It’s said that successful people fail more than unsuccessful people. Why do I think it’s important? You can learn from your mistakes. You can correct your mistakes. When you’re starting something you might have to get through those ackward stages and it might seem “Ghetto” but if you stay the course and work to refine it, correct it & polish it, it can end up being darn “Fabulous”.

Growing up in the gritty Iberville projects in New Orleans gave me the proper credentials to be called "Ghetto Fabulous” but I thought it would now be an appropriate time to update the definition of “Ghetto Fabulous”.

I think a woman who is “Ghetto Fabulous” strives for excellence versus perfection. She is willing to take risks and is not afraid of messing up or making mistakes during the process. She doesn't have a severe case of "Worrying About What Other People Think Syndrome".  Get it? You are living your life fully flawed & all.

You see when you’re “Ghetto Fabulous” you are living your life full out today. You're not waiting for tomorrow. You especially don't put off til tomorrow what you know you should do today. You're going for it! You are making things happen, getting stuff done now, no matter where you live or where you're at in your life.

You're not hiding out and missing out on life because you're "Not Perfect".

Write this on a note card & carry it in your purse. Excellence is better than perfection…

More from YourTango: What Not To Wear

A short time ago I would say I'm a "Perfectionist" as if it were a badge of honor. It's amazing what happened when I let that go in my life. I know I can’t be perfect but I can be excellent. Excellence is not the same as perfection. Perfection is not attainable, and chasing it is like trying to squeeze your booty in jeans that don't fit. However you can be excellent exactly where you are right now. That’s right you can go the extra mile & strive for excellence now. You will feel more confident.

What does that mean?
