When I was little one of my favorite things to do was arts and crafts. Whatever I was making, I had to use glitter. Glitter was essential to putting those last finishing touches on the finished product. 

As most people know when they or their little one uses glitter, it is very fine. Glitter is like sand but softer and smaller. Inevitably no matter how you try to contain the glitter as you place it on the art project it falls everywhere. You can vacuum for hours and still there are always small traces of glitter found days, months, sometimes years later.

A Sophisticate is a diamond because she becomes more of what people expect of her. A Sophisticate sparkles because she is a diamond and when she leaves the people she comes into come into contact with a trace of something that shines. 

A Sophisticate has charisma. What is charisma? According to Webster's Dictionary it is defined as: (n). A special charm or appeal that causes to people to feel attracted and excited by someone. 

When referring to a Sophisticate in the 21st Century, charisma is defined as: verb (v.)  The ability to make everyone one comes into contact with feel special and important. To have a particular 'Je Ne Sais Quoi' personality trait that leaves another person with a feeling of increased worth or value.

A Sophisticate is independent. Emotionally independent, her self reliance and self assurance is  what allows her to be confident. Her confidence allows her dance through life with decisiveness and grace.

A Sophisticate doesn't walk into a room and shut the lights off. She walks into a room and turns the lights on not only with the light switch but with her personality. Her charismatic personality leaves traces of glitter or 'sparkle' wherever she goes. In the darkest circumstances of life her smile and her inner beauty shines like a ray of light.

In the end, a Sophisticate sparkles because of the quality of her heart, the happiness she feels from being alive, her independence, the light that she brings to each person through her personality and with her smile, and the gift she brings to the world simply by being alive. ;D
