Journaling


I did this layout last night (really simple, for me)...for some reason I couldn't get the title I wanted it to have to work for me. I worked on this sucker for a good 3 hours to get it "acceptable" in my eyes. (My own worst critic, as always) Anyway, the pictures are BLECH (Can we say, NO makeup? ICK!), but it's really the journaling that I want to talk about. It's about the neverending battle I fight to get myself to QUIT trying to please everyone all the time; to be myself, to allow people to like/love/hate me for who I am. I've touched on the subject before in a previous blog entry so I won't go into it too much, but I will say that it's a way of living that is VERY hard to change. Just when I feel like I've made progress, I find myself slipping, saying "yes" to something I'd rather say "no" to...forcing passion about something that, in reality, doesn't affect me...

You know what, though? I may slip, fall, and get up often. But I really am confident that I will be able to overcome this; that I'll triumph, win the battle. :) Just gotta keep tryin'!

    Amy, this layout is beautiful, just like you. :) Just keep true to your heart, be yourself, and the rest will follow. And can I say, that paper is to die for!!

    Great stuff, Amy... another people pleaser here and, you're right, it's hard to stay on the "say-no-when-you-mean-no" track! :)
