I'm the kind of person that wants to make everything better for everyone I love or care about.  Not many people understand that or appreciate it. It's who I am and over the past few weeks I have come to realize I really like that part of myself. As a matter of fact, I really like who I am. I can be enthusiastic, energetic, and passionate but I'm also a loyal and caring friend. I have values which I stick to and if  my character rubs someone the wrong way, that's their problem, not mine.  I try to avoid conflict and confrontation when possible but I'm learning to standup for what I believe. I'm reminded of a girl that used to pick on me in 5th. grade. She was so mean! I used to walk home from school and she used to follow me home and push me down in the mud or snow. I used to cry and ask God why she was so mean to me. Now I realize she did it to make herself feel like a bigger, stronger person. Well I know I didn't do anything then and was basically the same person back then that I am now. There will always be that 1 person trying to push me down in the mud or snow. I can't control them but I can control  who I am after. My husband made a good point. He said, don't change who you are, it makes you special and I love who you are. Well guess what?! So do I. S all those people who may not understand me or dislike something about me, tuff shit. I'm a good person and I like me and that's all that matters!

Ps. I used to do something with my kids everyday that I called 1 good thing. Today my 1 good thing was, my Beckaboo made cookies and she's going to wash the dishes from dinner :) hint hint ;)

  1. Being blunt, up front, honest...pulling no punches and telling things like they are without sugar coating them is not a character's a character trait. It has it's consequences and at times it may not even be appropriate, but we all need that from time to time. As long as your heart is in the right place, and it always is, then I don't see a problem. Love ya babe
