Dreams and Dilemmas

I'm back and still wistful about the lovely weekend I have just enjoyed in Canberra with many lovely crafty, bloggy friends. Life is definitely busy at the moment and keeps rolling on, no matter how concerted my efforts are to enjoy and stretch out a happy weekend. I aim to blog about SIT 2012 very soon.

Not wanting to be deliberately secret squirrel but still needing to get it all out of my head (hence the 4am wake up and 5am blog post), I've got some major decisions to make this week and I'm definitely struggling with the 'too nice' side of my personality. The people pleaser side. The always say yes side.

How do you deal with putting yourself first but still wanting to make sure that the other person/s are happy too? It's a big thing to be a grown up and put yourself first and I'm definitely still learning on how to do that effectively. I could rave on about girls and our societal brainwashing of them in that they must be 'nice' and 'do the right thing' all the time. But it's too early in the morning even for me for that topic....

So instead I'll share with you a photo of my gorgeous gal and I that I took the other week to record the loss of her two front teeth.  Too cute!

Wish me luck and please send me be strong vibes for today!

being a grown up isnt always what its cracked up to be i agree. sometimes wish i had more testosterone going on. instead i surround myself by people who fill me with positive energy & cut the others loose ( & try to do so diplomatically) as for you my dear, i am so happy i met you & can add you to my positive list ;) you were loads of fun & i hope your head clears soon :)

Too nice, of course, you just balance it, as we give & take in our families as needed. You'll nail it, you always will, awesome gal, love Posie
