I need some advice...

I bought this dress in the dark green, and I'm so excited to get it. I'll most likely be wearing it with black opaque tights, and I was thinking that I may need a nice pair of ankle boots to complete the look... what do you all think? Obviously, they would also be black so as to blend with the tights and elongate my leg, rather than to cut it off...

I just want to talk about a few things I'm greatful for.

I had a rough weekend this last weekend, and I've had a bit of a rough week. It's really nobody's fault but my own for the most part, and I know that. I also know that sometimes I lose my temper to quickly, and I need to remember to be "slow to anger". I sometimes also get too easily offended. One more thing I need to work on... of the many. And all too often I stress and over analyze the silliest things. But one thing that helps me through all these negative behaviors is that my Heavenly Father blessed me with an incredible gift. A very forgiving personality. This is something that I am most thankful for everyday. I'm able to quickly forgive those who may offend me, and I'm able to forgive myself for having the awful attributes above. It helps me to see things from others point of views, and helps me to work on bettering myself. What are some of the gifts you've been blessed with?

Don't bring me down...

This is a post about how I NEVER stand up for myself. This is a post about how much I dislike liars. This is a post about how awesome my husband is. This is a post about how you should never let anyone bring you down. This is a post about how you should never let anyone make you feel guilty about things you have no control over. This is a post about how you should never let anyone make you feel small, unimportant, unglamorous, or stupid. This is a post about how you may not know how to face another day, but you do it anyways to prove everyone who never thought you could do it wrong. This is a post about not giving up, or throwing in the towel. Its a post about living your life, doing what makes you happy, and to hell with everyone who has a problem with that. This is a post about how you should never go behind someones back because you may think the worst of them. This is a post about doing what you can so that when the day comes, and you are called to answer for the life you've led, you can hold your head high, and with complete honesty, say, "I did my best, and didn't let anyone bring me down".
