nothin' to prove



today was pretty great.
i had a hair appointment, which always lifts the spirits.
i also took a nap in the gorgeous weather {on my hammock} which doesn't happen very often.

but if i'm being [really] honest, today has had some hard moments too.
and i'm not going to dwell on them, but, let's just say,
i'm ending the day feeling super inadequate & really discouraged.

and what do i generally do when i feel inadequate & discouraged?
i cry. and give myself a migraine.

so, after a mini-pep-talk & hug from my husband before he left for work, two tylonol pm, a big glass of ice water & looking up all the scriptures on "enduring" in the topical guide of the scriptures...

i am headed to bed.
tomorrow, my "confidence will wax strong" & things will be okay.

and i'm going to remember the amazing sentiments of this inspiring post.
{i'm thinkin' about tattooing that poem on my forearm.}
k, not really, but it's so powerful. lovelovelovelovelovelove it.

here's to an amazing thursday! ♥
'night.

Hair appointments fix darn near anything. Or they should!

Off days are poopy. I hope tomorrow starts fresh and confident!

Things have a way of working out.

My old stand-by phrase, I know, but honestly, they do.

Love you.

Thank you for this post. im actually feeling like that--needing to justify/prove myself and what i think and stand my ground--RIGHT NOW! i feel drained and a lil sad at the same time. You have pretty red toes too--and how relaxing to rest on the hammock on a day like yesterday! :)
