Not saying sorry...

One of my biggest struggles in Kung Fu has not been the moves, although those kick my behind, nope it's been saying I'm sorry. I am just a very apologetic person. I even said I was sorry when I gave birth to Matthew...I'm sorry I'm not pushing hard enough and etc.

So I am really working on not saying I'm sorry for things that really don't need to be apologized for. This is HUGE for me.

So...with that being said, I am NOT saying I'm sorry for not having a card ready yet today. LOL!

Both my kids got promoted last night at Kung Fu. Belle to yellow belt and Matthew to brown. I'm so proud of them. But in all that's been going on, my creative juices are just not flowing. So I am NOT sorry I don't have a card but it'll come soon!!

I also am "cleaning house" so to speak in my blogland. I have several blogs that seemed like the right thing at the time but it's just too hard to keep up with so from now on I'll just share everything on this one! It's my blog and I'll say what I want to...LOL!

With that here's a quote I found that I thought fitted me pretty good right now....

When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.

- Franklin D. Roosevelt

I love Franklin Roosevelt. He always had a doo thing to say!

I've been kind of having a creative slump too. All I've gotten done is this week is DT stuff!

What a lovely quote to share :o)

Karen Wilson said...

I love that saying!

I'm the same in regards to saying sorry. I appologize for everything as well. I was also in a slump not that long ago and my creativity seems to really come and go these days. We have our monthly scrapbook/cardmaking club tmw night and I'm to have cards done up to showcase the Sept CTMH SOTM and I haven't even started them. Not in the mood! LOL! As for the blogs..I'm finding the same thing with Ashleigh's. It's hard keeping up to everything.

Congrats to Belle and Matthew! That's great! They should be very proud of themselves.

Hope you have a good day today!

I think we are a lot alike!!! Because you are not saying your sorry, but you still had to let us know why your not saying your sorry and that is so so so me!!! Good for you I have found lately that not having a card every day is just a fact of life, but I still feel bad about it often though I am not sure why!!!

Congrats to the kids good for them!!!

You have a great day and if it is a no card day then that is just fine!!!!

You go girlfriend! No pressures to post or even comment every day from this end. We do haves lives outside of blogging and well there is just no need for apologies.

First way to go Matthew and Belle.
Great job.

Now great job on not saying 'I'm sorry'. I have the same problem most of the time, but trying to learn not to do that.

You have grown in so many ways lately that I am amazed. Wish I could grow in areas of my life that I have seen in your.
Keep up the good work.

Congrats to the kiddos...that is a big accomplishment!
