A new blog site....and an insipired lo!

This lo is for a blog hop...featuring two of my favorite blogs and a new one, which is sure to become one of my favorites. The first two blogs are Sassy lil' SketchesI just adore the wonderful sketches this blog offers! So cute and inspiring! Next up is Scrap Fit I'm sure if you follow my blog you know about this group...the blog and the forum, are just awesome places to hang out! Next is a new blog...I can't begin to tell you all how excited I am to have found out about this blog! I just know I'm gonna be here again and again getting inspiration from these ladies...as is the case with all the blogs these ladies have stunning talent. I am so excited about what they use for inspiration, after all who else encourages the using of "Dirty" pics or pieces of life to scrap book! For those of you who know me...you will agree scrapping the good the bad and the ugly is something I have always done...so I can't believe it's taken me so long to find these seemingly soul mates! So check out Dirty Scraps What follows is the journaling for this lo! I hope it doesn't offend anyone...I was however inspired by the description I found on Dirty Scraps...I wanted to scrap the truth...as ugly as it may be! TFL




Though I call myself the strongest woman I know, I have come to understand other things about myself that really have nothing at all to do with strength. Some would even call them negative personality traits. The list I could make of these would be way to long for a simple lo. One of them however I will address. The "Bitch" . I am intimidating. When it comes to my family and loved one's. I will take a "No tolerance" policy. I will, have, and would again remove someone from my life for the simple crime of not being what's best for anyone in my inner sanctum. I speak my mind no matter who I may offend. I don't set out to hurt people, however I have been know to be more than a bit harsh at times. Sometimes this behaviour is mistaken for maliciousness. Though I do not mean it this way, I accept that being the kind of woman that I am will sometimes if not always lead me to be called or referred to as a "Bitch". It is my opinion that this term is given to any woman willing to stand-up and be vocal and passionate about her convictions. Also it should be said I really am a "Bitch". I'm mean m unforgiving, act out in callousness, unapologetic-even when I should be-selfish, narcissistic, snobbish envious, unsatisfied, harsh, rude, loud, all knowing. Yep all those qualities, add up to the (in my opinion) definition of the modern day term "Bitch". So while it makes me proud when perhaps it shouldn't I will wear the label proudly. I will be proud that even though the term may be derogatory, to some and may offend, to me it is simply me being true to the woman I am inside. I believe being courageous enough to be the woman I am with no excuses or apologies may be the most important lesson I ever teach my daughter.
