EAJC #35, Strength...

Em has yet another great prompt (and card to inspire) this week... what is your idea of strength, what do you consider your strengths to be?
My card is made up of torn japanese paper adhered with mod podge, some $2 letter stickers from the newsagent, mine freestyle word quote by Margaret Mead and the ever trusty monthly calendar from my Sududo desk diary...

I consider my main strength to be that I am an optimist. I am the one to always see the silver lining. It kinda drives my friends a bit mad at times, but mostly they are totally loving it, especially when I get it right against all the odds. Thats real fun!

I like this strength in me.
It is who I am.
Only, sometimes this strength can lead to great disappointment by others inability to turn a bad situation to gold.... but hey, thats what makes *me* ME and them ::them:: I suppose *smile* AND I have learned not to hold expectations on others, just myself.

Of course... I DO have crap, blue, rotten, funky days, but ultimately I will always see a better solution than the one I was thinking of...

Life is as good as you make it, believe and realise... its just that simple.
Enjoy

Awesome card & fabulous journalling.
I always try to see the bright side but always end up with the crud. That's why I turned to crafting because it makes me feel fantastic.
