Day 17

Better late than never?! I hope so. I am not very good at taking compliments or praise from people. It comes from not believe in myself, not thinking I'm good enough, not thinking anything I do is good enough. I usually smile and nod and say thank you but I don't believe it. I think they must be out to lunch or they are just trying to be nice. It's not good. I need to learn to say thank you and MEAN it and BELIEVE what they are saying to me.

I totally love this Heather! I am totally the same way! I've had to tell myself over and over just to say thank you instead of the regular "this old thing," type of response. Great page!

ps. I really am going to finish my layouts one of these days and send them to you, lol!

I mean every word of thanks, praise and support I give you. Just think of it as one of my big hugs that shows you just how much I love you.
(I think I also need to heed your words of advice more).
Tell that handsome hubbie of yours to give you a hug from me.
Love you lots!!!

Love this page.
I really feel the same way as you some times.
It's hard not believing in one self, But, I'm sure you can work on it, and one day take all those compliments and good words, you are getting, to your heart.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts and being such an inspiration. ;-)

Heather, that is something that I stuggle with too, I am terrible at taking compliments. I lvoe that you did a page about this. I hope that you learn to believe people too when they complement your God given gifts!!! You truly are a talent, in so many areas!

Glad to know that it's not only me that struggles with this. A great reminder for sure. I love the ribbon tie with different ribbons on there. The black, white and red are striking.
