Self Portrait Challenge - New Year's Resolution "Be Affirming"


I am a quiet person.


In the words of one personality book, I'm a "Melancholy."

In the words of another, I'm an "Avoider."

In the DISC model, I'm a "C" (Cautious).



Consequently, one of the reaccurring issues of my 20 year relationship

with my outgoing, passionate husband has been my talking -

lack of.



So once again, one of my resolutions this year

is to be affirming.

Verbally.

Often!


It works real good.

I'm the same way. It's very difficult for me to verbalize a lot of my feelings.. therefore, I write. But I've found it's really important for me to be more outward in expressing my views and feelings for Faith's sake, so this is something I work on daily.

Great resolution - and I love the pictures!!

Good resolution. I too try to say at least a few affirming things to each person in my household a day...even if that day I have to rack my brains to come up with an honest one! :->
