I felt compelled to write this today as I started to feel guilty about not doing this, falling behind on that, forgetting about that and, ugh, ooh! and blah, blah blah and I thought: enough!
I'm done feeling guilty.

  2. Des. Thank you for reminding us that we are human and I always don't need to be wearing my super hero cape (disguised as an apron).

    This was PERFECT!

  3. I'm not feeling guilty today ! Maybe a little tired now x x x x

  4. @ Citlalli-- You're welcome! It was in the air, glad you connected! :D

    @ Maria- Absolutely! Sometimes we have to take off that cape and put our feet up and relax without the to-do list pressuring us to get up and work. So glad you liked my post! :D

    @ Charlotte- tired= is me everyday... sleep and me need to get together more :)


  5. thank you for this! feeling guilty does nothing!

  6. omg... almost all of these hit home. it's so true though... guilt is just so counterproductive.

  7. I love this! I have come to the conclusion that guilt is mostly a wasted emotion. The people who should feel it ...Like murderers or abusers... don't feel it. . Meanwhile good people feel guilty for little things like forgetting to return a call or accidentally saying the wrong thing! I am trying to teach myself not to spend time feeling guilty for little things. Thanks for this reminder!!

  8. You are awesome. Thank you so much for the follow yesterday, and I'm so happy I could find your blog AND your shop--I'm drooling over all of your pretty pieces! I think I'll be purchasing that boss lady one soon. :)

    @Chantilly- so glad some of these hit home and yes! soooo counter-productive! Now, if we can only remind ourselves of that when we make ourselves feel guilty :)

    @ Jenny P- I couldn't agree with you more about it being a wasted emotion! & yes, we need to stop beating ourselves up for the small things! thank you for sharing your thoughts with me! :D

    @ Amy- I LOVE YOUR BLOG! thank you for making me smile with your comment! & "boss lady" is one of my favs. :)
