Some people don’t need affirmations, because they are confident and nothing bothers them. I am not one of those people.
The two on the top have been in my wallet for years, but they were so faded that I had to remake them. They are probably too difficult to read, but this is what they say.
“Do you know what happens when you decide to stop worrying about what other people might think of you? You get to dance. You get to sing. You get to laugh loudly, paint, write, and create. You get to be yourself. And you know what? Some people won’t like you. Some will laugh or mock or point out flaws… but it just won’t bother you all that much.
That is the one with the beach image. I got the quote on Facebook several years ago, but when I decided to put the text on a business card for my wallet, I thought it needed a picture. I found a nice beach picture. That one was so faded that you couldn’t even see a beach anymore.
The camouflage one is very difficult to read. This card also had a beach background, but I changed it to camo, and when you read the last line you will know why I changed it.
We’re all broken and damaged, and we aren’t quite fixed yet.
A lot of us have gone through hell, but you know what? We came back. We came back stronger.
You know why? Because we are warriors, and warriors fight.
Tonight I found a new quote on Facebook and decided this one HAS to go in my wallet. I’ve been confronted by people who are hell bent on trying to prove me wrong, and nothing I say or do will ever convince them that I am not as bad as they insist I am. And the more they try to trip me up, the more I trip up. That’s why I have to keep this card in my wallet to read when I am confronted by them.
“Never waste your time trying to explain who you are to people who are committed to misunderstanding you.”
The last one is actually on my fridge. I printed it several years ago on 4×6 photo paper, and I figured while I am remaking these cards and adding that last one, I may as well add this one to my wallet.
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
I printed these cards on a full size sheet of photo paper and cut them out and laminated them so they don’t fade out again. Believe me, it’s worth it.
