Let me tell you, I am so glad to be home!
I’ve definitely been more sporadic than intended on posting these link love posts. This week I didn’t have much time to even read blogs, so that’s why this is delayed – oh the joys of working out of town.
Let me tell you, Merlin was one happy kitty when I got home on Friday night. He spent nearly all night sleeping on me and attempted to burrow his head in the crook of my elbow just to get closer to me.

Needing to always be right. – Confident people take a stand not because they think they’re always right, but because they’re not scared to be wrong. Cocky, conceited people tend to take a position and then preach, argue, and totally disregard differing opinions or points of view. They “know” they’re right (even when they’re wrong) and they want (actually, they need) you to know it too. Their behavior isn’t a sign of confidence, though; it’s the trademark of a bully. Truly confident people don’t mind being proven wrong. They know that finding out what is right is a lot more important than being right. And when they’re wrong, they’re secure enough to back down graciously and appreciate the lesson learned.
