keep trying to prove myself

Its fair to say that most of us are constantly trying to prove ourselves!!!!
and most of the time its to others....
to prove we are worthy..
to prove we can do something...
prove we are as good as others...
and is anybody really bothered...( they're more interested in theirselves...fact )

And then sometimes ( especially in my case ) 
its about proving to oneself!!!
And I think its a lot harder job...
we as individuals... are very critical ..especially to ourselves..
that inner voice pushing us..questioning us..
' You could do that better '
' you could accomplish that if you tried harder '
' you could be a better wife/mother/friend '
' you could be kinder/more considerate '
' you could be slimmer '
' you could run faster '
' you could be more flexible '
And so it goes on ..... And where does it end...

the moral of the story ????

really?? who are you trying to kid ( my inner voice already !!!! LOL ) 😄😄

Portugal

A little bit about my 7 day break in Portugal...

 fotos by chardonnay 2017

Four of us ladies on a 7 day break in sunny Portugal ( which was very hot..about 30 degrees most days ) 
we were very fortunate and stayed in a beautiful villa belonging to someone we knew...to say it was amazing was an understatement.... beautifully and exquisitely furnished....with everything one could possibly need...in an amazing location...( yes you are waiting for the BUT? )
BUT....
and this is not a critisism 
it was too quiet for me personally
I like people watching..and I also like to be amongst the locals...local cafes...etc
( this was more for very wealthy british retirees )
We did go into Lagos one day  which I really enoyed...
beautiful cobbled narrow sreets...quaint cafes...a lovly marina..lots of locals mulling about... a few market stalls...lovly..
(unfortunately I did not take many fotos as I thought I would be returning to Lagos....sadly I did not)  I think the moral of this is always take the fotos when the opportunity arises..
( dont put off til tomorrow what you can do today !! )

Thank the Lord
