Quiet Confidence

by Cait

You ever just have one of those days? The ones where you find yourself yelling at someone before you’ve even had your morning coffee. Just yelling. Yelling because you hurt for them, and you’re scared for them & what they’re doing to themselves. Yelling because over the years you’ve lost so many people who mean the world to you in ways that were unavoidable, and all you want to do is hold on to the ones who are making the conscious decision to cut you out. Yelling and realizing that no one is listening. So you leave, get your morning coffee, and sit by the river for a while, not listening to the crab fisherman yelling at you from their boat.

On days like that I like to turn to my friend Pinterest and my Well Said pinboard. Whether it’s pinning new things that strike a chord with me, or rereading old things I’ve pinned. Definitely a healthier way of dealing with things than yelling, texting, ranting, or taking my feelings out on someone else. Sometimes I screen cap a particularly poignant one and make it the lock screen wallpaper on my phone for a while.

Here are a few of the things that are sticking with me today. In no particular order, and with no further explanation.
