I like peace. You got a problem with that?

I'm just not one of those people who picks a fight for the fun of it.  Sure, I'll mess with people, but only if it's funny; never to start an actual conflict.  I agree to disagree.  I'm a lover, not a fighter.  Live and let live, everyone's entitled to their opinion, let it go - that's me.

Anyway, this whole topic makes me feel defensive, but don't worry.  I'm not a sissy or a doormat.  And it turns out you can accomplish a lot with a raised eyebrow and a "Pardon ME?!"

That's all for now.

Love Shelley!


  1. Love the page Shelley and I totally agree. I work very hard everyday in MANY different scenarios to avoide major confrontation and to learn to let stuff go when I can. :-) Not easy, but essential to maintaining some Peace in my life. ----Jenny (from BAJ)

  2. I definately agree! I prefer peace over crappy stuff! :O) Love the page..the colors and the text and of course the imagery... is fantastic! xoxo

  3. Beautiful page Shelley. No need to feel defensive. It's who you are and it's exactly as it should be. I'm the same way. More people should be like us. I hate it when people pick fights or say things that they know will piss me off on purpose. Welcome to my family, lol.

  4. I agree with your sentiments exactly. Peace is better than turmoil and stress. I also have had to just ignore comments from people who were just trying to be difficult. Life is too short to allow other people to dictate our emotional life. Good job on the page-very creative.

  5. This is a gorgeous piece and if they are YOUR feelings, there is no reason to make excuses that they aren't right. They are! I think the world conditions us to think/act/feel a certain way, then we second guess ourselves if it doesn't fit some mold. I love the page.

  6. Thanks for coming by my blog...I love this page, letting go is the hard part of any conflict, I find...Peace is best.

  7. Live and let live has been my favorite saying since high school. If more people would let just one more slight go by the world would find more peace. Some people enjoy riling others and by not reacting they get their due. Very nice page.

  8. I think you've got the right attitude. I tend to let my emotions rule me, but I'm trying to take more deep breaths and let the unimportant things go.

    I think your lettering is fantastic!


I would love to hear what you think...
