For JOURNAL 52 this week, the prompt was "Wise Words" and here's what I came up with:
|"You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it." - Margaret Thatcher|
Oh, so true Ms. Thatcher...in so many different areas of life...
It sometimes seems like all the battles I fight are constantly repeating in a never ending cycle.
I wonder if other people feel that way too, or is it something I do to myself?
I guess the point is to keep fighting, right? And one day, I'll be out of the trenches.
I'm looking forward to that.

I went a little different for this face, as facial perfection is one of my constant battles. I went back and watched some of the videos for Jane Davenport's "Express Yourself" workshop, especially the lesson about eyes. I think this girl's eyes are very much "Jane" eyes...or at least the closest I could get her to have. I was thinking about going back in and fixing the shading around those "Jane" eyes, until I realized that it kind of looked like the girl has two black eyes from all the battles she's constantly fighting...then I decided I like those shiners she's got and decided to let them alone. She's earned her battle scars!
