Who Are You Trying to Impress?

Each time I say I am going to not wait and do my laundry I should know I am lying to myself 🙁  

I just came back home from doing one of two trips for today as I plan to spend Thanksgiving with my husband in Houston. Its amazing how many little lies we can tell ourselves everyday, but at what cost? Who are we trying to impress?

The first person you have to break out of bondage from is yourself before you can think of breaking free from anyone else.
