I know some who know me may not know this about me. Some may even find it hard to believe and think I am just being self critical. But it's 100% true - Anthony can testify to this.
I'm not saying it's always a negative thing either. Sometime this stubbornness works to my favour in helping me to not settle when I believe something is of true importance.
But there are other times when I am left with the nagging feeling that I need to apologise. Usually to my sweetheart.
He always accepts it though. He has to, I make his lunches and dinners.
There is something heavenly about knowing he is the one person who has seen all my 'ugly' sides over the last decade, but still calls he me beautiful every single day.
I think my stubbornness is part of my nature. I don't think I inherited it - I just came this way.
Perhaps that is why I have faced what feels like some difficult trials early in life; because my stubborn spirit needed such challenges to grow.
But how thankful I am for a stubborn spirit to carry me through these trials.
And even more so, I am grateful to this man who loves me when I wear pyjamas in the middle of the afternoon with my hair unbrushed and I am completely unshowered. And he still tells me I'm beautiful.
