The Vintage Badge

Lately, I have been needing an extra dose of T.L.C. I think that it is the sensitive pisces in me; but never the less, it is always nice to receive recognition and validation for all that you do. Simple compliments go a long way . . . but what if we took them a step further? What if we had merit badges that were awarded for each and every accomplishment we achieved in our daily lives? Seriously! Just this week alone, I have written a business plan manual, helped a friend with her creative venture, cleaned, cooked, and took care of my family and {foster} dog, "survived" a breast cancer scare in my family, and just last night, managed without electricity. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't NEED validation from anyone else but myself; BUT, for some reason, {i don't know if this can be attributed to my childhood. haha} I love to receive recognition and praise, every once in awhile! {yes, it helps the ego, and yes, i have still not gotten that far.} Overall, I think merit badges are a fantastic way to show someone gratitude and love, for the simple {or not so simple} things in our lives! Like . . .

  2. These are impossibly sweet! My sweetheart needs a fair amount of validation (by which I mean I hold him in my lap and coo how spoiled and impossible he is while he chuckles like a kid), and I bet these would do the trick!

  3. Merit badges are so much fun. I'd love to design a few of my own. I'm so glad you made it through this week (and that the breast cancer scare for your family member was only a scare). You definitely deserve some recognition -- and a very relaxing weekend.
