You-are-good-enough

After completely blanking on something to draw for @superirishbreakfasttea‘s rom-com challenge fic, I got to thinking, and realized that I have never drawn a Fitzsimmons kiss. How have I never done that? It’s unacceptable! I have let my fandom down! So I decided to draw a scene from the final chapter of her excellent fic Look On Tempests instead. And here you have it: Fitzsimmons face smoosh! It was a little harder than I anticipated, but I enjoyed the challenge and overall I’m pleased with how it turned out. Hope you guys enjoy it!

wooohoooo we made it! my 1000th post on this blog! thank you to everyone who’s followed me during the 2-3 years this blog has been up, and here’s to the next 1000 posts! (which, let’s be honest, will probably be mostly tom lmao)

also in case anyone’s interested, here’s the first ever post on this blog

When you marry, you become one flesh so you’re giving your life to them as you’ve given it to Christ. If you don’t understand the truth in how dying with Christ is the same as getting married to Christ, you won’t find the freedom in your heart to love who you’re married to as Christ has. A ring isn’t automatic love. God is love. Anyone can marry, it takes knowing God to love.

Despite what you may believe, you can disappoint people and still be good enough. You can make mistakes and still be capable and talented. You can let people down and still be worthwhile and deserving of love. Everyone has disappointed someone they care about. Everyone messes up, lets people down, and makes mistakes. Not because we’re inadequate or fundamentally inept, but because we’re imperfect and fundamentally human. Expecting anything different is setting yourself up for failure.

You are the only person who is in charge of how you feel about yourself. Nobody else can possibly do that. You get to decide if you believe you are beautiful or not, and nobody can take it away from you. If someone suggests that you aren’t beautiful, you can consider how sad it is that they have such a limited view of beauty. You can consider how unfortunate it is that they have such an exaggerated sense of self-importance that they think you should care about what they think. You can also choose to realize that it has nothing at all to do with your beauty and everything to do with their limitations.
