Okay if you’re like me. You like reading blogs. Maybe you read them and think man these people are perfect!!!! I’m here to make sure you know that’s not the case!
You may like reading blogs that make you laugh out loud (and cry the best tears) like Momastery. Glennon is like my best friend I’ve never met or talked to (okay so maybe that makes me a stalker, but I don’t think so!) I love her writing style and her honesty. The way she views the world rocks and so does she!
Or maybe you want inspiration for a simpler life I love reading Heather at Want What You Have. Her ability to live debt free is one that I admire ahem pine for.
Perhaps you like to look at awesomely incredible photos. My friend from grad school, Mary, does an amazing job at Big Sky Love. Not to mention her son is adorable!
Or maybe it’s an awesome local blogger who you know you can learn from like Leslie at And Her Little Dog Too.
Whatever your reason. Whatever your pleasure. If you’re like me you read these blogs and think wowzers these chicks are awesome aka why am I such a hot mess?!?! And I know that all of them have probably written about this topic. Don’t get me wrong I’m not faulting them for being ridiculously awesome! They are ridiculously awesome. I’d even venture to say that they’ve all at one time or another let us in to some of their trickier sides. Things they don’t love as much about themselves or areas where they are looking to be real.
If you read my blog you may think this girl is rocking it. If you know me in real life you might think this girl is totally faking it. I hope that you don’t but you may. Here’s the thing. If I came on here and whined and complained and talked about every stupid aggravation in my life. You’d hate me and you’d be right to.
One – I have no freaking room to be whiny and complain-y ALL of the time and I already do that enough at home (thank God my husband doesn’t have a blog !) Also, that just doesn’t make for the best blogging. We all have enough Debbie Downer’s in our lives. I have been known to pull this crap occasionally. I’ve tried to curb it.
Really the whole point is this no matter what you read on here. No matter what I post. No matter how positive I seem or how together I appear to have it please know this. I’m a liar. Haha. Just kidding. But honestly I’m trying to make sense of this insanely crazy world just like you (or if you are all set and have figured it please call me!) I have some really amazing moments. Then I have these other moments where I feel like screaming is my only option.
The thing is it’s not easy. I don’t say that in a poor me kind of way. I just say it in a stuff is about to get real kind of way. Some days are awesome some days suck. Usually the days are a mix of both and I’m right there with ya. So that happy lady clip art. Yea that’s not what I look like.
