Does this look inspired?

This is a picture of my kitchen sink.  I took this picture around noon and my kitchen looked like this last night too.  If I had one of those panoramic cameras to show you the rest of the room, you might have declared us to be absolute pigs over here on Walnut Ave.  I called one of my girlfriends this morning and laughed- who I am to write an inspired mom blog- if anyone dropped by to say hello, I would have some of explaining to do, because things sort of fell apart for me yesterday.  Not only did I neglect to empty the dishwasher and do the dishes but I also left beds unmade all day and ordered pizza for dinner.

My girlfriend eased my mind by reminding me it is impossible to be motivated/inspired every day.  Even with her reassurance, I felt a moral obligation to bring my “lack of motivation” to my readers because my friend is right.  Even if you are extremely motivated to reach a goal, there will be days when the energy to move forward is difficult to muster. The key to staying on track is that you allow yourself to have unproductive days or weeks- then you refocus and get back on track.  

Now, if my husband is reading this (he has been out of town for 5 days) and sees this picture, he’ll know what goes on when he’s not around to help out!

  1. I couldn’t agree more Kristin. We’re not all inspired everyday and it’s nice to know that I’m not the only one who doesn’t have it all together all the time…even most of the time. We’re all just human!

  2. A-Men! I guess the moral of the story is that life isn’t about being brilliant all of the time but that it’s the moments of brilliance that make life good. Good story.

  3. Kristin,
    I just wanted to say that as i’m reading “The inspired mom”, there are bags of groceries sitting on my kitchen counter. Many of them are full of junk food for the kids, because I was in too much of a hurry to think of “healthy snacks” for their lunchboxes. There must be a “Healthy Snacks for Lunchboxes” guide out there somewhere. or…………should we start one??? anyway, you should be feel good that i’m reading this instead of putting away the groceries!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Amy, the idea of healthy snacks is a great topic. I’ll do some research and will post some ideas. PS I hope that you don’t have melting popsicles or ice cream in those grocery bags! Thanks for reading.
