Cackling like a madwoman I snapped this photo of my closet that I had so meticulously organized about a year ago. My husband and the boys came running to see what was so funny. Obviously, they were disappointed to find that the source of my humor had nothing to do with bodily fluids or gasses (because that is the only thing that my 3,5 and 7 year old boys find funny). I was laughing at the reality of the mess.
Here’s the thing, I love blogging and I love inspiring others. I read and listen to my own words as much as I write them. The reality is…I am far from perfect. I have lots of things I want to improve on, I do get behind on my housework, I also yell at my kids occasionally. I have forgotten birthday parties, put my foot in my mouth on several occasions and I confess to periodically getting pissed at my husband for absolutely nothing! I have bounced checks, backed into parked cars, let my kids watch TV all day and accidently passed gas one time in church (in my defense I was only 20- but it still). I never write my blogs from a place of judgement..we are all in this together. We are all striving to be the best we can be: as mothers, wives, friends and daughters.
My dream is that this blog is received as inspirational and constructive. We all deserve to be recognized for the amazing job we are doing each and every day. None of us is perfect and I don’t even think that I am close! However, I am willing to admit that I need help on all kinds of things and I do apologize when I am wrong or offend others. Finally, I have the desire to improve on some key areas of my life. I am constantly working on living in the moment, enjoying life’s simple pleasures (yesterday I went for a walk and I could smell every single flower I passed along the way) and cherishing my kids.
Thanks for reading and supporting this site/blog. Every time I get feedback from my readers I am inspired to continue writing and striving to recognize amazing moms. On that note, I am going to clean that closet after the kids go to bed and it probably won’t be the last time that I do it either!
