I have a hard time reading other people's blogs sometimes, because they all seem so . . . put-together. Here I am, almost 30, and most days? I still have no idea what I'm doing. I work at it, but there are days that my hair is a mess, my jeans are covered in snot, and my house looks like a tornado went through it. And if I'm completely honest, those days are more common than I'd like to admit.
Last night, Miles and I were playing with some activity boxes I had put together. (More on those another day. Promise). We were laughing and giggling, and best of all, Miles was learning. Miles called for Daddy to come see, and Patrick ended up recording a short video of us. Then, he e-mailed the video to family. And I realized, this was on my highlight reel. And if I review that highlight reel? I'm doing pretty okay.
And honestly, if I review my behind-the-scenes? I'm still doing okay. I'm not perfect. I will never claim to be. But in the end, that's completely okay. Because perfection is not only boring, it's false.
So, I will continue to post my highlights as well as my behind-the-scenes footage. And occasionally, I'll even share the bloopers. Because that, my friends, is real. And I think it's important to share what's real. Not just what's perfect.
