But I have a small collection of blogs I love to read regularly (mostly holistic parenting), and a handful I check in with occasionally (mostly for sewing/crafting inspiration), and though this has been an activity I can happily squeeze into lil' snippets of 'me time', I have often felt that so many blog writers are, perhaps, a little afraid to show the 'less than perfect' sides of their lives... Could this be so?
As a mama on my own journey (or journey's! So many, intertwining journeys!) I sometimes find it hard not to compare myself to others who 'appear' to be 'doing it better'. I know this kind of behaviour is counterproductive, I know, and I am learning, a lil' more every day, to be gentle with myself.
I know I am not alone with this kind of sentiment, and I have always appreciated the times when bloggers, or people in general, are brave enough to share their real-ness.
But don't get me wrong- I have a constant hunger for all that is positive, bright, inspirational and beautiful! I just want mine to have balance :-). Perfectionism is just not my kind of cuppa!
So here I go! Please consider this my attempt to show smidges of my life, as it really is, the beautiful, and the not so much; the real, and the magical (though I do believe those last two fit together perfectly, when we let them). Arohanui, Tinks*
