A recent facebook comment teased me about my always clean counters and perfectly plated meals that I post. Of course, I clean up for a post! But, she wanted to see the "real" kitchen with gooey counters and slop on the plate. Made me laugh and also realize how much pressure we may be creating in social media with our posts.
We post pictures of our perfect family photo sessions, our special meals, our blissful vacations. Really? Is that really what's going on? Not in my house. What if we posted what's real for one day?
Post your messy kitchen, unmade bed and the meal that was a flop. Post the tantrum, the dog poop and the Pinterest project that didn't work. It's a double edged sword. I believe that we get what we focus on, so I don't want you focusing on the yucky stuff. But, don't we all feel better to know that we aren't alone? We aren't perfect. No one. Nobody. Nada. So, as a response to this blog, I challenge you to post the real stuff, even if just once!
