The blogger perceptions...

I read a blog today  called Along for the Ride that really hit home and seemed like she has been listening to the thoughts I've been having in my own head lately... I think it's something worth reading...


I too have struggled with these feelings... and continue to do so even more when I get compliments from friends saying "I wish I was crafty like you" or "You have so much talent, I'm jealous"...while all those things make me feel awesome, I also feel bad at the same time because of course what I post is the good stuff...the crafts that turn out or the recipes that are simply amazing...having really nothing to do with me! lol And then that makes me think... those blogs that I adore are doing the same thing... I find my self wishing that my house had more order and my kids were calmer and that life in general was just simple... and then I remember that other blogs are struggling too... only they are just sharing the good stuff... not the messes on the floor, and the screaming kids and the crafts that didn't turn out so great... I think we all have so much to gain from all the messes life brings ourway too...and we all have them...no matter how "perfect" our blogs are! lol :)

I know. I love the blogs that seem perfect and then they mention that their kids were fighting that morning. Or whatever. :)
Life happens whether it's blogged or not and it's not always perfect. lol.

I hear ya friend! People don't see how many tries it has taken us to get to the cute finished product we are excited to share with everyone. I like looking at those organizing blogs..the ones i wish I could be more like. But who would want to read about the chaos that goes on in my house, the Mt Clothesmore I have in my bedroom, the tornado that has destroyed my livingroom, or the pile of dishes that waited until morning for me to do. I think you do an awesome job...and life is just a new battle/adventure each day. Whether it is crafting, organizing..or just living. Okay..my small post has turned into a long one..I will stop. Happy living!
