i am sensing that something is in the air....
something many of us are struggling with.
i have had a few conversations with friends
regarding these same topics and it certainly helps me
to know that i am not alone in the
feelings i have been experiencing on and off
in my couple of years of blogging and creating
the feelings of inadequacy.
the feelings of "i'm not good enough".
the feelings of "who do i think i am?"
the feelings of "look at what she is doing...
why didn't i think of that?"
the feelings of "how do i find balance to create and
be a good mom and a good wife, etc...??
the feelings of "why does the grass always seem to be
greener on the other side?"
the feelings of "what is really real in the blogosphere/online?"
and just "how real" should we get when we blog?
my friend Lara did a post today that really hit home for me.
She touches on many of these subjects and
I truly admire her view point on it.
loved this in particular...Lara said
"The “not knowing we’re alone” part seems to come only when you seek it out, at least for me. I guess those people who crack open have always been a porch light and I flap like a moth around it to feel some sort of comfort that..you know..these things take time."
So today i am asking all of you...
how do we focus on the fact that the grass
isn't necessarily greener elsewhere...
but instead is greener where we water it?
how do we stop comparing and start owning
our authentic "good enough" selves???
how do we have the guts to show the ugly in our
lives too on our blogs...without sounding
like we want a pity party thrown in our honor??
i would love you to weigh in on this...
as it is something i believe we all can relate to.
