picture me {im}perfectly.

i want you to do something.
 i want you to picture me {im}perfectly.
because you know what?
i am not perfect.
not even close.

have you ever?
yes you have.
have you ever read a blog post
where you just knew that the lovely woman
who authored that blog had it all together?
and even though we know
in the way, way back of our heads
that they aren't perfect,
we still sometimes convince ourselves
that they would never, ever have:

laundry that has been sitting on their couch for three days
waiting to be folded and put away or
a floor that desperately needs to be mopped or
dishes that just sit and sit and sit in the sink or
children who throw fits or
something that went completely awry.

so many bloggers seem to have it all together.
but we really know that none of us do.
and you know what?
that's okay.
that's more than okay.
that's real life.

because no matter how prepared,
no matter how organized we are,
no matter how much planning we have done,

no matter how thoughtful we try to be,
sometimes things just fall apart and
sometimes we just fall apart.
and i think that we need the
regular reminder that
that happens to everybody.

picture me {im}perfectly
is a weekly project to reveal that we don't have it all together.
 it is hosted by a wonderful blog called,  Capturing Motherhood

i will be linking up to her blog post, picture me {im}perfectly
every wednesday, i encourage you to link up to her blog as well.

you are not picture perfect,
your kids are not picture perfect,
your house is not picture perfect,
your life is not always picture perfect,

inspire and
other women
that none of us have it all together. 

My picture me {im}perfectly posts.
