I have a confession to make.
I didn’t even realize I was doing it. It was totally subconscious. And I only realized it recently after some deep reflection on how I was using my social media.
So, how did this happen?
Instagram and social media in general is full of these amazing moms and women, their social media strategy is killer, their photos are amazing. And perfect.
Everything about them seems perfect. From color coordinated outfits, to flawless makeup, spotless homes, not a hair out of place. This is not how my motherhood journey looks!
I felt pretty inadequate compared to the moms that I see with perfectly curated social media. I felt like nobody wants to see my flaws, my imperfect life, our daily mess.
I felt like my kids are my only great accomplishment, so why not focus on them? But my son is overdue for a haircut, and my daughter like to pick her own outfits which are definitely not as perfect as the outfits of the perfect social media moms.
But I realized something.
If I could find my own little tribe of women who are killing it, but because they are working so hard their house is a mess, their kids need a haircut and they can’t recall the last time they set foot in a spa! Then it will be worth it.
