I’m a single (homeschooling) mom of 3 and work full time as a Business + Project Manager.
At work, I kill it! Modest, I know. But it’s the truth. I’m grateful to do what I’m good at. My brain thinks in systems and is always looking for ways to make even the most difficult things simple.
In my personal life, I feel like a hot mess more often than not. So my blog is where I sit down and just let my thoughts flow from my head to my fingertips.
I could just share the work side of me- the on top of it, super organized, best foot forward, always polished self. But I’d be missing the opportunity to connect with you on a real human level.
Here’s the thing, I can kill it at work and be great at what I do. But I can also be human and struggle with real-life sh*t. So while it’s certainly easier for me to work things out in the privacy of my journal, I’ve found that healing is in sharing. It’s therapeutic to get out what I feel on paper. It’s healing for it to be seen by someone else who understands and we recognize the feeling of our struggle as we work through it.
My intention is that we all give ourselves permission to be human. To strip the filters from our life. To strive for progress instead of perfection. To say “hey, today was rough, but I’m doing the best I can!”. To recognize that it’s ok to not be ok all of the time. To realize that doing GREAT in one aspect of your life might mean that you’re BARELY holding it together in other areas. To let go of the notion that we need to be the modern Superwoman.
If one post helps one woman feel like she’s not alone, that what she feels is normal, or that she’s not the only one whose life doesn’t look like Instagram, then I’ve done what I’ve set out to do!
Here’s to normalizing normal,
