It’s been one of those mornings....the little voice in my head that sits there and tells me all the ways i’m falling short of being a good mom. it’s the little things my six year old says that i take personally and to heart, even though he doesn’t know any better and it has absolutely nothing to do with me as his mom. it’s one of those days i sit and beat myself up...knowing i’m doing the best i can and it’s pretty d**n good. i love them more than anything or anyone in the world. i just want them to know, that when all is said and done, i would have given anything for them and will always give anything for them. that i’ll always be here for them. that i don’t think i could possibly love them anymore than i do today and yet i know i will tomorrow and that i feel so incredibly blessed and lucky to be their imperfectly, perfect mom. #momlife#confessionsofamom#momofboys#mommatried#ilovethem#myheartandsoul#blessed#blessedmomma#imnotperfect#theystillloveme
One thing i have learned is that it’s ok not to be perfect. showing up is the hardest part. this week i posted a video of my pamper myself products. it wasn’t perfect by any means but i did it. and when i say it wasn’t perfect i mean it, my cat knocked over my phone and i forgot what i was going to say, but i went live on facebook and that’s all that counted. #facebooklive#imnotperfect#showup
At first, i was very much in doubt whether to share this photo with you or not. the green leaves are not at all flawless, the lighting was not the best because of the angle at which i was photographing. to be honest, over all, i just felt like it was just not good enough for sharing...because it's not perfect.
that goes for many of the things i do. i tend to over criticize myself as a person and everything i create all the time. i struggle with being vulnerable and really putting myself out there...because i'm not perfect.
do i expect other people to be perfect? no. do i think they expect me to be perfect? totally! why do i do that? the best answer i have right now is that i don't know.
and yet, the jewelry i make is intentionally imperfect. aside from the shape, i also make the pattern on the metal surface by hand, with a hammer. it gives it a special kind of shine and makes every single piece truly unique (since it's impossible to strike in the exact same spots with a hammer by hand twice). so while my creativity as a jeweller makes imperfections shine, literally shine, my ego is holding me back because i'm not perfect and nothing i'll ever create will be. gotta love the internal struggle because it happens often! and i grew so tired of it. so i'm just going to deconstruct this idea of being perfect.
i'm all for self-improvement and i intent to keep that. perfection? that belongs in an ideal world, somewhere over the rainbow and i intent to keep it there.🧘
p.s.: no matter your time zone, i wish you all a wonderful time! 🌼🍁🍂
Tu sei cosi, non parli, urli.
non scherzi, provochi.
se qualcuno ti guarda non abbassi lo sguardo, lo sostieni come se fosse una sfida, e continui finché chi ti sta fissando non abbassa lo sguardo...
tu sei cosi... #imnotperfect #imoriginal 🔛🥀❤️🙊
