real life is messy.

i want you to do something.
i want you to
picture me {im}perfectly.
real life is messy.
my life is messy.

and you know what?
i am not perfect.
not even close.
have you ever?
yes you have.
have you ever read or seen something
where you just knew that the lovely woman
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 a craft that went completely awry.
so many women 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.


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.

that’s real life.
and real life is messy.
but it is also really beautiful.

i want to encourage, inspire and
other women
that none of us have it all together.
