You may have noticed I haven’t posted much about the flip house lately (affectionately dubbed Mouse House). As a new blogger, I get overwhelmed and caught up in the “perfect post” syndrome. The perfect post contains gorgeously styled, tack sharp photos, witty banter written in “my voice”, and the all-important “pinterest worthy” graphic.
needless to say with summer here, my 3 kiddos home all day, and moving into a new house and all that involves…. I do not have any of those “perfect post” requirements.
So what do I do? I don’t post about it at all.
ugh. that’s not fair to you, my loyal readers who have been following along with our progress and want to know how it’s going. And it’s not fair to my awesome hubby who has been tirelessly working away over there day after really long day. And it’s not fair to me… who is missing out on sharing all this really great blog content just because I don’t have “THE” perfect photo.
I am going to start sharing more. Even though my photography stinks and the house is not perfectly styled and my hubby hates getting his picture taken… and a thousand other reasons.
I need to start being more myself and less what I think “the perfect blogger” needs to be. Yes, I’m trying to build a business and un-styled messy photos do not get tons of follows on Instagram.
But guess what? I am not perfect and I don’t want any of you guys to think that I am anyway. I am a hugely flawed, imperfect sinner saved by the only truly perfect One to walk the Earth.
And I want my kids to know that they don’t have to be perfect either. In school, in life, in just every day things – isn’t it nice to know that we don’t have to measure up to this impossibly unattainable ideal?
The weight has been lifted from my shoulders.
I feel better already 🙂
