Because sometimes in this social media driven world we only see the highlight reel of someones day. We see the silver lining and without realizing it our day that was going pretty well seems to lose it’s beauty because it’s not as enjoyable to look at as the quick glimpse we receive of someone else’s.
I’m fearful that the same thing may happen to me on this blog. I will write about all the pretty moments of marriage and motherhood and somewhere down the road I will look back at these posts and say…”if only I could go back…those were the days…”
When in reality these days have their own moments as well.
So in the age of silver lining, let’s not forget to show that there is ALWAYS more to the story.
I received a free t-shirt in the mail this weekend for completing a workout program through Beachbody. Who doesn’t love a free shirt?! So I did what any girl would do…I painted my nails to match, fixed up my hair, and took a selfie!
More to the Story…
What this picture doesn’t show is that I was in a hurry to take the picture before running errands with my two kiddos because we all know your perfectly styled hair goes out the window the second you hit the great out doors in the beautiful state of GA!
This picture also blocks the noises on the other side of the door as my 3 year old leads a herd of toy animals across the bathroom floor. It doesn’t show me holding my breath waiting for the “uh oh” of whatever accident is about to follow…
And last but not least, the picture doesn’t show the tiny toes and sticky fingers of my 19 month old as she hides behind the mirror that I am attempting to take said “selfie” in front of.
And that’s the rest of the story.by
