Keeping it real.
Although what's more real that a beautiful breastfed baby in the buff?
So I feel like it's important (to me) to share why this blog will present such a sunshine and lollipops view of my life.
I'm a really big believer that what you put out into the world is what you get back. And of course terrible and tragic stuff just happens, because we live in the world. And of course in my own life I've dealt with heartbreak and stress and difficult times. But if I choose to look back on this in say ten years time, would that be what I want to be reminded of? It's enough to get through those times without reliving the traumas anymore than necessary. I want the world to see my little life as a joy-filled and optimistic adventure, because that's how I see it.
I have four children. I get tired. I get angry. I get bored.
But I also experience such joy that my heart could burst. Every day. Watching my precious baby girl trying to roll over that darned arm in the way tonight filled me with such happiness. And if by sharing that happiness I can make someone else a little happy, well why not hey?
Dishonest? Absolutely not. Because my truth lives in happiness, and even when things are tough there's always a new day on its way.
