The internet is a lie. There, we said it.
Instagram, Facebook… we are only showing the very best version of ourselves (and our families, if we are being totally honest here). What we deem “post-worthy” is a picture perfect version of our own reality. Glazing over all those tiny details about the 4,000 not so great things that happened before this perfectly well-lit photo and subsequent caption about how #blessed we are.
What we neglected to post about was the speeding ticket we got last week, or the fight we just got into with our teenager, or the closing that fell through at the very last minute, or the fact we spent the entire weekend binge-watching our newest obsession. We only share the really good stuff. It’s so easy to scroll through your social networking feeds and start to feel a little depressed because all you’re seeing is everyone’s BEST LIFE. And you being to feel like maybe you’re not as successful as the person posting about their promotion, or engagement, or incredible vacation — their life looks SO perfect that you couldn’t possibly measure up.
We have literally been trained to only post things people will “like.” And while it’s great to share accomplishments and beautifully curated photos with friends and strangers online, there’s a complete lack of transparency of what daily reality is actually like. We are here to shed a little truth about real-life mom life, working life, and all of the in-betweens and we are so excited you are following us on this journey.
