Lets be honest...

It's WEDNESDAY! So that means my guest blogger canwinn is back. Don't forget to go read my post over on her blog. While you are there poke around at her stuff I'm sure you will like what you see read. But before you go, and after you read what she has here, make sure and be good little followers, show her some love and comment!!!
(yep, I'm still rockin the right side!!)

Have you ever noticed how people in the blog-o-sphere tend to put their best foot forward. 
I doubt it's intentional, but the reality is that we portray our perfection for the world at large.
So lets be honest.
My children are rarely dressed for success. My house is hardly pristine.
 I am not perfect.
Are you?
My typical hairstyle is a ponytail.
 My make-up rarely goes beyond eyeliner. 
 My scale is clearly about 30 pounds off and my clothes have definitely shrunk in the washer.
And that's just the tip of the iceberg!
I could go on and on about my family relationships, my house, my bills, my self-perception, or a myriad of other areas within my life... none of which is solidly founded in bliss.
Blogging is a fun way to show off my best person, but do you know what? It takes me about 30 minutes to write a blog post. 30 minutes that define the very essence of who I am.
Wow, I sure wish that were true. If my house looked like my blog does I'd be living my dream. If my kids only ever behaved badly enough to joke about I'd have the easiest job on earth. If my life were all smiling faces and bright pictures things would be fantastic!
So let's be honest. With ourselves and with those around us. Don't hide it, flaunt it.... even just a little.

Last time I shared my more honest side, I got in trouble with my mom. :(

lol, I once got a call from someone close telling me I'd hurt their feelings. Oops. :) I guess it's important you are careful how you word the honesty. hehehe
