HI! I’m so glad you decided to join me here. You’re going to get a kick out of this :)

So…Motherhood took me by complete surprise. I knew it would be hard but I never imagined it would be THIS hard. As a self-proclaimed perfectionist, you can just imagine how upturned my life became once kids entered the picture. I hung in there for a couple of years but eventually, it all got to be too much and I had a mommy temper tantrum. I RARELY journal but I got out a pen and paper and verbally spewed onto the page…anything and everything I could think of that was frustrating me. I was just letting it all go.

When I was all done, I had to laugh. It was kind of funny. I wondered if anyone else felt like I did so I posted it on a blog and sent to every woman I know. And you know what? I was so relieved and comforted by the response…SOOOO many people said “Me Too!” and I realized there is GREAT comfort in getting real, letting go of perfectionism, and learning to just breathe…and LAUGH.

So check it out and see if you can relate. (This is almost word for word from my journal!) A warning: It’s LONG. I had a LOT to get out.
