May is the month we celebrate moms and I also wanted it to be the launch of my personal blog where I journal the “adventures” of motherhood. I have wanted to start a blog for some time now and this month presented the most appropriate time to do so. I want this blog to serve as an outlet for me and a place for self reflection as I raise my children and enter into the different phases of motherhood. The other day when I told my husband I was ready to get this going, he asked me how this blog would be different from others out there. My response was, “UnPerfecting Motherhood is a blog where I am able to talk about my journey as a Christian mom who doesn’t have it all figured out, but through prayer and a personal relationship with God, I can be the best mom, not a perfect one who knows or does everything right.” I want to share my experiences with other moms and have open dialog. On my About Me page, I speak about how I try to do it all and be the “perfect” mom. I came to the realization (again after a convo with my husband) that all the pressure to be perfect was coming from within because that’s how I feel society expects me to be. “Perfect”. But I can’t do all that I need to do out of my own strength. I’m still learning and I want this blog to serve as my journal. It is not a place for judgement, but assistance. So, will you join me?
