I have been a wee bit MIA. The last month has been a bit eye opening for me. I work in an industry where I have the privileged of lifting women up, helping them to build a business and create sustainable income for them and their families. I use a blog, social media and many other online avenues to promote.

I was thrown off when a friend of mine said to me the reason it took me so long to decided to work with you is - “I can’t be like you....always happy and positive.” Total brick to the head. Yes we want our online presence to be positive but are we creating an expectation of impossible perfection. I have not until this week put only positive lines out there....well thanks to my fabulously wise friend Brandy - we are now keeping it real.

Blessing in disguise, admitting out loud to flaws has done some amazing things. I own it, I accept it and you know what I AM HUMAN and NOT PERFECT!

Day 1 - I have something living in my fridge and it is not a science project.
Day 2 - I got a ticket for not stopping long enough at a right hand red light turn....and forgot to pay it.
Day 3 - I always try to include everyone and really hurt when not included or someone close to me is left out.
Day 4 - after a round of a prescription drugs this year I have a terrible skin discoloration on my face - very self conscious about it and do everything to cover it up. ( wow that was hard to post )

They go on and every day I will post a keeping it real...I know I am not the only one who feels this way and I think as women we need to keep it real and not fall into the disease called perfection.
