Something really cool happened for me yesterday. I was completely affirmed in my "people loving", if that makes sense. I have been hurt alot over the past few months but yesterday gave me hope and reminded me that I "DO" make friends easily, I'm relaxed and in my element when it comes to meeting people and being social and so were those other moms too! It was awesome!
Facebook can be great for meeting and getting to know people, especially moms since we don't have the opportunity in a group setting with toddlers to TRULY have a conversation! Ha! BUT it can also "show" a life that isn't completely what it "IS" for real. I heard the phrase "Super Mom" and was told how great I do this or that so you know I had to correct that on the spot. I LOVE TO CRAFT, am always on the go, and love to have fun with my kids, yes. BUT, I"m also way hyper and have problems sitting still! The thing that I explained they don't see is what I DON'T post. Locking myself in the bathroom away from screaming kids to have a "mommy time out" and wash my face for a couple minutes so I don't lose my shit on them! Taking an impromptu nap because I JUST. CAN'T. DO. ANYMORE. My kids yelling and fighting and me sending them up to their rooms stomping and screaming....my foul language....yeah the REAL stuff that people don't see but we all go through it at some level.....WE ARE MOMS and have CHILDREN. It's reality. My hope is with my transparency and "what you see is what you get" way I am will benefit others!
Anyway, spending the morning with new friends and Fifi then a Halloween potluck with a few of my "old" friends, LOL.....turned out to be a great day!
My life right now feels peaceful.
