A couple of months back, I noticed women sharing "truth moments" surrounding motherhood on social media. While I supported the cause through likes and comments, I inherently thought I couldn't join without being a mom. That thought plagues me often, the one where I think I don't belong because I'm still waiting for that right of passage as a grown woman. It feels similar to when we wait for our first bra; you don't want to be the last. You don't want to be left behind. I realize that is a dangerous and unhealthy road to travel, but never the less the thought sneaks in often.
So, as just me, a women, here are my truths for this Tuesday.
// I use paper towels. I know the environment hates me but, until I have my own washer/dryer, I'm not sitting on filthy rags for a week.
// Sometimes I workout four days a week, sometimes it's only once. When life is hectic or overwhelming I let it go and pick back up the next week...it's been a long winter, ok! :-)
// Long division? Forget about it. I don't remember how to do it by hand anymore!
// I actually do enjoy cooking, but a week long meal plan still alludes me. Despite my best efforts, cereal or eggs wind up being dinner towards the end of the week.
// I enjoy watching television and becoming invested in the characters lives. Jordan and I feel like we are basically a part of the Braverman clan.
// On certain occasions when editing photos, I've used the Photoshop patch tool to remove breakouts on my face.
// When I was younger, I used a notebook to jot down every Baby-sitters Club book I read to make sure I didn't miss or re-read one. I will still watch the movie if it happens to be on TV!
