Why I Am A Bad Mom - Shame, Vulnerability, & Fandoms

Check it out; I'm back! Rest assured, I've been being a bad mom in my bloggy absence, but now I'm ready to share it all with you again. Since my last update I've probably written a hundred entries, but they were just in my head. Nothing seemed to come out the way I wanted it to. I have been battling with some personal demons. I was super involved in a friend's wedding. I came up with a lot of good excuses to not actually write anything. In short, I was feeling less than perfect and didn't feel like sharing.

When I start feeling my worst, I turn to books that help put things in perspective, and for me that is most often anything by Brené Brown. Well I was looking to download a book to read from my library and Daring Greatly showed up on my suggested reads. I read the book a few years ago, but now seemed a good time to refresh. It was just what I needed. It made me realize that a lot of the issues I've been dealing with stem from shame and my want for the perfect blog has prevented me from posting anything. But the whole point of this blog is my imperfection, so I'm ready to embrace it and start showing off those flaws!

I'm adding Shame and Perfectionism to my list of superpowers and I'm moving forward. Prepare for things to start returning to wonderful.
