The slipperiest slope of all for me though is the "wanting." Wanting the stuff I don't need, wanting to be somewhere I'm not. Wanting to be a little more stylish, beautiful, wittier, more interesting, talented or whatever. What I really want is to be happy to LOVE and grow. I truly do find so much inspiration daily of ways to find and create the joy in my life through the people in the blog world. It is a tough balance to not get carried away with "missing out" on the things I wish I were or had.
Today Megan took the words right out of my mouth. It is no secret I have a huge crush on her beautiful Anne of Green Gables meets Pippy Long Stocking soul (thanks robin for helping me find that marriage). Sorry Megan, but i have to gush...you are just so fantastic. And i mean that in the most encouraging way. So uninhibited and playful and not afraid to show vulnerability. Her admirable initiative and humble approach to life puts her at the tippy top of the blogs that inspire me. Not to mention she is a clever little amateur filmmaker. Just look at this video she made in an attempt to defy her feelings of wanting....and totally nailing it!
In the end, i mostly just love to blog. even when i hate it, i love it. And I want to help you appreciate and love the simple things in life just like megan does for me...for that is what this blog is supposed to be all about: LOVE! Albeit unconventional or awkward at times (like, not the deep mushy gooshy kind). Its definitely sprinkled with lots of teasing and sarcasm (okay, so i get a little carried away with that, but how can i not? Life is funny.) Its about loving my family, remembering to love myself, spreading the love of motherhood, and learning to love moments more than things.
