Do you ever want to be that other person? The person who is the super mom and can do 95 things on top of having 6 kids and having a husband who is deployed. The person with all the friends in the world they could possibly want who are always writing on their facebook wall how much they mean to them and how great of a person they are. The person with the perfect life, great friends, great marriage, great family. The person who has everything together, who is always positive and never had a bad day in their life. The person who is the perfect wife, having the house clean and spotless and having dinner on the table everyday at exactly 6pm. The person who has an awesome personality, is funny, witty, and charming all at once. That person.
I know things aren’t always what they seem, but when they seem that way it’s hard to think about anything else. I want to be that person. I want to have it all together, have good friends who have my back, and never have a bad day to talk about. I want to be beautiful and feel beautiful, love and be loved. I want to be the best mom that I can, the best wife that I can, the best friend that I can be.
But I just feel pulled in so many different directions. I feel like I do so much, put so much out there and in the end it never matters because there is always someone prettier, smarter, funnier, and just all around better person than I am. There is so much to do, and never enough time. Something always gets brushed aside. How can I keep it all together and still be that person? The person everyone wants to be? How can I still be me?
