A few years ago, while working on a round robin tag book project called SEE ME, I sent an email out to everyone I knew asking them to describe me.
Now I have to admit that the people who didn't like me much didn't answer. But otherwise the number one response was TRANSPARENT which made me happy because I do try to be transparent. Now, don't get me wrong - everyone doesn't know everything. As a matter of fact, I don't think any one person knows it all, though my husband comes close.
I want to be real with those around me - if you're gonna love me, it's not gonna be cuz you only know the good parts.
With that in mind, here's a little more about me:
I am no Mother Theresa.I think I do a good job of loving my kids but baking for birthdays or Christmas? HA!! Why do that when there are so many local bakeries that need my financial support?
And I am no Martha Stewart.
I'm very organized as an accountant but getting everything else done in a timely manner? HA!! Where's the mystery in life if it all goes according to plan?
And cleaning? What a joke!! I can't get the FUN stuff done let alone the stuff I hate. So you're gonna have to ignore dust bunnies at my house.
So when I read this blog post, I had to pass it along: Being Really Real
Remember, perfectionism can be both irritating and BORING!
