Mums Keeping It Real
There is a change happening and I can feel it, I can even now start to see it, spreading through the social media sites.
Mums are fed up with the super mum tag, fed up with trying to appear and be perfect at everything, all the time.
Mums now want more fresh honesty, realness, personality and humour.
We want to know we are not alone. That another mum has felt the same as us or been through what we have.
Sometimes we want the real because we just want to feel more connected and grounded. We want to reach out and talk to other real, honest mums, even if they are on the other side of the world. To read that it is not just us that has had a horrible day and to reassure ourselves that one bad day a does not make us a failure.
It can be an enriching experience to hear the emotional story behind an inspiring mum or an experience from a motherhood journey. Good, sad and life changing ones. We want to be moved, inspired, uplifted, touched by another person, even if we have never met them. We want to be able to embrace our emotions and their story. Sometimes we just want to hear that the inspiring women we look up to are real too, just like us.
The trend happening is women now want more REAL.
Let's be honest, if you want an escape from reality you can grab a fabulous book or dvd.
Sometimes it is more refreshing to get a does of realness.
We want to know we are not alone, maybe to be reminded that actually we are pretty blessed, or are doing really well and that that everybody is different but everybody is human too.
