Your friendly reminder that this is what’s going on much of my days over here…⁣

For such a tiny human he makes a lottt of messes.⁣

The thing is, we post what we choose to post. Do I choose to post cute, well-put-together-looking baby pictures (a lot)? Yes! And I’m good with that. Are most of our days also puke-covered, food-crusted, and diaper-changing-disaster-filled? Ohh yes.⁣

Anything anyone posts is a split second snapshot of their lives. You have no idea what else is happening, what they’re feeling at the moment, how true that picture is to their lives, or really anything other than – okay here’s a picture of something, which could be staged or filtered, and which may or may not have even happened on that day. ⁣

This pic is for sure not staged (I wouldn’t do that to myself!) but it also didn’t happen just now. Some variation of it did .⁣

If you’re looking through someone’s feed and thinking ughh their life is so perfect, or they do the coolest things, their house is so clean, they’re in the best shape, their food is so fancy, they must have so much money, their kids are so easy…⁣

Time for a reality check, my friend!⁣

Instagram and Facebook aren’t our lives in a nutshell. They’re what we choose to post of our lives. Now I love a beautifully curated feed…I look through them all the time. Food, travel, mental health, influencers, business, lifestyle, parenting, all of em. I also know they’re curated how that person wants. I’m cool with that! ⁣

But if those I’m or or or feelings start creeping in…time to check yo’self. ⁣

Everyone and everything is imperfect. That’s what makes us unique and interesting and what makes us us, right?! We’re not robots. has a perfect life. We all make messes. ⁣

And sometimes the messiest moments in our lives turn into the best memories. Or the best lessons. Or the best reminders that each of us is just beautifully human.⁣

What messy moment can you find beauty in? ✌
