Clang! Clang! Clang! – When Whole Living Goes Wrong

1 Corinthians 13 love chapter

Do you read whole food and healthy living blogs and just feel like you can’t do it all?

Do you think that the blogger behind all of the tips and recipes must have this perfect healthy life?

I do.

Well, I sure hope you haven’t thought that about me.

I’m getting real today.

Getting real about my struggles and about where I need to improve.

Please join me over at the The Better Mom and get a glimpse into my everyday life as a work in progress.  Maybe you can identify.

I’d love to hear your thoughts either here or over at The Better Mom.

  1. “Do you think that the blogger behind all of the tips and recipes must have this perfect healthy life?” Yes. sometimes. Most often I realize they’re blogging what they want us to see and often that is the positive things in life and what makes the blogger happy. It’s not so much about perfection.

    • You’re right, Jill. Also, it would be obviously not in good taste to just blog about everything that goes wrong. Just like it wouldn’t be right to just tell your friends (or your spouse :-)) everything that isn’t going “your way.” Still, I thought it important to say that it pretty much defeats the purpose of making and doing a bunch of healthy things if I am not being “healthy” in my interaction w/ my family at the same time. Probably a life-long battle, but one that I hope to see some victory in nonetheless.

  2. I was just telling my friend the other day, “you know, i just can’t do it all”. glad someone else agrees! but we CAN do your best! :) now following your FB page also!

    • We can’t do it all. Saying yes to one thing means saying no to another. And I guess I’m learning (will keep learning) that loving comes first. The doing comes later. Hey, that’s catchy :-). Thanks for the follow :-).

  3. It always cracks me up when people post or comment about finding the balance to be able to do EVERYthing. I tell them that the balance isn’t in doing everything perfectly or even EVERYthing at all…it’s figuring out what to let go :)

  4. Thankfully, I know I can’t do it all. And I don’t know that I want to read tons of complaining, but I enjoy honesty. That’s kind of our philosophy at Wayward Girls’ Crafts–when crafting doesn’t work out exactly as planned.

  5. I agree. I think whole living is great to aspire, too, but it’s not always easy!

  6. love love love your honesty!!
    and it’s not much different around here some days. I am so proud of your for lettin’ it all hang out!
    more room for for GRACE!
    blessings!
