The Whole Truth

Written by Dorothy Price

I am a writer. That is my gift. I own that truth. Are there any truths you need to own?

For some people, Facebook is part of our daily routine. Wake, shower, brush teeth, check Facebook. I admit to taking part in this social media phenomenon, mainly the posts that encourage healthy dialogue. Like this one: “How do supermoms do it?“

After reading the gamut of responses, I chimed in as well, agreeing with the post above mine. In a nutshell, the woman said there is no such thing. I agree, wholeheartedly.

One of my daily challenges used to be (and often still is) owning the truth that I will never be a supermom. Guess what? That’s okay. I will never have it all together, all of the time, every day of the year. If I did, that would make me, well perfect. And that I definitely am, not!

The more I live, learn, listen and read, the more I begin to accept the fact that perfection is an unattainable goal. Now, whenever I hear the word supermom, I smile. For me, that is a title I am confident in owning I will never be.

And that is the whole truth.
