Well, I got the disc today and I have mixed feelings:
- on the one hand, I'm thrilled that there are a few good ones in there
- on the other hand, I have some snippets recorded for posterity of just how bad that day was and it brought ALL those emotions back
- I really should get my hair coloured before any shoot!
this is a really nice one
this is at the end of the shoot when the kids wanted NOTHING to do with me. Poor Bronwyn tried to rescue the shoot by having me cling to D but I know what was going on so this pic makes me sad...
look at this - Kendra only wants Daddy, I'm distraught, D's being the solid rock and Connor's disengaged
as you can see, Connor is also done! Look at my face - tells the whole story!
Perfection is overrated, right?
Do you prefer to show a view of only the good to the world, or a more balanced but honest view?
By the way, I just remembered something I read, again on Simple Mom.
She said that with the advent of the internet and blogs, it's become easier to portray the not-so-nice stuff.
I didn't read all the comments but somewhere along the top, someone said what I think - on the contrary, it's become harder to portray the imperfection.
Personally, I think just looking and reading all the blogs (and especially Facebook, but that's another post for another day) makes it seem like other people's lives are perfect.
In our minds we can logically think that cannot be so... but when people share only the wonderful things, it's hard not to compare your lot in life with theirs and think you're lacking.
