Mom Confession: I Drool When I Sleep and The Struggle of Being REAL

I must admit that on days when I am SUPER tired, I wake up in the morning and I realize I drooled! My hair is soaking and so is my pillow. GROSS!!

This didn’t use to happen to me when I was younger, but now that I am older AND I am working on serving a larger audience, it does happen. (I can’t believe I just told you that!)

Whatever the reason, you must agree this confession is pretty vulnerable. After all, nobody likes to admit something embarrassing, right? Our first thought is “what would people think?”

But don’t worry… I won’ get you to confess that you drool too, haha. Instead, I want to talk to you about the importance of being REAL.

As humans, we must take the risk of being REAL, so we can experience the gift of unconditional love.

Life is more than “perfect social media pictures,” and we ALL have embarrassing moments and truths behind who we are. These imperfect moments don’t define us, but they are real and it’s okay to share them openly.

Our society today is pressed from all directions on how “perfect” we must be and I bet you have often felt the pressure to step up your game in order to appear to be better than you are.

But what if we started sharing something REAL about us… what if we shared those realities more often and with more people? What if we could commit to being more vulnerable and more open with others? What would be the purpose behind it? Is it just to share our imperfections?

THE BENEFITS OF BEING REAL

The reason for being real is it creates a greater connection with yourself and with others. As humans, we must take the risk of being REAL, so we can experience the gift of unconditional love. Being real allows you to peel the layers of your need for acceptance and helps you realize that others CAN and WILL love you for who you are (even if you drool, lol!).

Homework: I want you to consider how real you are in a scale from 1 to 10. Once you have that number… deduct 5 points, because that is how real you REALLY are. Now consider the benefits of sharing more openly- about those things that you would NEVER share- and make a commitment to stretch your level of vulnerability for the sake of connecting more with yourself and with others.
