Highlight reel vs. Behind the scenes

“The reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare

our behind-the-scenes with everyone else’s highlight reel.”

 

Do you struggle with this?

I must confess, that on occasion, I do.

Blogs and Pinterest and Facebook certainly don’t help,

but what can I say, I’m addicted.

I think we all want the “perfect life” or perhaps

what we think is the “perfect life”.

I love to post pictures of Kenny’s gardening….

it’s his passion.  Here is a picture of a new garden area

that he has been working on.

I think it’s lovely and I just know that the birds will like having

another bird bath to splash around in this summer.

Here’s Lonnie enjoying another area of the garden.

What you don’t see in these pictures are what is going on

“behind the scenes”….

Pool being opened up, murky water,

assorted “stuff” strung everywhere, concrete that needs

to be power washed.

I guess, today, I’m just checking in and trying to “keep it real”.

I want you to know that in all the garden pictures, if you look

closely, you’ll see wild violets, wild strawberries, dandelions,

etc.

If you live in a perfect world, kudos to you, as for me, I just

prefer to “crop” out the not so pretty parts.
