Five Minute Friday: Alone

One thing I've noticed since becoming a mama, a teacher, a wife....well, basically from being a woman....we all have this fear that we are messing up.

We worry that....

I am the only mama that yells at her kids.

I am the only wife who is so dog-tired that she falls asleep in the middle of a conversation with her husband.

I am the only teacher that is feeling in over her head.

I am the only one who secretly eats the last Little Debbie snack cake.

I am the only one who......

Yea, just go ahead and fill in the blank with that one.

Sweet girl....

I've learned something.

I've got a secret to tell you.

You, my friend, you are NOT alone.

Don't ever feel that way.

I so apologize if I've ever led you to believe that I have it all together.

I don't.

Not one bit. Not at all.

Girls, listen.  We've got to stop. We've got to stop comparing. We've got to stop posting only how glorious our life is.  We've got to stop putting on a show.

We've got to tell the messy truth.  Life is messy. It's hard.  We aren't perfect.  Those are such simple truths, yet so hard to believe.


Yes, you

with the spit up on your shirt

unwashed hair

sleep deprived

coffee drinking



You are not alone.

There is strength in numbers.  Let's be encouragers.  Let's share our messy.  Let's be real.

Thank you so much for joining me today.  I hope you will visit the Five Minute Friday community and share the love of words.


  1. Amen, Natasha! The reality is everyone has a story (!) and a bit of encouragement goes a long way!
