The temptations are all around me to be Super Woman.
Some people blame Mommy Bloggers but I don't buy that. We choose what blogs we read, they're not forced on us like some forms of media can be (advertisements, etc). If we don't like their message we take them off our Google Reader and say good bye. Not to mention most blogs are just people's stories. I've personally never read a blog where a woman said her life was perfect or made her readers feel less worthy because theirs didn't mirror hers, but that's just me.
And sidenote, if you have found those blogs, get rid of them! If you want some new blogs on your Reader, ask me, I follow some wonderful blogs - and always read feeling encouraged and inspired, nothing more.
My point is, there are countless opportunities for women to not feel like they're doing enough.
The myth of Super Woman/Mom/Wife is just that... a myth.
No one has it all together. No one's baby never cries. No one's house is always sparkling. No one's cooking or baking or decorating is flawless. No one's husband is the perfect prince charming (sorry Babe, just keepin' it real). No one's life is all ups and no downs, all highs and no lows.
No one is super woman/mom/wife, but we keep comparing ourselves to Her.
I found this comparison chart today and I LOVE it. I want to be an abiding woman. Not super woman. Anyone else?
