It’s Monday Ya’ll!
It’s time to get on board the HOT MESS Express with me!
Let’s get real!
In my book, Just Breathe (and Take a Sip of Coffee): Homeschool in Step with God, I talk about the importance of not only sharing your wonderful homeschool days but to make sure we share our the crazy, messy, mixed up, awful homeschool days too. Yep, that’s right! Post your beautifully messy lives too!
Social media is filled with perfect little families, perfectly completed lessons, and perfectly clean houses. Don’t get me wrong, these pictures can be very encouraging and very inspiring to see especially for a mom like me who struggles. But also we need to remember that even the most seasoned homeschooling moms have bad moments, bad days, and even bad months.
Sharing with other moms your good, bad, AND ugly is an opportunity to be real.
- It is an opportunity for growth.
- It is an opportunity to laugh at ourselves.
- It is an opportunity to ask for prayer.
- It might even be an opportunity to encourage a mom just like you who might be struggling with the same things you are.
Check out today’s Coffee With Carrie IG post: https://www.instagram.com/p/CHp8mjQBNjF/. I give you a real look at last week’s mess in our home! Enjoy the piles of dirty cloths, unfinished school work, kitchen disasters, and desks covered in, well, all kinds of stuff. (And you can thank me later for making you feel like a super mom after you see it!)
It’s Messy Monday, ya’ll! Join me today!
Share your Monday messes in your IG stories and don’t forget to tag me @coffeewithcarrieconsultant so we can be hot messes together!
Be proud of your mess. It just proves that God isn’t finished with you yet. “He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”
Then make sure you listen to this week’s upcoming podcast. It drops on Thursday morning. I talk more about the importance of being transparent and dangers of the comparison trap.
See you @ Instagram today!
