This is real

Hello, October. Relax, say cheese, and don’t worry about the broccoli in your teeth. This month it’s all about getting real.

I got out of bed with very little gumption today. But at least I got out.  #thisisreal

Seasons collide. Yesterday it was 75 degrees; today the snowblower gets picked up for winterizing. #thisisreal

A few weeks ago, when gathering insurance information in order to renew my license tab for 2016, I opened the small portfolio I keep in the car (should I get pulled over) and found this. #thisisreal  #excellentdriver

“Tell us the story behind your photo. If it’s beautiful, also share the ugly. If it’s a sink full of dirty dishes, let us have it. Let’s turn social media on its head with reminders that the pictures are pretty but the struggle is real.” – Christina Crook

Thirty one days of “pictures and captions of life as it really is: in its glory and in its muck. This isn’t about authenticity for authenticity’s sake. It’s about an invitation to be something other than the gussied-up versions of ourselves – because to be human is a beautiful thing.” – Jen Pollock Michel
