In case anyone thinks I “do it all” and do it perfectly this is what my kitchen table looked like yesterday afternoon – at one of the neater points in the day:
It’s covered in dirty cloth napkins, bits of gaskets for the wood stove door, gasket glue, books, newspaper, cups, water bottles, mail and more. At one point it there were screwdrivers, hammers, and knives piled on, too. Jeff had started to clean up (hence the missing tools) when this blog post came to my mind and I snapped the photo.
There’s just so much to do and as important as the kitchen table and shared meals around the table is to me, sometimes life gets really busy and the table gets overloaded. I think it important to remember that often we go about talking about all the good bits on blogs that it appears as if there are no bad bits. I just wanted to make sure it was apparent that there are bad and messy bits from time to time too.
I think its important to remember that while many of us live our dream lives, it doesn’t mean that our lives are dream-like all the time. That’s most certainly true for me – I can’t imagine living a different life than I have now, I am living my personal dream, however; my life isn’t that perfect dream-like state of perfection that we imagine will happen when we plan our dream lifestyle.
Care to keep it real with me? Do tell, what’s not dream-like in your current dream life?
