The Real Me

A few months back when I was still toying with the idea of blogging I asked myself, what is it that makes the blog world so alluring, why do I follow these women who choose to share portions of there life? The answer was, "I don't know why" I just know that in the world of blogging we see super versions of ourselves that are nicer to look at, we see what we want to be, we see what we think is successful and beautiful we're bits and pieces of the people we love, all put together into one shiny "you" that can be posted daily! We are escapes, we are women who have perfect skin and bodies and don't need makeup, who don't have meltdowns, we are moms that seem to never break a sweat.
On "Easy Peazy" I get to be this girl who has this perfect relationship with the women in her family, a girl who obviously is madly in love with her very attractive husband and never has arguments, a girl who is okay with just being what she is, who crafts pretty jewelry all day and has long talks with her friends...

The truth is I'm maybe a fraction of that better version of myself. I complain A LOT! sometimes I'm incredibly seclusive and shut myself off from most of my friends and loved ones. I can be very insensitive, judgmental, and cynical. I am incredibly insecure about my skin and have been in a constant battle with it since my late teens.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, I want to be honest here, I want to be able to look back and see the real me reflected in this blog and encourage other women to love themselves, feel empowered by what you are and what you create, whether it be a pretty piece of art or a life (as you enter motherhood). I'm not going to sit here and say, "we're all beautiful" because its been said, but I will say love yourself for what and who you are because you are the only you there is!
That said, I want to share a picture of the real me, the me that only I get to see in the mirror each morning, I want everyone who stumbles onto "Easy Peazy" to know that you aren't alone in your insecurities, we all have our own crap and we all are just trying to make the best of it. One day I will share with you what led up to this moment but for now this will have to do...

I have come across a few pictures online of celebs who say they're baring it all but still seem to have on make-up...whats up with that?!? I have seen one incredibly inspiring photo where a celeb is really baring it all, here, If you know of others feel free to share.
