I know for the most part on ASPOM all that I post is uplifting or something that can be helpful, and I really try my hardest to make sure nothing negative is on here… because I do want this space to be as positive as it can be. But, at the same time I am human and I want to share more of my hard times too. I know there are many women out there that want to find some sort of community or friendships that doesn’t feel like “oh well this family is perfect and they seem like they always have it together” I want us (ASP babes) to be a community of friendships that we can all come together and talk about the good, the bad, and the ugly. I want this ASP community to be all about a group of friendships that we can all give advice when needed, help when needed, laughter when needed, a good cry when needed, and an overall place to just feel like everyone belongs.
What you see on social media… and in every square on Instagram, Facebook, etc. are families that always seem like they got it together, nothing but smiles, beautiful homes that don’t ever seem dirty or a mess, beautiful families, vacations, fashion, luxury, the list goes on and on.. and honestly, I’m guilty of it. I do choose what I want to be on my IG feed and other social medias as well, and I do choose what I want to share in general, but the truth behind every squared image is not perfection and at times chaos. A messy home right after I just spent 5 hours cleaning (yes.. even with my children being 7 & 9 they still make a mess), my kids fighting with each other, my husband and I being annoyed with one another, a stressed out mom trying to be a 2nd grade teacher and a 4th grade teacher, and a mom that goes stir crazy because their kids aren’t listening, and so much more. Life isn’t perfect. No ones life is, and as much as we look at others social medias and dream or wish we had “that life”… we HAVE to remember NO ONES LIFE IS PERFECT! Not mine… not yours.. no anyones!
So, what now.. well I’m still going to be sharing what I share on here, BUT I will also be more vulnerable and open and share more of the struggle as well. Topics that may not be so positive. Just more open ended topics that we can all talk about and come together.
Now, ASPOM will definitely NOT be a place of negativity and I’m not saying I will be posting more raw post than others, but there will be topics, maybe even some uncomfortable, every now and then.. and hopefully these post will either help you feel a sense of not being alone or maybe even offer a hand of advice.
I want to make this change and not just share only the positive. This will be a space of an uplifting group of badass babes here for one another! So, with all that said… I will NOT tolerate people being assholes! We are all here as girlfriends so let’s not be rude or judgmental! Please and thank you!
I’m so excited for this and for the topics that will be discussed in the future! I also plan on eventually launching a ASP private Facebook group so we can carry on topics and other conversations on there as well! I will definitely keep you all updated when that will be launching!
