Transparent Tuesday

Well, I'm breaking the #1 blogging rule of all times today. There are absolutely no pretty pictures in today's post. Sorry, friends, it's about transparency today and you're in for the real deal.

A long time ago, I heard a psychologist on a show talk about what the insides of your cabinets/closets look like and what that says about you. Oh no! There are just so many translations of what you're about to see. That psychologist would have a hay day analyzing me for sure.

Cover your eyes Feast your eyes on the candy cabinet...

 Hello, Mr. Santa. Is there candy in you or are you just hanging out enjoying the view? Would you believe me if I told you I cleaned this area out right before Christmas?!

 Right below that beautiful cabinet of wonderfulness is the ever-so-popular junk drawer. You know how it goes...ring, ring..."Hey! Oh, you're on your way? Great!" Quick...shove it in the drawer so they don't think we're slobs.
 Need a pot? Hope you don't expect to find the lid! It's there though, I promise.
Aaaannnd, the craft closet. This is 100% my junk. I can't blame this mess on anyone else in the family. So wish I could!

So, back to my psychologist friend and his thoughts. I'm thinking he'd nail me with a description like this (based on my closets and cabinets)... "She wants everyone to think she's got it all together, so her outward appearance is generally nice and clean. But man, oh man, look what a hot mess she is on the inside!!!"

No need to leave a comment telling me to stop being so hard on myself. If I were really worried about things, I'd be quick to clean up these messes. But, I can guarantee that if you were to visit in a month or two, these areas would still look like this!

What's going on in your life? Do you need a little encouragement today? Hopefully, you've learned through this post, that I'm no super woman and I'm very much REAL. If there are areas where you're struggling to be real, I'd love to pray for you. Leave me a comment or send me an email: dfrieling1@gmail.com. Prayer is powerful, friends!

I'm right there with you! My friends suggested a scavenger hunt for a birthday party, I said, "Not a chance people are opening my closets and drawers, heaven forbid they go to the basement!" Wish we had a candy cabinet!

Girl... mine look the exact same. If this really says something about me I am screwed!! But I think it really just means I have more important things to do than clean out my cabinets ;)

I can never find the lids either...

If that is REAL!! Then I must be!! The more I try to organize the more of a mess I make!!!
And those lids?? Seriously, where do they go?

We all have some of this, apparently. I am making over a couple of rooms - dining room and office and reorganizing my paperwork and 2 closets and getting rid of kids' old toys from basement so yes, I have some of this. Thank you for sharing, Dana!
