I've been dealing with some interesting things in my life lately. By "interesting" I mean challenges, triumphs, sorrows...life. They're not on my Facebook page or in my Tweets, but they are very real in my day.
As an author I promote my brand, my type of book. On Facebook I have an author page devoted more to writing and reading, and my personal page...well, it's not so personal anymore. I've removed photos that were too intimate or about my kids. I'm being more careful, aren't we all? But in doing that, I can see how someone might read my posts or tweets and think "she has the perfect life." I'm incredibly blessed, yes. But I'm a real woman with a heart that pumps blood and love for my own. I struggle with so many of the same issues we all do. I'm human.
