I’ve had enough of all the “surveys” about the most annoying posts on social media. I get it…some people don’t like seeing post about workouts, or like seeing pictures of kids. You know what? If that’s the case, de-friend me or unfollow. Because if you know me, you know that’s what I’m about. My instagram feed is a pretty good representation of everything that’s important in my life.
I post these things because I think that since we’re connected that you want a little glimpse into my world and I expect the same in return. I want to feel inspired by you. I want to congratulate you and I want to connect with people with similar interests.
I know life is tough but social media can bring people together in remarkable ways. If I’m friends with you on any social media stream, you should understand what you’re getting into. You should understand that I genuinely care and want to experience/support/cheer you on. That means I WANT to see what run you just finished. I want to see pictures of your kids. I want to hear how your going through something and just need some support because it’s those things that bring us together.
I don’t sugar coat anything about my life and I don’t want you to think you have to either. Life is hard but use social media for good or to feel inspired. I read somewhere that
“Good people bring out the good in other people”
I hope that I’ve brought out a little good in you because you’ve brought out good in me.
Social media has opened up doors and provided me opportunities that I didn’t even know existed. My blog has allowed me to express myself in a way I didn’t even know I cared about. Looking back, all those diaries should have been my first indication of my path to blogging but who knew?! I have been extremely fortunate to have had so many amazing experiences as a result of this virtual world that has somehow become more than a virtual universe. I have real friends, I’ve made real contacts and I’ve found a real passion in connecting with other parents and fitness minded people.
So to all you that agree with this survey, maybe we should break up. I’m not in this for the “numbers” I’m in it for the connections. So turn the channel because I am who I am…like it or not. Or next time you see me post about my next big goal, use it motivation to set and achieve your own because if I can do it, you can too. No excuse in the world is big enough to keep you from something you’re passionate about. You might have to fight a little harder but SO BE IT!
AND just to end this on a good note, here are a couple pictures from my instagram feed that really represent me! Enjoy!
