I’m kinda popular….

I stop to think about what I do, asking how social media has changed my life, because I recognize that my transparency is non traditional and in a real world society that still holds some relatively traditional values…makes me, not so popular. I have spent nearly a year trying to figure out what about me inspires others to want to follow, take the time to comment or like what I have to say? What about me is adding value to the lives of those who are listening and how can I take those answers to help others.

Accountability:  I have become a doer, and that’s a huge. It’s one thing to talk about changing your life it’s another to do something about it, to make it better and share that. Social media, has held me accountable to share and that’s saved me from falling into anymore then a moment of self loathing, because there is always someone who has it worse off.

The reality is…who wants to surround themselves with false ideas or expectations of what everyday really is, who wants to surround themselves with those who turn a blind eye when your seeking help, and who wants to surround themselves with those who aren’t “doing” anything to add value to your life. 

Reaction: How we react to others, is what demonstrates and challenges our true character. I remind myself, it’s not about me…It’s about what I shared, commented on or liked that made someone else feel uncomfortable, insecure or maybe even afraid. First rule of thumb, If you have nothing nice to say then say nothing at all and don’t react until you have the facts. If this means you have to remove yourself or unfollow, then do it. These tips apply to all my relationships, not just social media. We all have a choice, if you don’t like it then don’t follow it.

Judgment:  When I post a selfie it’s simply because I am holding myself accountable to what or who inspired me. It may just be a matter of making someone smile adding some joy to their day, or me showing gratitude for the people or product that helped me and sometimes…I admit, I do just appreciate me and that’s ok. Don’t place judgement until you take the time to really know their story. When I share something, it’s because it’s added value to my life and what I share is simple enthusiasm for that.

I share that times are changing, social goodness is on the rise and most importantly we are more accepting of those who may be different or just think differently. I am grateful to be able to share and glad I have found a place where my transparency is appreciated and might just be kinda cool.

Sharing your story

Yes everyone does have a story and I am humbled to be able to share mine with you, thanks to social media.

I am genuinely transparent exactly what you see and read everyday. I am a human being who is imperfect has compassion and empathy for other human beings and simply seeks a simple moment each day, I celebrate my life.  I am giving back whatever I can and listening to those who need to be heard.  I am just a simple mom that wasn’t so simple-minded and started spreading #365daysofjoy in a hashtag.

I am passionate about being inspired by others and empowered to help others to find their voice in this often changing and very loud world of social media. I wanted to do something for those that aren’t as comfortable to share, or simply just haven’t been given the proper tools to find the right outlets or direction. What was my way of,  “thinking outside the box”, making time for myself as a mom, connecting with my kids online and seeking a sustainable lifestyle…Is now becoming the makings of a successful future educating not just myself but now others on how they can sustain happiness within their own life’s joy and passions.

I use my enthusiasm and positive energy to make a difference.  If we share what we are passionate about with the right people we will most certainly inspire success. There are no excuses or reasons to take the easy road or justify failure, we can all be successful and have dreams that are absolutely sustainable. I do believe “not naive” requirements are hard work, dedication, consistency and a desire to make a better life for your future.

Social media successful story telling is not easy. It’s simply a reflection of how we choose to live our life and the message we send to others that inspires them to want to share. It may be one follower, one like, one tweet but most importantly its one day at a time. I am always gratuitous to those that listen, care and share. We are all able and accountable to at the least try…

This is a healing process for me writing to you being relatable and showing a side of humanity that many people don’t often get to see or lack the courage to share. I hope you do find inspiration and courage, to believe that your story will inspire someone. I know mine has and I hope you take the time to value yours, because I value all that share with me.
