I want to have a chat about the highs and lows of social media.
I started my blog just 1 year ago and I have been very fortunate with it.I have had an amazing year and have had some amazing opportunities come my way. I have worked with some amazing brands/companies and we have worked on some amazing media stories. I have some amazing supportive followers who say such kind things to me every day. I am truly grateful for every single one of you.There have definitely been more highs than lows, however, I have met some very unkind people along the way who don’t like to see you succeed. These people have also said; “You are not good enough” or that ” you don’t work hard enough” or that “You have missed the boat” I say; “well you try being a mum of 9 who lives rural and home schools her children full-time. I do what I can with my blog and it gives me so much Joy to write and put content out there for everyone to read. I work very hard at everything I do. I put my heart and soul into everything I write. I am learning new things every day and will continue to build on my craft. I let most things go over my head but I have my bad days. I am only human after all. Being a mother is a tough gig no matter how many kids you have!I want to continue to inspire people and share my life experiences and even if it only helps one person then I’m happy. I’m not a perfect writer but I write because I’m passionate about it.Instagram is an amazing outlet and can be a very supportive place, it’s also a great place to connect with other mum’s. I will always be real, raw and honest with you. It’s important to never let anyone bring you down! You do you! And I will do me! We are all on a journey. Everything I do is for my family and family and faith will always come first above all else. Always be your authentic self and don;t ever let anyone bully you or tell you to be a certain way. Its none of their business how you lead your life.
Be careful not to get sucked into the dark side of social media. There is so much ‘fakeness’ on social media and it’s important not to believe everything that you see or read.
Be kind always because you don’t know what the other person could be going through Support each other always The negative nancie’s wont ever stop me from doing what I love!I am here for the long haul.
Thanks for your ongoing support
Love always Claire X.
