All the Social Media???
Friday, July 25, 2014
Now, a short reason why I have all the social media. I became determined to do this after a lot of years of excuses and whatever else. So I needed somewhere to be accountable and somewhere where people aren't always going to be nice or understanding. So I started my blog and realized there is SO little reach there.
And so I moved to each new type of media, most I've used before, but I either reinvented it (Instagram) or I flatout started over (Pinterest).
The absolute biggest part of all of this? Working on me. After I became a Beachbody Coach, I learned that the company is HUGE on personal development, so why not? I'll get on board. And wow, am I happy I took that dive off a cliff. I have done SO MUCH reading and learning better techniques to plan and so much more. I watch videos and I apply the lessons learned to myself, so that I can better myself, for me and for those around me.
As such, one of my main goals was to not just share my journey. That wasn't enough anymore. I needed to motivate, to inspire, to be real, but to always try my best to be positive. A lot of you know me from way back when, you know of the trials my journey has had because you've lived it through my blogs with me. Positive, when it comes to my personal journey, has rarely been my middle name. And so I'm making it my middle name. Because what I put out there comes back to me.
Then there's the fact I'm far more spiritual. I've always been an off and on church goer, but never one to shout it from the rooftops. Because I SO heavily believe that each person should live the lives they wish to live, and this does include religion, I have kept my mouth mostly shut because I didn't want to offend anyone or make them feel as though I'm rejecting them. I wanted to be open to everybody, but at the expense of shutting myself down. So now I do talk about my spirituality with the goal that I do it openly and without a tone of I'm preaching, because I truly want each person to experience their own lives as they see fit, but I'm also not going to hide any piece of myself anymore.
There have been a lot of changes and I'm proud of them. I'm proud of the person I am becoming and finally proud of the journey I am on.
